Research Park (2020 W/ Vision Plan)



The University of Utah Research Park is located on the campus of the University of Utah. Established in 1968, Research Park was intended to stimulate economic development within the State of Utah and encourage graduates from the University of Utah to stay in Salt Lake City by providing convenient access to research jobs. The university has helped to produce multiple businesses from the work of University students and researchers. Research Park currently has 48 companies along with 81 university departments with a workforce of more than 14,000.

A world-class collaborative life science lab.Not just an incubator.

Our Vision for the Future

The 50-year Vision Plan lays out a conceptual framework for future transformation of the Research Park in three major categories: Ecological Framework, Connective Network, and Innovation Ecosystem. This conceptual framework includes actions designed to yield the highest quality sustainable urban development that delivers a unique identity, fosters creativity, encourages cross-pollination among innovators, and creates a strong sense of place.
