Research center

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A research center (also known as research group) is a facility or building dedicated to research, commonly with the focus on a specific area. There are over 14,000 research centers in the United States.[1] Centers apply varied disciplines including basic research and applied research in addition to non traditional techniques. However, a research center should not be confused with a research institute. Additionally, today many universities are establishing research centers to conduct a specific research or education activity. Over a hundred of research centers can be established in one university. This number certainly differs from a university to a university, but most of the research centers there do bring something to the scientific table.
