MILWAUKEE (AP) - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is set to officially open its new five-story, $80 million research center.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1MTQjhj ) reports the Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Complex is the first new academic building on the east side campus in more than 20 years. Faculty and students have already moved in, and the public will be welcomed inside Friday before the installation of Mark Mone as university chancellor.

The new research center has a two-story atrium and overlooks a green space that is the future home of the school’s welcome center and an entrepreneurship center.

The university hopes it will compete for bigger national science grants with the new research center, where collaboration can take place between researchers in different science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.
