North­eastern Uni­ver­sity and Rogers Corp. on Tuesday offi­cially launched the Rogers Inno­va­tion Center in Burlington, a 4,000-square-foot space housed within the George J. Kostas Research Insti­tute for Home­land Security.

The Rogers Inno­va­tion Center is a joint part­ner­ship with between spe­cialty mate­rials man­u­fac­turer Rogers Corp., based in Con­necticut, and North­eastern Uni­ver­sity. The new space, on the second floor of the 70,000-square-foot Kostas Research Insti­tute, includes lab­o­ra­to­ries, meeting space and office space for Rogers’ per­sonnel, said David Luzzi, exec­u­tive director of the strategic secu­rity ini­tia­tive at North­eastern University.

Rogers Corp., North­eastern and others – for example, the U.S. Army – have invested about $10 mil­lion so far in the Rogers Inno­va­tion Center, Luzzi said. That amount reflects the cost to build-​​out the second floor space, out­fit­ting it with equip­ment and the like, and also the invest­ment in ini­tial research projects.
