Expert Group Meeting on Science and Technology Parks

18 Dec 2018 to 19 Dec 2018
Bangkok, Thailand

Science and technology parks can serve as useful vehicles for innovation and growth of start-ups. However, effective development and management of these parks is not always easy. Among many questions, what policies should be put in place to facilitate development of science and technology parks? In an era of digital connectivity, how should science and technology parks adjust themselves to embrace new opportunities and challenges?

United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has carried out research on development of science and technology parks. It is expected that the outcome of the research will assist the countries in Asia and the Pacific to successfully develop and manage science and technology parks.

The preliminary findings of the research will be presented at the workshop. The invited experts will share their expertise to make this research output more relevant.
