Senator Udall recently visited ATA as part of his Albuquerque and Northern New Mexico tour. Udall’s message was clear, New Mexico needs to work together to build on its economic strengths and create jobs. Udall’s visit was focused on continuing to develop a bill to expand technology transfer and help entrepreneurs build businesses based on research developed at the national labs. The ATA visit also aligns with the “Institutes for Manufacturing Innovation” effort that is focused on optics and photonics. The manufacturing effort could attract over $1.3 billion in federal economic development investment to New Mexico.
