Techpoles - planned centres for the promotion for high- techlogy industry - have become a key feature of national ecomic development worldwide. Created out of a techlogical revolution, the formation of the global ecomy and the emergence of a new form of ecomic production and management, they constitute the mines and foundries of the information age, redefining the conditions and processes of local and regional development. This book is the first systematic survey of techpoles in all manifestations: science parks, science cities, national techpoles and techbelt programmes. Detailed case studies, ranging from the Silicon Valley to Siberia and from the M4 Corridor to Taiwan, relate how global techpoles have developed, what each is striving to achieve and how well it is succeeding. Techpoles of the World distills the lessons learnt from the successes and failures, embracing a host of disparate concepts and a few myths, and offering guidelines for national, regional and local planners and developers worldwide.
