Cutting Edge Science

The largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world is headquartered at Florida State University in Innovation Park.

The MagLab is home to dozens of magnets — many of them one-of-kind instruments or world-record holders — helping researchers define the properties of new materials, find energy solutions, and illuminate the mechanisms that underlie life itself.

Innovation Park is a global hotspot for energy, aero-propulsion, advanced power systems, superconductivity, and high performance materials. Several research institutes in the Park are leaders in their industry with state-of-the-art equipment that most other research institutes don’t have access to.

Why is Innovation Park the right place for your business?
