ST. LOUIS — Saint Louis University and Washington University on Tuesday officially unveiled the COLLAB, a joint venture innovation center in the Cortex district.
The two universities plan to use the 7,700-square-foot facility, located inside Cortex’s 4220 building, for education programs in cybersecurity, entrepreneurship and cutting-edge disciplines.
SLU and Washington University also intend for COLLAB to foster collaboration between academia and industry, with plans to hold events that bring together academic, business, civic and innovation officials.
“All regional tech hubs have strong universities that provide talent, generate research, and produce technologies that launch entrepreneurial companies and advance the regional economy. The COLLAB is a powerful innovation focal point that will bring students, researchers, entrepreneurs and corporates together to propel Cortex and the region forward,” said Dennis Lower, president and CEO of the Cortex Innovation Community.
