About the Park
The USA Technology and Research Park (the “Park”), launched in April 2002, is a major economic initiative of the University of South Alabama. It marries University resources with innovative enterprises in a single location that broadens educational experiences for students, generates new research opportunities for faculty and offers growth prospects for industry.
The Park, on 160 acres just north of the main University campus, is a focal point of economic growth for Mobile and the Upper Gulf Coast. The Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce named the University of South Alabama its 2002 “Innovator of the Year” in recognition of the Park’s initiative.Connect - Collaborate - Innovate
