LSU Innovation Park wins emerging research award

The LSU Innovation Park has won the Emerging Research Park Award from the Association of University Research Parks, a professional association of university-related research and science parks.

Innovation Park was recognized for excelling in bringing technology from the laboratory to economically viable business activities and promoting business growth and public revenue.

While the Louisiana Business and Technology Center has been providing incubation services for 25 years, LSU made the decision in 2008 to proceed with the new Louisiana State Innovation Park. The Park has since become home to such organizations as the LSU Center for BioModular Multi-Scale Systems, the Louisiana Technology Transfer Office, and EA (Electronic Arts) Sports.
