Yesterday Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation and academic partners Pratt Institute and New York City College of Technology (City Tech) announced the Research Yard, an advanced research and applied learning facility based in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The idea began with “Pratt Research Yard”, a shared research facility between Pratt faculty, Brooklyn Navy Yard, and the community, and evolved into a public/private partnership with both Pratt Institute and City Tech, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The open-plan space will house new lab and office space to help develop solutions for real-world problems locally and globally.
