Kips Bay Science & Research Campus (SPARC)

A Public/Private Partnership Transforming Life Sciences in NYC

A panel discussion with City and State leaders focusing on the new Kips Bay Science Park & Research Campus (SPARC), a far-reaching public-private partnership designed to promote New York City's leadership in the life sciences.

The panel will provide an overview of SPARC, the history of the project's development as a public-private partnership, how the key players came together to create this ground-breaking project, and a final look at its intended economic impact on the city and job growth. SPARC will strengthen New York City's leadership in the life sciences nationally and internationally and promote economic growth and job creation.
