The Missouri Research Park is the first business park in the St. Louis region to market exclusively to technology-intensive and research-based companies. The 200-acre research and development park has been a catalyst for development along the I-64 high-tech corridor in St. Charles County. Today, the park includes 15 companies and two federal agencies with more than 1.5 million square feet under roof and approximately 2,000 employees.
The Missouri Research Park is owned and managed by the University of Missouri. As an integral part of its land-grant mission, the University developed and manages not just the Missouri Research Park but several similar projects throughout the state with the intention of supporting Missouri’s economic growth by developing and sustaining research and technology alliances among the University, government agencies and private companies.
