These words evoke a feeling of strength and fortitude—eliciting a sense of adventure and excitement in what the future may hold. Innovation, technology and groundbreaking discoveries coming out of Research Parks are represented through these powerful words.
Each day, Research Parks are faced with new and exciting challenges and must adapt to meet the ongoing needs of the Park, its communities and its corporate and government partners. Research Parks are evolving at a rapid pace to remain relevant and cutting-edge to address its constituent’s growing needs and face the future head-on.
To address these “winds of change” and help research parks harness these challenges through ingenuity and determination, AURP is holding our 2016 Annual International Conference in Oklahoma City this fall.
