Announcing a new RFP for Sensors and Big Data for Solving Environmental Challenges

The Energy and Environment Affiliates Program and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment are pleased to announce a Request for Proposals on "Sensors and Big Data for Solving Environmental Challenges." The deadline to apply was June 30th. For further information, pleased contact Brian Sharbono, Program Manager, sharbono@stanford.edu


Stanford Sensors Research Directory  This new directory makes it easy to see who is working on sensors at Stanford University.

newBatteries Focused Group formed to focus on batteries and similar electronic energy storage, including supercapacitors.

Fellow-Mentor-Advisor Program provides our members with enhanced access to research-in-progress, close interactions with researchers working on innovative solutions to challenges in the energy and environment fields, and strategic recruitment opportunities with our students.

Activities and Events include two major conferences per year, three new faculty seminars, plus other custom meetings.

Program Objectives

  • Engage companies and other organizations in Stanford research in energy, environment, materials, chemistry, and sustainability.
  • Team faculty and graduate students with industry representatives on research projects.
  • Provide financial support for research and education.
  • Foster more rapid commercialization of working solutions.

The Energy and Environment Affiliates Program ( EEAP) is a partnership between member industrial firms and Stanford University.

The program supports advanced research, policy study, outreach, and education across a broad range of issues at the intersection of energy and environmental science, materials and chemistry, technology, and policy. In addition, it provides a means for member organizations to not only directly support our activities, but to be involved more closely than they could otherwise with Stanford's research activities in these areas.
