Center of Innovation

University City is home to some of the nation’s top universities, hospitals and research facilities. Great minds from across the world are drawn to University City, creating a wealth of science, medical, and informational resources. These eminent minds and institutions are part of what make University City a unique and incredibly innovative place to live and work. UCD has tapped into this abundance of resources, creating an Innovation Collaborative that involves and enlists the many assets of University City to better their neighborhood.
