Robots navigate obstacle courses and autonomous vehicles learn how to drive at the Nevada Center for Applied Research at the University of Nevada, Reno. And, that’s what’s happening in only one room of the three-story building. On the other floors, startups and other companies can access the physical and intellectual assets of the university to do groundbreaking research and create life-saving innovations.

Located in the Applied Research Facility on UNR’s campus, the Nevada Center for Applied Research is a best-in-class, stand-alone, fully-functional applied research and development technology center. At NCAR, entrepreneurs or other businesses can work with laboratories, testing centers, equipment and expertise that might otherwise be too expensive or difficult to access. The center helps industry, startup companies, researchers and entrepreneurs access the broad range of technical services, intellectual capital, testing and research capabilities, advanced tools and methodologies at UNR.

NCAR focuses on three main areas of development, including robotics, life sciences, and advanced manufacturing. It offers a variety of laboratories and testing facilities, such as an autonomous robots arena, share wet lab incubation space for biotech startups, and a user-centered, open-innovation living lab ecosystem for autonomous and connected vehicles in Northern Nevada.

Experience this innovative facility for yourself at Tech Wednesday on Oct. 10.
