N. Clay Robbins, president of the Endowment, said Discovery Park has the potential to transform Indiana and its economy.

"Purdue, because of its international prominence in the high-technology fields, is a magnificent resource," he said. "The university not only graduates large numbers of scientists, engineers and information specialists, but it also has immense research capacity and expertise in its business, management and entrepreneurial studies.

"The Endowment is especially intrigued by the synergies that should be achieved through the strategic linkages among the Discovery Park's centers. The Discovery Park will be a magnet for intellectual talent and should complement the good work of the Purdue Research Park by dramatically increasing technology transfer activity."

Sara B. Cobb, Endowment vice president for education, said: "For the last several years, the Endowment has invited selected Indiana colleges and universities to propose to us bold, creative ideas that emerge from their histories and missions and that will cause the institutions to achieve new levels of distinction. We also have asked that these projects have the potential to add significantly to the well-being of the state of Indiana. Purdue has exceeded our expectations with this proposal. Discovery Park should pay large dividends for the people of Indiana."

Purdue held a ceremonial groundbreaking Sept. 7 on the first of those buildings, the $51 million Birck Nanotechnology Center. The new center, scheduled to open in the fall of 2004, will be among the best university facilities in the nation dedicated to nanotechnology research, Jischke said. It will be funded with a combination of private and public money.

HDR Inc., a worldwide architectural-engineering firm headquartered in Omaha, Neb., is designing the center. HDR recently designed the Advanced Measurement Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technolo
