The media and public are invited to attend the first board meeting for the newly formed Texas Tech Research Park nonprofit organization.

Inaugural board meeting for the new Texas Tech Research Park 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

9:30-11:20 a.m. Monday (March 2)

Texas Tech University Innovation Hub at Research Park, 3911 Fourth Street, Rooms 103-105

The board meeting marks the next chapter in the beginnings of the first innovation district in Lubbock. Leaders of the city's academic and business communities see West Texas as perfectly positioned for this collaborative effort.

Kimberly Gramm, associate vice president of Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Texas Tech said, "At this stage, I think the vision is broad. We want to set the tone so people understand what it is and why it is important to the lives of our citizens. We want to give people a chance to have input and engage in the development process to create something unique to and for the people of West Texas."
