Knowledge Enterprise impact in 2021

At Knowledge Enterprise, the research and innovation engine of Arizona State University, our ambition is nothing less than changing the way the world solves problems. How do we accomplish this lofty objective?

Through powerful partnerships. In 2021, ASU joined forces with Blue Origin and other space industry leaders to create a business park in orbit by the end of this decade.

Through innovation. An ASU researcher developed MechanicalTreesTM that literally pull carbon dioxide out of the air. The first one will be installed on ASU’s Tempe campus in 2022.

Through our commitment to the community. ASU developed enough COVID-19 saliva tests to administer to 1 in 7 Arizonans, processing its 1 millionth test in October 2021.

Explore these achievements and others in our 2021 highlights.
