The University of Tennessee Research Park at Cherokee Farm is a research and development park that gives businesses access to the most powerful tools available in materials science and high-performance computing, along with the internationally renowned researchers at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Parcels are available for immediate development, and build-to-suit space is available in the Innovation North building.
“We are in the business of making curated collisions occur,” Rogers explains. Those clearly lead to success on both aspects of his vision for the park – serving as a gateway for collaborations between the private sector and UT and making sure that “this incredible piece of property meets its full potential as a community asset.”
Knoxville-based news outlet Compass Knox featured UT Research Park in a recent story about UT Knoxville professor Kandace Hollenbach and her summer anthropology mini-term students’ research findings.
Slowly but steadily working their ways centimeter by centimeter down through the dirt and clay, UT Knoxville students unearthed pottery sherds, burned bones and mussel shells along with rocks fractured by cooking fires.
