    The University of Arkansas Innovation Center provides an environment that promotes specialized skill-training, education, research and technical support. Moreover, the Innovation Center provides office and laboratory space for technology-intensive companies, especially those graduating from the Genesis Technology Incubator (see profile), to co-locate with university faculty creating a highly interactive culture necessary for innovation. The Innovation Center will be the catalyst for the formation of a collaborative community of companies and faculty, linked interdependently in research and development focused on the following core competencies: next generation electronic and photonic devices; biotechnology and related chemical, biological and food sciences; transportation and logistics; materials and advanced manufacturing; database, software and telecommunications; and environmental and ecosystem analysis. The Innovation Center also serves as the home office of the University of Arkansas Technology Development Foundation (see profile), a university-affiliated, non-profit foundation that manages the ARTP and provides essential technology transfer functions to corporate partners.
