Case Western Reserve University has received a grant of $2 million from the Maltz Family Foundation of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland to establish the Milton and Tamar Maltz Professorship in Energy Innovation, the university's first endowed professorship in energy.
As an anchor of the new Great Lakes Institute for Energy Innovation, the professorship serves as the cornerstone for the university's energy program and will provide leadership for the program's academic and research nucleus.
The grant also builds substantially on recent startup funding by the Cleveland Foundation, which provided $3.6 million in December 2007 to support the creation of the Great Lakes Institute for Energy Innovation. Read more.
