The Sharjah Research, Technology & Innovation Park (SRTI Park)

As the American University of Sharjah (AUS) is transforming into a comprehensive research university, AUS Enterprises LLC (AUSE) is developing the Sharjah Research Technology and Innovation (SRTI) Park as a free trade zone on the 175-hectare parcel of land immediately west of the University City.

The park was established to bring academia and industry together in collaborative ventures. It will encourage the creation of knowledge-intensive companies and provide a state-of-the-art location for businesses and organizations to access research undertaken at AUS.

Phase 1 of the park is due for completion in 2019 and will comprise three inter-linked buildings of some 60,000 square feet that will house the park’s headquarters, laboratories and innovation centers. Future phases include a center of excellence, a technology museum, a hotel and convention center, and housing units.
