Innovation Partnership Building Officially Open
By: Mike Enright, UConn Communications
UConn is home to some of the most active and innovative researchers in the world. Across all of the University’s campuses, scholars, artists, and scientists are working on projects that will help our state, society, economy, and the world.
That global commitment was demonstrated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for UConn’s Innovation Partnership Building (IPB) on Discovery Drive in Storrs Thursday.
UConn President Susan Herbst, U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, various state legislators, and faculty, staff, and students took part in the morning event.
The IPB is UConn’s premier center for state-of-the-art equipment, cutting-edge research, and cross-disciplinary industrial partnerships. The new facility houses 10 industrial research and development centers that cover a diverse base, ranging from advanced manufacturing to biomedical devices to cybersecurity.
