Campus Conversation: Berkeley Space Center
On Oct. 16, Berkeley announced an exciting new project - the Berkeley Space Center at NASA Research Park, a planned 36-acre innovation hub in the heart of Silicon Valley. As envisioned, the multi-phase development will accelerate the area’s existing innovation ecosystem, catalyzing deeper collaboration between the private, academic and governmental sectors. The joint venture is dedicated to identifying, incubating and launching technological breakthroughs across a diverse set of fields including astronautics, quantum computing, climate studies and the social sciences.
Located within NASA’s Ames Research Center’s NASA Research Park, Berkeley Space Center will be designed from the ground up to foster a collaborative environment with the critical mass and infrastructure needed to expand the frontiers of knowledge and develop tomorrow’s defining technologies. Overall, the development is expected to generate considerable employment opportunities, including more than 6,000 advanced R&D positions. With a focus on high-growth, high-impact sectors, Berkeley Space Center aims to further cement the State of California as a global innovation leader.
