As the state’s flagship university, research is a cornerstone of LSU. To further its commitment to innovation, the university began planning a dedicated complex for research commercialization in 2005. Located just five miles south of the main campus, the LSU Innovation Park provides faculty and students with a broader avenue for intellectual enrichment and technological discovery by partnering scientific investigation and business enterprise under one umbrella. By helping researchers bring new technology to market, the LSU Innovation Park creates high-quality jobs, benefits the community, and enhances the image of Louisiana.
