Abstract:Researchers have linked parts of the economic development and progress of a region to a successfully functioning science park. A successful University-Industry-Cooperation is an essential reason for job and wealth creation. It was examined that science parks with links to universities or other higher education institutions play an important role for the innovation of new-technology based firms because of the existing knowledge transfer. Hence, it is essential that the cooperation between the university and the companies of the region is going to be encouraged and supported. Therefore, in this paper it was explored how the science park management can improve this collaboration. This was done on the basis of a cross-sectional case study of the Kennispark Twente in Enschede, Netherlands by semi-structured interviews with participatory actors. As a main result, it can be concluded the science park management can improve the cooperation by the creation of events to create possibilities of network creation and by the implementation of specific departments responsible for the University-Industry-Cooperation.
