UVA Research Park

Scroller - 02 - UVA ARI Building


he Applied Research Institute’s location allows for seamless connectivity between our academic, industry and government partners. In addition to its presence on the University of Virginia Central Grounds, ARI  has offices in the Emerging Technology Center at the UVA Research Park.

The Park, which was developed by the UVA Foundation, is a 562-acre, 3.7 million square-foot, fully master planned, mixed-use development zoned for office, light industry, laboratory/medical/pharmaceutical, and retail/support commercial uses.

Located in a beautiful rural setting just north of the UVA campus, the Park features mountain views, lakes, jogging trails, cafes and conference facilities.

Faculty in UVA’s Engineering School, School of Medicine, and the College of Arts and Sciences collaborate with Park tenants – including Northrop Grumman, SRC, TASC, Signature Science, and Battelle, among others – to work on projects related to undersea power units, cyber security, custom integrated circuits, scientometric analysis of scientific literature, bioinformatics and infectious disease. The Park is adjacent to the Joint Use Intelligence Analysis Facility at Rivanna Station, which houses the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC).
