The University of Illinois System, together with Chicago and state officials, plan to today announce plans for a major technology research lab to be built in Chicago, Crain's Chicago Business reported. The idea is to bring the engineering and technology expertise of the university's flagship campus in Urbana-Champaign to Chicago, and the plan calls for the involvement of other Midwestern universities -- including private institutions and those from other states. “We are in competition with other cities of the world to be a place where great minds want to live. We need to institutionalize that,” said Deputy Mayor Steve Koch, who has been involved in developing the plan.
New York City is supporting the development of a new technology campus by Cornell University and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, and that effort has attracted considerable attention from leaders of other cities.
