Brewer Science’s contribution to Missouri State University Foundation inspires technology innovation
Gift will expand Jordan Valley Innovation Center
Springfield, Mo.–April 13, 2021– Brewer Science, Inc. completed a significant, corporate contribution to Missouri State University Foundation as part of its “Onward, Upward” campaign. With this gift, Brewer Science is supporting the construction of the Jordan Valley Innovation Center (JVIC) building expansion that is expected to be completed in early 2022.
The 30,000 square-foot addition will serve as the main entrance to JVIC and will be known as the Brewer Science Innovation Annex.
Brewer Science was a founding affiliate of JVIC in 2007 and has partnered with MSU since 2004. Dr. Terry Brewer, founder and CEO of Brewer Science, was instrumental in developing the innovation partnership model for JVIC. Brewer Science drives collaborative technology innovation at JVIC in the areas of printed electronics, smart devices and materials development. With this expansion, Brewer Science will also be expanding its presence and commitment to JVIC and the Springfield community for the continued advancement of innovation. “Our unique partnership with the Jordan Valley Innovation Center has been a tremendous benefit to Brewer Science and supported our ability to develop smart device technologies. We are excited to contribute to the building expansion and increase our commitment to the mission of JVIC,” says Dr. Brewer.
JVIC is a state-of-the-art facility located near downtown Springfield, MO, that provides a location to conduct cutting-edge research and product development within a collaborative environment as a part of Missouri State University’s IDEA Commons.
Both Missouri State University Foundation and Brewer Science are celebrating their 40th anniversaries in 2021.
“This announcement is a tremendous way to honor the legacy of Dr. Terry Brewer and Brewer Science as the company celebrates 40 years of innovation,” said MSU President Clif Smart. “The expansion of JVIC will add space for corporate partners and will continue to drive growth of research and technology solutions. As one of the original JVIC affiliates and a global industry leader, it is fitting that the Brewer Science name be associated with a facility that is leading the way in technological innovation.”
A grand opening ceremony will be held upon completion of the building addition.
