SCET incubates labs in opportunity-rich emerging industries such as meat alternatives, Blockchain, and Data/AI to create an industry focus and ecosystem at Berkeley.

Our Innovation X lab allows students and professionals to explore the latest innovation strategies for a variety of industries. Results from our labs create knowledge and inform the Sutardja Center's undergraduate, graduate, professional, and executive courses and programs.

The Center develops thought leadership, particularly in the innovation/entrepreneurship process and frameworks which include the A. Richard Newton Lecture Series: A Berkeley Changemaker™ Course, Berkeley Method, Innovation Collider, Innovation Engineering, and more.


Innovation Collider

What is the Innovation Collider?

The SCET fosters creates an innovation environment by facilitating "collisions" of people and groups that can make unique contributions by bringing diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences. Our Innovation Collider brings together students, faculty, investors, alumni, professionals, executives, firms, and global institutions to connect through our programs, courses, and X-Labs. Through these collisions, SCET can create new ventures, corporate innovations, social impact and help entrepreneurs discover what's next.
