Technology Park Network

What is a Technology Park?

Through prformofessional, specialized management, Technology Parks produce interaction and collaboration processes among its members, in which companies benefit from the talent and resources of organizations that generate knowledge, unveiling opportunities for new high added-value businesses and facilitating the marketing of new technologies. With these characteristics, the Parks are closely related to universities, which is why the majority of Parks in the world form part of a university or at least maintain strong ties with these institutions.

Technology Parks have a variety of names around the world (Science, Innovation, Research Parks, etc.) and have become a rapidly growing phenomenon over the past 20 years. Their establishment has had a positive impact on the development of knowledge-based economies, which is consistent with their fundamental purpose: to increase the wealth of their community, contributing to introducing high added-value companies into the region. Moreover, they are significantly different from industrial parks since they do not allow mass production activities (manufacturing) or real-estate businesses.

Technology Park Models

Considering the natural, economic, demographic, political, and social characteristics of each region, Tecnológico de Monterrey has developed four models for the country’s reality and conditions. These models are based on the best practices from around the world, but have been meticulously adapted to the Mexican reality.

Model I

Technology Parks for high-value employment: These Technology Parks have been created to house companies that seek human resources for high-value activities, and whose primary activities do not involve science and technology. They offer a good means for providing specialized talent to technology companies in a setting close to the university. Instant feedback from companies is required to enrich the educational model and, consequently, improve the graduate profile.

Model II

Technology Parks for the attraction and development of companies: These Parks are mainly combinations of high-tech incubators (to promote start-ups) and "landing" centers to accommodate foreign technology companies that wish to start operating in the region. The Parks rely heavily on consulting services, technology management, networks and specialized exchange with universities’ R&D capacities to support the companies. These centers do not include R&D activities, although they do provide a group of highly trained technology managers and brokers.

Model III

Technology Parks for companies with scientific activities: Model III and Model II have similar characteristics, but the former includes specialized laboratories that meet the needs of highly sophisticated companies, in sectors such as biotechnology or nanotechnology, where companies require laboratories instantly and constantly.

Model IV

Regional Technology Parks with several sponsors: These Parks belong to the most widely known model of science and technology parks in the world, built on large areas of land, with an infrastructure similar to that of a university campus, where various R&D centers, universities, companies and services share spaces and foster relationships. They are mainly regional projects financed by governments, given their enormous cost and scope. 

Having consistent and effective projects requires the identification of a valid, solid purpose that unquestionably justifies the establishment of a Technology Park in each particular region.
