If all goes as planned, in about a year downtown Statesboro should be home to a "fab lab" where cutting-edge technology such as 3-D printing will help birth not just new businesses, but new ideas. The fab lab and innovation incubator are core features of Georgia Southern University's expansion of its City Campus. This summer, the university, the city of Statesboro, the GSU Research and Service Foundation and the Statesboro Arts Council together applied for a $1 million U.S. Economic Development Administration grant for renovations to City Campus and Entrepreneur Zone buildings.
