Abstract [en]

Science parks have from the very beginning been important and valuable tools for the development of knowledge intensive economies. Most science parks have also strongly attracted talents, ideas, capital, R&D and firms. During the past decades we have witnessed a number of other structures and organisations being established, i.e. innovation hubs, clusters and so forth. We have also seen a very clear trend that the science parks abandon the idea of being strict geographical locations and become more of a function in the city. One issue that quite recently has been recognised, connected to science park development, is the potential they have as attracters of talented individuals. The starting point is, which goes in line with Richard Florida and his thoughts about the “Creative class”, that regions´ ability to attract firms and human capital is a key in their economical development. Talent individuals will undertake entrepreneurial activities and building values for the environment in which they are operating. This paper will describe and analyse the role that science parks could have when it comes to recruiting and developing talents within the region they are operating. More precisely we are interested in the following research questions: 1) What strategies are science parks using to stimulate the attraction of talents in order to enhance innovation and entrepreneurship for their stakeholders? 2) How are these strategies implemented? 3) Why (if so) and in what way have the strategies been successful?
