The Florida Innovation Hub at UF is the first building located in Innovation Square. Described as a 24/7 live/work/play urban research park environment, Innovation Square is a development that brings together science and technology, business opportunities, and retail and residential space in one location. A true communitywide venture, it will bridge the University of Florida campus with downtown Gainesville, Florida, and redefine the notion of a town square.
One of the nation’s five largest universities, the University of Florida is a major, public land-grant research institution with a proven track record of transferring technology to the marketplace.
