University of New Orleans Research and Technology Park Becomes The Beach at UNO

The University of New Orleans (UNO) Research and Technology Park has been rebranded to The Beach at UNO. The “sandbox for collaboration” unveiled a new website, social media handles, logo, and tagline. 

The Beach is a 30-acre site with roughly 800,000 square feet of office and lab space designed to promote entrepreneurship, collaboration, and innovation. 

“The New Orleans business and entrepreneurial ecosystem is burgeoning with much opportunity for growth,” said Research and Technology Foundation President and CEO Rebecca Conwell. “Our city benefits from a great depth of brilliant and inspired minds and a network of support for the innovative process.”

Owned and managed by the UNO Research & Technology Foundation, The Beach campus encourages research, development, technology advancement, training, and educational opportunities, according to a recent release. 

“The park has long been one of the University of New Orleans’ closest partners, and we are so excited about this re-energized partnership,” said UNO President John Nicklow. “The Beach combines the best of the Foundation and UNO, providing tenants with access to world-class laboratory space, research equipment, and talent beyond the borders of the research park, bringing out the best of academia, government, and entrepreneurial endeavors.”
