The 40th IASP World Conference on Science Parks and Areas of Innovation is set to take place in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, hosted by Technoport. From September 12-15, 2023, industry leaders, practitioners, and innovators will gather to delve into the theme of “Megatrends in Innovation Ecosystems: What are the impacts for STPs & AOIs?” This conference will provide a platform for in-depth discussions on the global megatrends shaping the future of science parks and areas of innovation.
Megatrends, as long-term driving forces with observable impacts and global significance, are at the forefront of the conference agenda. These trends remain stable over extended periods, enabling the industry to adapt and thrive amidst temporary setbacks such as pandemics or crises.
Recognizing the importance of megatrends in designing, implementing, and redefining innovation ecosystems, the conference aims to equip participants with the tools to future-proof their organizations and stay at the cutting edge of emerging trends.
While science parks and areas of innovation operate within their unique local and regional contexts, they are increasingly interconnected and share common challenges presented by global megatrends.
IASP Luxembourg will explore how these megatrends impact their resident organizations, how they navigate and respond to them, and the role they can play in shaping or influencing these transformative forces. By addressing these questions, the conference seeks to foster resilience, sustainability, and strategic growth within the industry.
