Realising the Innovation Potential of the United Kingdom Science and Technology Parks
Over the past two years, the UKSTP Survey has been collecting a unique body of insight about the business practices of onsite SMEs located in the United Kingdom Science and Technology Parks. In September, we will launch the results from the first instalment of the UKSTP survey, based on responses from the UKSTP2015 survey participants. We will be at:
European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management`s Conference on Intangibles, Intellectual Capital and Extra-Financial Information, [Russia`s] National Research University Higher School of Economics St. Petersburg, Russia, September 22-23, 2016.
RENT XXX, (European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management`s Conference Research in Entrepreneurship and Small Business), University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium, November 16-18, 2016.
The results will echo what we are learning from the onsite SMEs in the United Kingdom: Open Innovation practices, Intellectual Capital Management activities, Appropriability Strategies and General Businesses processes.

Announcement of The United Kingdom Science & Technology Parks Survey 2015 (UKSTP 2015)
Aston Business School is announcing the launch of a survey of companies located in science and technology parks in the United Kingdom on current business practices. The first phase of this study (UKSTP2015: Ecosystems and co-evolution) focuses on the ways in which the living life of science and technology park ecosystems orchestrates tenants’ management insight and strategic foresight.
The survey will ask questions about on-site companies' current open innovation activities. Participation in the survey is voluntary, and by invitation.
Respondents will receive a paper copy of the survey which they can fill out and return to the Economics, Finance & Entrepreneurship Group (EF&E), or alternatively respondents can answer the survey's questions online. The survey will contact on-site firms across all industries and is designed to solicit responses from employers of all sizes. The surveys will be mailed to companies beginning on June 1, and the UKSTP team expects the data collection phase to be completed by mid-October.
The formal name of the survey is "United Kingdom Science and Technology Parks Survey (UKSTP Survey)".
