Blum Center UC Davis

The Blum Center for Developing Economies addresses the needs of poor communities in developing countries. We prepare students with the theoretical understanding, applied skills, and experiential learning. Our courses and grants programs enable students to become agents of change in the war against world poverty.

Through a trans-disciplinary approach, the Blum Center invests in the development of new technologies with high potential for the developing world.

Science and technology have been making it possible for creative students to develop scalable and sustainable solutions. As a result, we are proud to see how some of our students’ social projects have become a major breakthrough in international development.

We are doing our part to improve the life conditions of the people in need. You can also make a difference for the world to become a more equal place.
