UEDA 2015 Annual Summit - 9/29 - Let’s Talk About Our Future: Innovation Centers, Universities & Communities


Published on

SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center opened in 2008 with two buildings and an event space. By spring 2015 it grew to three buildings, 325 apartments, and event spaces that host hundreds of monthly meetings. Now the SkySong partners—private developers, the ASU Foundation, and Arizona State University—are embarking on the next phase of development. In a small group format, attendees will provide input on what SkySong should do next and learn about creating specialized spaces beyond their traditional campus. Organizations having physical spaces that connect to their broader communities are encouraged to attend to create a live learning session.
Janet Holston, Director of Special Initiatives, Office of the President, Arizona State University
