Venue: Universitas Airlangga, Gubeng, Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia
The first science park was established in 1970 by the University of Cambridge to facilitate the sharing of knowledge between the industry, academia and the government. Science parks play a key role in attracting talent to bring forward technological advancement and innovation. It is an effective medium to attract entrepreneurs in desirable science and tech industries by providing high quality working space with a chance to work in close collaboration with the industry.
At a Science and Technology Park, businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs have access to purpose built office spaces, laboratories and meeting areas designed to facilitate research in growth in various fields of science and technology. These parks are managed by trained professionals who stimulate and coordinate the flow of technology and knowledge among the universities, research and innovation institutions, and manage the park facilities. These technology parks have proven to be the bridge between converting innovative ideas into commercial products and services.
OIC – COMSTECH and Universitas Airlangga, Indonesia, in collaboration with Pardis Technology Park, Iran are organizing an international training workshop on “Managing Science and Technology Parks”. This workshop will analyze the path of development of an idea into a commercial product along with discussing the different models of accelerators, incubation centers and technology parks.
