The Oxford Technology Park Joins The UK Science Park Association
The Oxford Technology Park joined UKSPA as a full member in October 2019, as a new Technology Park we feel is important to join the National Association for Science and Technology Parks in order to make the most of the advice and knowledge the organisation and its members have to offer at this early stage of the development. We are looking forward to all the events that are planned for 2020 plus learning from some of the more mature Parks in the country and accessing best practice reports. We see some challenges ahead and we know that being part of UKSPA will help us plan and overcome them a lot easier and quicker and it will give us a chance to showcase the development as it progresses in the next years to come.
UKSPA ’s mission is to support and encourage the growth of Science Parks, Innovation Centres and other Innovation locations. Through a programme of sharing good practice, networking, communication, research, promotion and advocacy UKSPA membership helps to sustain and develop this vital economic sector.
The UKSPA network of managers, developers, investors, owners and supporting businesses all share a common goal. This is to create a growing, effective Innovation sector with the right facilities, infrastructure, services and business growth activities for the 6,000 companies and other organisations that they support on a daily basis.
The Association represents, promotes and supports a diverse network of members that include research campuses, city-based innovation districts, technology incubators and innovation centres across the UK (and beyond). They operate in different areas, with different funding and investment profiles but together deliver enormous added value to companies that occupy space or participate ion member activities.
