Sustainability and Innovation

Salah M. El-Haggar

American University in Cairo Press

This chapter deals with the main features of science and technology parks (STPs) in general, and science and technology parks for sustainable development (STPSDs) in particular. An STP is a cluster of technology-based organizations situated on or near a university campus in order to benefit from the university’s knowledge base and ongoing research, and to develop commercial applications for this knowledge in association with the commercial tenants in the park. STPSDs consist of a number of industrial clusters/complexes (incubators), where each cluster/complex will devote itself to a specific national problem according to the standards of sustainable development/sustainable economy. The discussions cover the objectives, benefits, and challenges of STPs; policies for development of STPs; models for STPs; examples of STPs; and STPs for sustainable development.

Keywords:   science and technology parks, sustainable development, university research, industrial clusters, industrial complexes
