Association of University Research Parks (AURP)


The Association of University Research Parks (AURP)'s mission is to foster innovation, commercialization and economic growth through university, industry and government partnerships. AURP is a professional association serving the world’s community of university-related research, science and technology parks.  AURP membership is selectively focused on university parks, many of which contain technology incubators, as well as a variety of university, government, not-for-profit and private companies interested in high-tech economic development initiatives.

AURP membership is not based on geography. It is based on collaboration, networking and the sharing of best practices by and between university research, science and tech park directors, university administrators, and those interested in using knowledge assets to build communities.

Recognised for premier education and professional development opportunities, AURP offers cutting-edge conferences, on-site professional development programming, iParks Webinars and access to the world’s innovation leaders. Highly experienced research park directors who have created the world’s leading university research parks lead the association. Serving as the source of news and updates, initiatives and emerging trends, AURP provides the tools and resources to create communities of innovation worldwide.
