Abstract
This study intended to research the concept of knowledge diffusion in an innovative environment such as a science park. In a first step, the existing literature was reviewed to extract the most important concepts and to purposefully develop five hypotheses. Those were further tested in the case of Ideon Science Park in Lund, Sweden. The research shows that the intentions of the management at Ideon Science Park and the perceptions of their tenants are similar if not overlapping. However, the study further points to the fact that the best-practices in literature are not always perceived as beneficial in reality. Lastly, the study provides some ideas and incentives to replicate this study or further develop it.
