Texas State University and San Marcos, Texas partnership lands $1.85 million grant
from The San Marcos Mercury
A partnership between Texas State University and San Marcos, Texas has landed a $1.85 million award from the U.S. Economic Development Administration in support of the new Science, Technology and Advanced Research building. The grant funds the construction of a state-of-the-art research and commercialization center at Texas State through the Office of Commercialization and Industrial Relations. The new facility will serve as a technology accelerator for startup and early-stage businesses, and will provide university and STAR tenants access to secure wet labs, clean rooms and office space. Green and bio-technology companies will be a major focus, and backers hope that San Marcos' convenient location between Austin and San Antonio will work to attract corporate research interest from those cities' technology communities.
