Triangle Explained

Record #:
The Research triangle of North Carolina, an area surrounded by Duke, UNC Chapel Hill, and NC State, is a 5,000 acre industrial complex specifically constructed for applied scientific research. Funded by federal agencies, private corporations, foundations, and research contracts, the Research Triangle is staffed by top scientists from the United States as well as foreign countries, all of whom have experience in industry, education, and government. A joint effort on behalf of Governor Luther H. Hodges and textile tycoon, Karl Robbins, the Research triangle has transitioned from an initial land acquisition into a non-profit scientific powerhouse that continues to attract new investors and industries.
