Session 3: Supporting system from the collaboration of higher education institute with science and technology park
The significant synergistic effect can result from a complementary relationship between universities and science and technology parks. However, without a complementary relationship, the synergistic effect that may occur spontaneously will require a considerable amount of time. The system and governance that induce the cooperation naturally and easily have an important meaning in this field. In addition, the development of the relevant programs to strengthen the cooperation between universities and science and technology parks and the establishment of the support system are important development requirements.
