Collaboration Meets Innovation: Environmental Venture Projects and Realizing Environmental Innovation Program
Since 2004, Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment seed grants have played a vital role in realizing Stanfords vision of a vibrant interdisciplinary academy that can generate solutions to the most pressing environmental problems of our time. The Environmental Venture Projects (EVP) and the Realizing Environmental Innovation Program (REIP) have a strong track record of kick-starting high-risk, high-reward interdisciplinary research. The reach of these programs is broad: the Institute has granted more than $15 million to 103 research teams spanning all seven of Stanfords schools and 34 of its departments. These projects have touched more than 29 countries around the globe.
