NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The New Mexico Economic Development Department (EDD) announced on Tuesday the expansion of the science and technology office.

The newly expanded Office of Strategy, Science & Technology (OSST), previously the Office of Science & Technology, will continue to focus and expand support for innovation and commercialization of science and technology along with including entrepreneurship support and federal funding opportunities.

“With support from Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and the Legislature, the Economic Development Department will be expanding the Office of Strategy, Science & Technology to provide additional support to entrepreneurs and businesses, furthering the department’s mission of improving the lives of New Mexico families by increasing economic opportunity, building wealth, and providing a place for businesses to thrive,” EDD Deputy Secretary Jon Clark said.

As part of the Office’s expansion, the department will establish an accompanying Office of Entrepreneurship, for which EDD is currently hiring a coordinator.
