“Innovation Districts” are defined by The Brookings Institute as “geographic areas where leading-edge anchor institutions and companies cluster and connect with start-ups, business incubators and accelerators. Often times, they are also physically compact, transit-accessible, and technically-wired and offer mixed-use housing, office, and retail.”
Innovation districts at the U
Widely recognized as one of the most important economic opportunities in Utah's history, The Point consists of 600 acres of state-owned land that will be built into Utah’s innovation ecosystem. The new community will foster innovation and technological advancement, provide parks and open space, support economic growth and enhance Utahns’ quality of life.
The Point and Research Park at the U are just two of several innovation districts in Utah that help shape the state’s innovation economy by providing a junction of economic, physical, and networking assets.
