Mon, 04/17/2023

LAWRENCE — KU faculty, staff and students are invited to celebrate the opening of the newest KU Innovation Park facility from 4 to 6 p.m. April 20.

Located at 2033 Becker Drive, the “Phase III expansion facility” encompasses 66,000 square feet of lab and office space and is situated adjacent to park’s main facility.

The April 20 celebration event will be the first opportunity for the KU community to tour the building since its completion. KUIP hosted a ribbon-cutting event for the facility in August 2022, at which point the interior of the building was not yet finished.

The grand opening celebration is open to everyone in the community. Food and drink will be provided. Guests are kindly asked to RSVP.

KU Innovation Park is an economic development organization and business incubator that provides lab and office facilities to support innovation- and technology-focused companies and entrepreneurs. The organization comprises 64 companies totaling 600 jobs and nearly $40 million in payroll.
