science park

  A particular form of growth pole established by property developers to promote technology transfer and investment in new industries, usually in conjunction with a higher education institution and sometimes with local governments also. The goal is to capitalize on the available local scientific and technological expertise by ensuring that innovations are developed locally, generating jobs for the local economy and contributing to the higher education institution\'s costs (see also seed bed location). (RJJ)
