The Arkansas Research and Technology Park serves as a bridge between the commercial interests of its corporate partners and the considerable resources available through the University of Arkansas. Corporate partners of the ARTP benefit from access to a rich pool of talent, new knowledge and innovative technology which translates to a competitive advantage. Equally important, the ARTP is able to support the competitive position of firms by enabling companies to produce higher-quality, lower-cost products and implement more efficient processes through the application of University expertise and developed technologies. In that regard, ARTP staff assist companies in identifying and accessing University of Arkansas faculty expertise and research centers, in order to foster
University-industry research partnerships. Personal attention is given to company representatives to assess their technical needs and facilitate linkages to appropriate University of Arkansas resources.
