ASU Proposers Day invites industry leaders to collaborate on state issues
In support of Arizona’s New Economy Initiative, ASU is establishing five science and technology centers. Kyle Squires, dean of the Fulton Schools, says the initiative’s main goal is the creation of high-value jobs. The initiative project will help shorten the time between the conception of new ideas for technological innovations and the implementation of processes to bring those new ideas to fruition, Squires says. That will speed formation of new companies, along with the hiring of employees to develop and produce new systems and technologies. Squires says the plan is for new ideas to be proposed before the end of the year and to start work on the new centers and projects as early as February.
