University research park directors, planners, builders, scientists and innovators from around the globe will gather in person and virtually Oct. 18-21 in Salt Lake City to learning best practices on creating, growing and sustaining communities of innovation.

“Utah, with its entrepreneurial spirit, world-class universities and award-winning research parks, is a perfect venue to explore these ideas,” said a press release from the University of Utah Research Park.

With the annual Silicon Slopes Summit providing a look at tech startups and innovation the week before, the Association of University Research Parks’ (AURP) International Conference will be a key opportunity to highlight the great strides Utah continues to make in building an international tech community through research parks, innovation districts, accelerators and incubators, according to Utah technology industry officials.  

The University of Utah and its Research Park (which won the AURP Research Park of the Year in 2020) will host the conference.
