 About UKSPA Aspire

ASPIRE provides a quality framework for UKSPA members to commission a licenced Reviewer to carry out an effective independent evaluation to identify areas for further development. The review for the largest park will take no longer than 6 or 7 days, and for smaller Innovation Centres perhaps only 1 or 2 days.

Reviews carried out under this quality framework are confidential to the commissioning UKSPA member. However, following the successful completion of a review, participants will be provided with national and international  promotional opportunities to celebrate their ASPIRE recognition.

If you would like to participate in this quality initiative please contact Paul at the UKSPA office who will be pleased to give you an overview of the framework and introduce you to the process.
