Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the world’s largest, oldest and most comprehensive institution specializing in aviation, aerospace, engineering and related degree programs. A fully accredited university, Embry-Riddle is also a major research center, seeking solutions to real-world problems in partnership with the aerospace industry, other universities and government agencies. The John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex (MicaPlex) – the cornerstone building of the Embry-Riddle Research Park – serves as a unique, 50,000-square-foot, cutting-edge innovation hub. Soon to be combined with a world-class subsonic wind tunnel facility, the MicaPlex supports collaborative research related to aviation, space, engineering, unmanned systems, the environment, and much more. Embry-Riddle’s Research Park offers a unique collaborative opportunity for business and the university community to develop, refine and bring new products and technological services to market. Start-up companies have a tremendous advantage when there is a network of support to shepherd them through the stages of product/service development toward market readiness. As an incubator space, the facilities and occupants of the MicaPlex will provide such a network which extends to the University, not only at the Daytona Beach Campus, but to resources on the Prescott, Arizona, campus and the extensive network that is the Worldwide Campus.
