UTSA Explores Creation of On-Campus Innovation Park

The University of Texas at San Antonio has received $350,000 from the U.S. Economic Development Administration for the Tricentennial Innovation Park Study Investment. UTSA will use the funds to study the potential benefit of creating an innovation and research park that would encompass land on both the university’s main campus and its downtown campus.

Al Salgado, assistant VP for small business and community engagement for UTSA’s Institute for Economic Development, is spearheading the innovation park effort.

“The feasibility study will seek out, promote and integrate our research with government, the private sector and various research foundations,” Salgado said.

The project would integrate collaboration space among researchers and provide corporate access to research staff and student interns. It would allocate laboratory research space with private offices; state-of-the-art lab equipment; lease space for small and large businesses; work space and technology for networking; and coworking for students, entrepreneurs and stakeholders.
