What is a Research Park/Innovation District?

University research parks are physical environments that can generate, attract and retain science and technology companies and talent in alignment with sponsoring research institutions that include, universities, as well as public, private and federal research laboratories. Research parks enable the flow of ideas between innovation generators such as, universities, federal labs, and non-profit R&D institutions and companies located in both the research park and the surrounding region.
