Innovation Academy courses resonate with the convergence space concept of UNM’s InnovateABQ campus in Downtown Albuquerque’s Innovation District. While Innovation Academy courses can be in many places, bringing together people with disparate interests sparks creativity. UNM’s faculty and students can brainstorm with local entrepreneurs from all sectors, including the creative arts and design community, and the high-tech economic sector. UNM’s Arts Lab and the ABQ+UNM City Lab offer other potential locations for IA work.
