Selected Areas
  • Petrochemical Industry
  • Hydrology
  • Information Technology
  • Communication
  • Petroleum Industry

4
Science Park development is part of a global
rethinking of the role of higher education in a
society ( linkage to S.D. )

What is a Science Park?
  • It is a medium in which collaboration
    between universities and industrial
    research centers flourishes, leading to
    regional and national economic growth.
  • It organizes joint research projects between
    the university researchers/graduate
    students and national and multinational
    industrial RDs.

10
What is Science Park? (Contd)
  • It offers selected national and multinational
    companies a possibility for establishing
    research centers in the park where they can
    have access to the university facilities and
    expertise.
  • It helps the start-up of small and medium size
    companies through its incubators.

11
Goals of a Science Park
  • It aims at increasing industrial wealth through
    knowledge based activities.
  • It supports the main national industrial
    activities.
  • It creates start-ups useful to the major
    national industries.
  • It optimizes the interaction between the industry
    and the academic sectors.

12
Goals of a Science Park (Contd)
  • It facilitates the technology transfer from the
    university to the park clients.
  • It enhances the industrial interest in basic
    research.
  • It increases awareness of the industrial needs
    and problems in the academic sector.
  • It creates job opportunities.

13
Goals of a Science Park (Contd)
  • It promotes an entrepreneurial culture among
    faculty and graduate students.
  • It encourages selected faculty and graduate
    students to join the incubator.
  • It helps solving the problems of less competent
    industries.
  • It helps regional development.

14
Benefits of a Science Park
  • Technology transfer from the university to the
    industrial partners.
  • Reverse of brain drain.
  • Increase of employment opportunities.
  • Increase the number of successful companies in
    technology based industries especially those
    supporting the major national industries.

15
Benefits of Science Park (Contd)
  • Development of the high-value-added industries.
  • Creation of development funds from the operating
    surpluses to provide for the future growth of the
    Park.

16
Benefits of Science Park (Contd)
  • Help in the establishment of joint research
    projects between the members of the park.
