Mount Ida Innovation and Collaboration Space. The Mount Ida campus of UMass Amherst is a hub for innovation, connecting research and industry. It was established by UMass Amherst and the UMass Innovation Institute (UMII) to connect early-stage companies with our campus, the Commonwealth’s largest public research university. The collaborative workspace is also open for use by UMass Amherst departments that have a need for office or touchdown space in the Boston area. For more info, contact email@example.com.
