As the capital of the third-largest state in the U.S., Tallahassee is home to Innovation Park, a global hotspot for energy, aero-propulsion, advanced power systems, superconductivity, and high-performance materials. .
Innovation Park is also home to the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory – the “MagLab” – the largest and highest-powered magnet lab in the world. The MagLab features dozens of magnets – many of them are one-of-a-kind instruments or world-record holders – that help researchers define the properties of new materials, find energy solutions, and illuminate mechanisms that underlie life itself.
The Leon County Research and Development Authority, which governs and oversees Innovation Park, works to develop facilities, technology, and equipment to offer to entrepreneurs at affordable fees. The LCRDA also develops and facilitates technology-focused programs, establishes partnerships and mentors, and organizes events to provide entrepreneurs with the best possible chance of success in our community and beyond. The LCRDA Board of Governors believes helping their neighbors can spur economic development and civic leadership.
