In a potentially huge economic boon to the Bay area, USF has paired with SRI International, a leading scientific research institution, to create SRI Saint Petersburg. While SRI gets the expertise in "harsh environment" sensors developed at USF's Center for Ocean Technology, the deal could eventually bring almost two hundred million dollars and at least two hundred high-tech jobs to St. Pete.
