40th IASP World Conference on Science Parks and Areas of Innovation
The 40th IASP World Conference on Science Parks and Areas of Innovation will take place in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, hosted by our colleagues at Technoport. Join us there from 12-15 September 2023 to explore "Megatrends in Innovation Ecosystems: What are the impacts for STPs & AOIs?"
Megatrends are defined as long-term driving forces that are observable now, can be experienced by anyone despite regional differences, and will most likely have a global impact.They tend to be stable over at least two decades, and robust to temporary setbacks. Examples of such setbacks can be global pandemics or energy and food crises as we recently experienced.
Using the notion of megatrends and possible futures when designing, implementing and redefining STPs/AOIs and other global innovation ecosystems is key to future-proofing and ensuring our industry remains at the cutting edge of developing trends. STPs/AOIs around the world each operate in their own local context and within their own regional innovation ecosystem, but they are increasingly connected and they all face the same global megatrends. IASP Luxembourg will consider questions of how they and their resident organisations are impacted by these megatrends; how they work with them and handle them, and the role they can play in shaping or influencing them.
The Call for Contributions is now open: download it below, and submit a paper proposal by February 10th for your chance to speak!
