Science Park A group of scientific or technical knowledge based industries located on a single site. Business Park An area of land occupied by a cluster of businesses. They are usually located on the edge of cities because the land is cheaper, access to main roads is better and businesses can benefit form working together. In the UK, 85 per cent of science park tenants are companies with fewer than 50 people, according to UKSPA. About half the UK’s odd science parks are owned by or linked to universities.

4 The Current and Future Role of Technology and Innovation Centres in the UK Introduction The UK has a strong track record in science and innovation. It possesses four of the world’s top six universities1, and a research base that is now second only to the US in the G8 group of countries for excellence, producing 12% of all. Franceâ s central government, like that of Japan, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, has actively fostered the creation of science parks (Westhead , Hilpert and Ruffieux , Goldstein and Luger ), and Germany has long promoted academic innovation centres to incubate and develop small- and medium-sized enterprises (Sternberg ).

A science park is a purpose-built cluster of office spaces, labs, workrooms, and meeting areas designed to support research and development in science and tech.

Let's take a look at the UK's 6 best Science Parks for startups. England South West. Bristol and Bath Science Park — Emersons Green, l; Plymouth Science Park — Plymouth; Tetricus BioIncubator — Porton Down Science Park, Salisbury; University of Bristol SETsquared Centre — Bristol; Exeter Science Park — Exeter; Winfrith Technology Centre — Winfrith, Dorset; Electronics & Photonics Innovation Centre (EPIC) — Whiterock, Paignton, Devon.

A science park (also called a "university research park", "technology park”, “technopole", or a "science and technology park" (STP)) is defined as being a property-based development that accommodates and fosters the growth of tenant firms and that is affiliated with a university (or a government and private research bodies) based on proximity, ownership, and/or governance.

Other UK science parks. Although the above covers a wide range of companies and science parks operating within the south of the UK, this list is far from exhaustive.

These normally include very close working relationships with local universities. Sometimes these parks – or individual buildings – are called ‘technology hubs’, ‘innovation centres’, ‘knowledge gateways’ or ‘enterprise catalysts’; each new science park seems to invent a new name to distinguish it from its predecessors.

The symbiotic relationship between research parks and the surrounding region is crucial to the innovation ecosystem. Branscomb pointed out that not only is localization of a park going to happen, it is necessary for successful development. Research parks generally focus on working with existing companies rather than nurturing start-ups.

The UK’s largest portfolio of privately owned science parks has been bought by a US private equity company in a deal signalling renewed investor confidence in the UK science and technology sector. Science Parks and Technological Innovation by R. VAN DIEWBONCK and K. DEBACKERE* I. INTRODUCTION Science parks have become a common phenomenon at many western universities.

At the heart of the science park movement was the belief that science parks would act as nuclei of regional technical entrepre- neurship.Role of Science Parks Science parks can contribute to the economic growth of an area by increasing the level of economic activity and the productivity of the companies once they have moved into that area.

Due to the recognised positive effects of science parks, their number in the UK has increased from just 2 in to over in   Over the last 50 years the success of science parks in the UK has largely been achieved through geographic aggregation of talent often with a sector focus; creating hot-spots of critical mass, which stimulate and accelerate innovation.

This model now faces historically unique drivers of change.
