how these inventions can be turned into commercial technologies."

Ochoa said the Clean Tech Innovation Challenge is unique because it is a private-public partnership.

"The local clean technology industry could be as big as the telecommunications or biotechnology industry, but it requires a concerted effort," she said. "It's important to have this type of public-private partnership to create economic growth and jobs."

Jacques Chirazi, program manager for the City of San Diego Clean Tech Initiative, said the program is right in line with San Diego's famed success of brining innovations from the lab to the marketplace.

"Qualcomm and Cymer are great examples of that," Chirazi said. "We need to continue to tap into the knowledge we have at our local research institutions and universities like UC San Diego and SDSU.

"San Diego has a lot of homegrown technology and science that we can nurture and grow," he added. "The von Liebig Center is a unique model to help this region accomplish that. The center has been recognized as one of the best models in the nation for accelerating research in the nation. The center has a very well designed process of bringing technology from concept to commercialization."

Chirazi said one of the goals of the Clean Tech Innovation Challenge is to inspire innovation in this growing field by encouraging more local researchers, corporations and the San Diego business community to participate in the program.

The following is a brief description of the Clean Tech Innovation Challenge winners and their projects:
