The Florida Tech Research Park, a partnership of Florida Tech and Melbourne International Airport, held its grand opening on April 26 at its new location on airport property. The research park, a self-sustaining innovation center, focuses on facilitating the creation, integration and application of technology for the region.
The park, now on NASA Boulevard, continues to welcome tenants. Most recently Archo Solutions Engineering USA, of Sao Paolo, Brazil, and not long ago, Revolution Technologies moved in. The research park offers major business incentives, convenient support services and amenities, a strong university partnership and a substantial research base.
“It’s known that research parks create jobs and economic growth. I am very pleased that Florida Tech is in a position to make such an impact here in our community,” said President and CEO Anthony J. Catanese.
