This chapter reviews the literature on knowledge and technology transfer at research, science, and technology (R-S-T) parks and considers the public policy implications of such findings. The authors conclude that successful two-way knowledge flows between universities and industry are a key ingredient of a “national innovation system” and that R-S-T parks play a significant role in stimulating such flows. However, it is noted that parks are not a sine qua non of these knowledge flows. The authors suggest that while R-S-T parks fall under the broader category of an effective educational system, they warrant a higher status in future, as technological life cycles continue to shorten and as basic research at universities and applied research/development in industry become more intertwined.
