91 Technology Drive, Anderson, SC 29625
The Innovation Campus and Technology Park in Anderson is home to facilities such as Clemson's Advanced Materials Research Laboratory (AMRL), a state-of- the-art facility that houses internationally recognized research programs in optoelectronics, chemistry and materials science. It also houses one of the nation's most outstanding electron microscopy facilities and a professional staff that provides services to private industry and academic clients. The National Brick Research Center, CCIT (Clemson Computing and Information Technology) and the department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (EEES) also have offices located on the campus.
Clemson University is a leader in advanced materials research, which accounts for almost 30 percent of the University's total research funding. Clemson has a significant track record as a resource for the advanced materials industry, with 14 startup companies and landing parties based on Clemson advanced materials expertise and more than 70 advanced-materials-based technologies available for licensing. One particular advantage for recruiting businesses to the research campus is the 43,000-square-foot Duke Energy Innovation Center that provides business incubation space. The Duke Energy Innovation Center, which is a joint project of Clemson University and the South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA), is immediately adjacent to the AMRL.
