Aided by a $350,000 grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration, UTSA will study the potential benefits of creating an innovation and research park that will utilize the university’s research programs and San Antonio’s diverse economy.
UTSA’s Campus Master Plan includes a proposed Tricentennial Innovation Park, a multi-campus development on both a 50-acre tract on the main campus and prospective land near the downtown campus.
The study will promote and integrate UTSA’s research with government, the private sector, and other research organizations to provide the university with information it needs for site development, governance structure, and construction planning.
It also will help UTSA identify the recommended target partners, needed facilities, and future costs of the park.
Once the 12-month feasibility project is complete, UTSA officials will review it to decide next steps in the development and construction of the innovation park.
