Living lab & Fab lab activities

Does your park/area of innovation include/organise/is part of any form of living lab or fab lab activities? 


From the results to this question, it can be seen that these activities are quite evenly spread, with 25% having living labs, an equal part (25%) have fab labs with almost the same amount of responses (20%) stating that they are involved in both living lab and fab lab activities. However, a slightly higher proportion, 30% responded that they were involved in neither.

Community managers in STPs

Text:

In August we asked: does your park have a "community manager" or similar role (someone in charge of managing the presence of your park in social networks such as Linkedln, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)?

A significant majority of respondents (61%) stated that they employ a community manager on a full time basis. The next biggest category, gathering 26% of those who answered the question, replied saying that they only employ a part time community manager.  The results show that 7% outsource this role and just 6% of the respondents don’t have a community manager at all.

Public Transportation Vs Private

Text:

What proportion of workers in your STP/AOI use public transport to get to work?

Following last month's question about private vehicles, this month we see that 35% of respondents tell us that fewer than 10% of their workers use public transport to get to work. 25% of parks say that 11-30% of staff use public transport, with 15% telling us that 31-50% use public transport. 20% of STPs who replied say that 51-70% use public transport, and 5% of parks have no public transport available.

Parking space is becoming an increasing concern of many STPs, and the importance of alternative transportation options is therefore growing. How many private vehicles enter your science park each day?
