Who are we?

The Southwest Innovation Alliance (SWIA) was established in January 2022 as a center within the Office of Research at New Mexico Tech. It is focused on supporting tech transfer and STEM outreach collaborations between academia, government, industry, and the community.

The Alliance is based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico with collaborations in New Mexico, Texas, and California. A key partner of the Alliance is the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) through its Directed Energy Directorate and Space Vehicles Directorate located on Kirtland Air Force Base.

NMT is proud of its relationship with AFRL in New Mexico and has held a Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) with it since 1995.
