Abstract
The development of science parks constitutes an interesting example of policy to enhance the technology-based development of a region.

This article traces the historical events related to the creation of Mjardevi Science Park that have influenced its technological and industrial development. It then outlines the park's path of development and subsequently addresses key factors affecting the growth dynamics of the park. (Less)
