The mission of the N.C. Office of Science & Technology is to improve the economic well‐being and quality of life of all North Carolinians through advancing science, technology, and innovation.
To achieve this mission, the Office develops and administers policies and programs that accelerate both the development of next-generation technology companies and the adoption of technology across existing industry. Working with organizations across the state, it identifies and communicates emerging opportunities in science and technology and prepares and publishes analyses outlining the competitive position of North Carolina’s businesses and research institutions in these areas.
