University of Montana Launches Montana CleanTech Alliance (MCA)

Announced during the Innovate Montana Innovation & Entrepreneurship Day on June 21st, the MCA will work to support and enhance growth in the clean-technology industry in the state by increasing awareness of Montana's existing clean-tech sector. The alliance will help clean-tech companies create jobs, access capital, invest and improve their ability to compete in the global marketplace. UM?s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, will help support the MCA over the next several years. The outreach and workforce development effort under EPSCoR focuses on private sector collaborations in conjunction with the Montana Institute on Ecosytems.
