The CERM (Center for Energy Resources Management) building is a $20 million, 104,000 square feet multi-purpose research and conference center facility, which opened in 2002 in the University of New Orleans (UNO) Research and Technology Park. Conveniently located adjacent to the university’s Lakefront Campus and overlooking Lake Pontchartrain, the CERM building now includes a diverse tenant base, including university researchers, companies collaborating with UNO on a variety of high-tech research projects, not-for-profit organizations, and local and state agencies.
Current research conducted in CERM facilities includes the following areas: energy, biotechnology, bioinformatics, coastal and environmental protection and restoration, maritime/naval engineering, information technology, etc. CERM bilding tenant collaborations have and are expanding existing industry/university alliances to enhance the research mission of UNO. The building provides a comprehensive facility dedicated to efficient, cost effective research and development collaborations with local, regional and national/international industries and companies.
Leasing space can range from single offices (for example, for a start-up or a “local starter office” for a company interested in developing research opportunities with UNO) to larger suites of offices. Prospective tenants must have, or expect to soon develop, appropriate relationships with UNO to qualify.
