The aim of Auburn Research and Technology Foundation is to support the Auburn University research and economic development mission by translating applied research into new business ventures, nurturing these businesses, and providing an entrepreneurial business environment for them to prosper.

Auburn Research Park

OVERVIEW OF THE RESEARCH PARK

On 171 acres, the Auburn Research Park is the south gateway to the Auburn University campus in Auburn, Alabama. The result of a partnership between the State of Alabama, City of Auburn, and Auburn University, the vision for the research park is that over the next 10-12 years it will develop into a mixed-use, entrepreneurial research and business campus focusing on technology/knowledge-based businesses, research centers, and university research facilities in approximately 15 buildings totaling 750,000 to 1,000,000 square feet. In addition, support businesses such as law and accounting firms, bank (branch), hotel, restaurant and/or coffee shop, etc. will locate in the park. In addition to the landscaping at the park entrance and around buildings, the park will be further developed into an esthetically beautiful campus taking advantage of the existing lakes and forests.
