The 'Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center', known locally as the 'Corporate Research Center' or the 'CRC' or 'VTCRC', is a science park on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, Virginia comprising 33 completed buildings on 230 acres (0.93 km2) of land. The CRC is located adjacent to the Virginia Tech Airport.

Nestled in the heart of Virginia’s Technology Corridor and adjacent to the Virginia Tech (VT) campus, the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center (VTCRC) is home to over 170 research, technology and support companies. Our 230-acre park is located in a beautiful mountain setting, with easy access to the metropolitan areas of northern Virginia and the nation’s capital. An expansion on the northwest side of the park provides enough land to construct 15 buildings in addition to the 33 single- and multi-tenant buildings currently on-site. The VTCRC employs over 2,900 employees. [1]
