ABOUT EIC PITTSBURGH
The mission of the Energy Innovation Center is to contribute to socially responsible workforce development, foster energy and sustainable technology advancement, and assist in job creation through a commitment to diversity, innovation and comprehensive education.
Designed and equipped by corporate partners, this 6.6 acre urban complex will promote energy-sector research and innovation and create direct and deliberate bridges to job creation, entrepreneurship and urban economic revitalization. It is positioned in the heart of a historic neighborhood that is sandwiched between the downtown central business district and the campuses of the region’s major research universities. Because the Hill District has suffered more than fifty years of economic disenfranchisement, community partners are working to ensure that this Energy Innovation Center will become an instrument of urban economic revitalization.
