This annual event is a major networking event of Association, gathering an ever increasing number of delegates and speakers from all over the world.
The conference will bring together experts from science and technology parks (STPs) and other areas of innovation (AIs), technology-based incubators, academia, the public sector and business to discuss and debate in depth the trends in STPs and other areas of innovation as increasingly complex structures for professional innovation support.
The programme will be divided into a variety of sessions – retaining both the traditional plenary and parallel sessions on specific topics, as well as more innovative formats – to encourage a more dynamic knowledge exchange. The format of sessions will only be determined after the paper review and authors are invited to choose from a range of topics to submit their abstracts.
All conference sessions will be related to the overall theme for the 2016 IASP World Conference, which has been set as: “The Global Mind – linking innovation communities for internationalisation, sustainability and growth.”
