University of Utah Research Park lies adjacent to campus on 320 acres of ancient Lake Bonneville shoreline. The Park houses companies and academic departments. A master plan has been developed with emphasis on preservation and enhancement of land contiguous to the University.
The Park provides a special environment for entrepreneurial growth. It is a reservoir of practical research and business opportunities for University faculty and both graduate and undergraduate students, giving new challenges and opportunities. These opportunities are created in a community that values technological innovation and commercial enterprise.
