36TH IASP WORLD CONFERENCE The 4th Industrial Revolution: areas of innovation and science parks as key boosters for a successful transition NANTES 24 - 27 SEPTEMBER 2019

Pre-Conference Seminar

the Fundamentals of Science Park and Area of Innovation Management






The IASP Pre-Conference Seminar is one-day event especially aimed at newcomers to our industry, and managers whose science parks/areas of innovation are still under planning and construction.

Organised directly by the IASP Headquarters, the seminar is designed to meet the needs of professionals who are appointed to set up a new science park, as well as for those who are new to our industry. It will look at the crucial main concepts in the inception, conceptualisation, planning and management of science parks and other areas of innovation: strategic models, incubation, marketing and communication, services, governance, challenges and opportunities.


Experienced STP/AOI managers and experts from the IASP network will share their knowledge with you, discuss what worked and what didn’t, and answer your questions. Their vast experience will allow you to shorten your learning curve and will give you new insights for your everyday work.


The IASP Pre-conference Seminar is the perfect chance to meet international colleagues facing the same problems and challenges, and networking in a smaller forum prior to our big event.
