Tech receives $1.1M grant
Louisiana Tech University has been awarded a $1.1 million grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA) for establishing the Louisiana Tech “LA_i6” Proof of Concept Center to support and expedite the introduction of new “green” technology innovations into markets throughout the region and the nation.
LA_i6, to be operated by Tech’s Enterprise Center and housed in University Hall on the Tech campus, will partner with companies along the Interstate 20 innovation corridor in North Louisiana, south Arkansas, west central Mississippi and northeast Texas. Other private sector partners will come from across the country to North Louisiana to participate in the LA_i6 activities. LA_i6 will also work to amplify and promote the social, environmental and economic impacts of green technologies produced through the center and its partners.
