IT and Telecommunications: The first IBM personal computers were designed and manufactured in Palm Beach County, and its technology core has remained strong ever since. Today, technology and telecommunica- tions businesses located in the county run the gamut of specializations, providing every kind of software and hardware, security and storage, wireless communication and high-speed global networks. Latin American and Caribbean tele- communications service businesses are also achieving success in South Florida. Life Sciences: Palm Beach County is the core of the basic biomedical research commu- nity in Florida. Both County and Municipal governments in Palm Beach County support the development of the life sciences industry, as shown by the investment made by the Palm Beach Board of County Commissioners in Scripps Florida and Max Planck Florida Insti- tute for Neuroscience. The State of Florida and Florida Atlantic University have partnered with the Board of County Commissioners to attract these two world renowned research institutes that now have state-of-the-art facil- ities on FAU's Jupiter campus. Furthermore, several municipalities and Palm Beach County have adopted expedited permitting initia- tives for life sciences companies and other targeted industry companies. Florida Atlantic University has been classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a "Research University-High Research Activity" institution.
