Fostering innovation through knowledge partnerships
Whether hosting small or large research entities, research parks enable the formation of symbiotic relationships that speed and enhance project development. Critically relevant to today’s economy, they also create new jobs, new industries and new solutions. As we increasingly appreciate both the interconnectivity of science and the power of collaboration, the environment in which we conduct research is changing, and it is important that planning efforts for the environments within which this research takes place consider many new and emerging issues. Today’s research parks must be structured to support interdisciplinary research and development on a world class level, as the focus upon collaboration, entrepreneurship and innovation becomes more important and essential to the immediate and long term success of these entities.
Perkins+Will provides a deep background of planning leading-edge research communities as well as the world-class research facilities within these communities. We provide a framework that reinforces the basic ideas of innovation while developing the elements critical in creating a vibrant, interactive environment in which researchers from around the world can come and join the rich and productive community.
