About The Science Center

The University City Science Center is a dynamic hub for innovation, entrepreneurship and technology commercialization. For more than 50 years, we have helped scientists, entrepreneurs, startups, and growing and established companies throughout the Greater Philadelphia region as they move their technologies into the marketplace, where they can benefit the region and the world.

We accomplish this by offering a steady stream of networking, professional development, and entrepreneurial support programs designed to leverage the rich resources available on our campus and in the region.

Our 31 nonprofit shareholders include many of the leading colleges, universities, hospitals and research institutions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

Since we were founded in 1963, graduate organizations and current residents of the Science Center’s Port business incubator have created more than 15,000 direct jobs that remain in the region today.
