39th IASP World Conference on Science Parks and Areas of Innovation

Climate change is one of the greatest threats facing the world today, and innovation ecosystems have a leading role to play in consolidating global efforts to combat this threat through innovative green and digital technologies. Science parks and areas of innovation are spaces where new thinking builds solutions to solve current challenges. With climate change, there are an abundance of challenges to meet, and digital technologies play a central role in the energy systems of the future, as well as in the development of data-driven climate solutions, monitoring systems, models for behavioural change and much more, helping us move towards a carbon neutral future. The innovative companies that thrive in science parks and areas of innovation demonstrate the role new emerging tech can play in mitigating and adapting to climate change, such as increased energy efficiency in consumer products and in industry, climate predictions or material optimization. As spaces that bring together universities, the public and private sectors, venture capital, startups and entrepreneurs, innovative corporates, as well as their local community and wider society, innovation ecosystems have a unique capacity to accelerate the pace of this crucial innovation.
