These provide a variety of space and shared services for corporate R&D work, academic technology transfer, venture capital support, and the collaborative development and commercialization of intellectual property.

AURP - Association of University Research Parks - Reston, Virginia - promotes and supports the development and operation of university research parks worldwide; organizes an annual (September 21-24, 2005, Raleigh North Carolina) and winter (January) conference, as well as the BioParks conference which coincides with the BIO association trade show event for the biotechnology and life sciences industry.  The AURP 2005 BioParks conference. "Partnering Within A Region", is in Philadelphia PA on June 17-18 with Bio 2005 Philadelphia and the Council of Biotechnology Centers.  AURP also publishes a directory for members only which profiles many North American science parks in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. www.aurp.net   703-234-488

See also business incubators and cluster development initiatives, below.  There are various definitions of science and technology parks.  Some are basically real estate developments such as high-spec office parks which attract technology companies, while others are designed and managed to encourage collaborative research and development activities and technology transfer with local universities and other park tenants, including shared access to specialized research laboratories and equipment.

We do not attempt to differentiate in this directory, unless such organizations choose to participate in our work to highlight their capabilities and what differentiates their park, or to help promote it.  Their websites should readily identify what makes each unique. 

We are just trying to make it easier to find such potential business locations and contacts whenever they may be relevant to the corporate executives and advisors we serve.

We also provide directories of links to local economic development organizations and professional service providers, including corporate real estate firms, intellectual property lawyers, venture capital firms and others who may have knowledge of such technology centers and what distinguishes them in practice from the perspective of a potential corporate investor (our focus).

Business incubators and industry sector or regional technology cluster development initiatives, such as for life sciences, biotechnology, or other high technology industries Website Contact Phone
Although some science and technology or research parks include business incubator and technology transfer services, or "business accelerators" and regional technology innovation centers, the above list of parks will generally be larger developments involving many corporate facilities, while incubators may be a single facility shared by many small, entrepreneurial start-up ventures.

These may offer more intensive support services to help such ventures develop and minimize costs during the start-up process for research and early stage development and product launch phases.  We list them with technology development initiatives such as local business cluster development programs.  Additional local economic development organizations and services which may support new ventures in their areas are listed separately.
