Gift of $100 million to transform energy and environment research at Princeton
Date:7/1/2008

tings could allow much more efficient burning of existing fuels.

As provided for in the University's recently published Campus Plan, the new, 110,000-square-foot Andlinger Laboratory will be located between the Engineering Quadrangle and Bowen Hall, home of the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials. It will include flexible lab and teaching spaces that foster collaborations across disciplines and with researchers from industry.

Andlinger's gift includes a fund for innovative research that has potential for enormous impact in areas traditionally difficult to support through conventional federal research funds. Another fund will support conferences, workshops and lecture series as well as a robust program of visitors from academia, industry and government.

In addition to these technical areas, the center will support teaching and research that intersects with public policy, through the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and with the natural sciences, through the Princeton Environmental Institute.

"Princeton is already one of the leading institutions in the world for understanding the global climate and how it is changing," said Stephen Pacala, director of the Princeton Environmental Institute. "With this generous gift, Gerry Andlinger is allowing us to take a dramatic step forward and couple that expertise with a greatly increased capacity in engineering to develop lasting solutions."

The gift is part of the University's recently launched fundraising campaign, "Aspire: A Plan for Princeton," which includes a major emphasis on "Engineering and a Sustainable Society."

"Gerry Andlinger's extraordinary generosity will have a powerful impact on engineering at Princeton," said H. Vincent Poor, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. "The research it stimulates will not only help solve pressing societal problems but will also create a vibrant environment
