SWIC officially launched

We got word Wednesday afternoon that the State of California has signed the contract with Nova to fund the SolarTech Workforce Innovations Collaborative.

While the state committed $19 million in Green Innovation Challenge funding for six projects with its June 29 announcement, the expedited award schedule left a few details unresolved at the time of the award.

Approval of the SolarTech project plan had relatively smooth sailing, probably because of the previous Industry-Driven Regional Collaborative (IDRC) that also involved SolarTech and De Anza College.

The SJSU part of the SWIC will focus on two activities: curriculum development, and a series of surveys of solar industry employers.

Stay tuned for more info…
