About Us

The Water, Environmental, and Energy Solutions (WEES) Initiative is supported through the Technology Research Fund which was first authorized in 2000 with the passage of Proposition 301. Each 5-year cycle has had a slightly different organizational structure. 

TRIF-WEES at UA supports interdisciplinary and cross-sector collaborations that lead to scientific, technological, and policy-related solutions and innovations that help to close that loop and safeguard both the people and environment of Arizona and beyond.
