Our Programs: AN INNOVATION CATALYST
The Utah Science Technology and Research (USTAR) Initiative supports an ecosystem where world-class researchers and innovators can access state-of-the-art research and development facilities at Utah’s leading educational institutions. These multidisciplinary facilities provide the equipment and human capital they need to create products and services, collaborate with industry, and develop and commercialize new technologies.
USTAR’s satellite offices are designed as resources to assist innovators and entrepreneurs, connecting them with resources across the state that offer incubation, acceleration, and other training or services that they need to flourish as a new business. They also connect them with investors across the state, helping maximize business potential.
USTAR is a catalyst for creating new and advanced technology and science companies, bolstering the economy and keeping the state vibrant and competitive.
