Harvard launches fund to support commercialization of green technologies

Harvard University is launching a new fund to support the commercialization of technologies that address climate change.

The Climate and Sustainability Translational Fund will provide financial support and mentorship to researchers and entrepreneurs aiming to bring climate-friendly technologies from the lab to the marketplace.

The fund is a partnership between the Harvard Office of Technology Development (OTD) and the school’s Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability.

“The magnitude of the climate crisis, and the need to bring a wide range of talents together to craft solutions, compel us to support researchers from across the university who are working on new approaches to combat global climate challenges,” says Alan M. Garber, provost and chief academic officer at Harvard University. “The launch of this fund will enable Harvard to make significant progress toward the translation of climate and sustainability research and its application.”

Jim Stock, director of the Salata Institute, comments, “Partnering with OTD on the Translational Fund will further empower Harvard researchers to drive real-world impact by creating new technologies, expanding applications, and realizing efficiencies.”
