Changing the paradigms l.jpg

Changing the paradigms

  • Industries focuse more and more on the core business

  • Research becomes more and more multi/cross disciplinary

  • Globalisation is today reality : markets, production sites, computing sites, development facilities, research

  • All dynamic regions are turning to innovation

    How can a Region bring a difference ?

  • By funding top research

  • By fostering a top educational system

  • By shortening the time lag between research and the market

  • Science parks are one of the catalyst to foster the future

Conclusion : Benchmarking on different levels

  • Benchmarking is useful in order to get ideas

  • Government, universities, sceince park can do it
