What is a STP 3.0?

The Science and Technology Parks (STP) are becoming a fashion globally (see what I could observe the charts presented Luis Sanz, director of the IASP, in the Day of the Entrepreneur of the Comunidad Valenciana last May 5).

However, what I noticed when analysing management models parks both nationally and internationally is that there is an obsession around the concept of "brick". In other words, has come to say that an organization is not a STP if you do not have definitive building where hosting companies ... I do not agree with that assertion.

Looking for definitions of STP's, I think the closest to the concept of Scientific-Technological Park I'm viewing is postulated that the same IASP:

"A Science Park is an organization managed by specialized professionals, whose primary objective is to increase the wealth of their community by promoting the culture of innovation and competitiveness of enterprises and institutions generating namely installed in the park or associated with him.
To this end, a Science Park promotes and manages the flow of knowledge and technology between universities, research institutions, companies and markets; promotes the creation and growth of innovative companies through incubation and mechanisms generating centrifugal (spin-off) and provides other value-added services as well as space and facilities of high quality. "

I believe that as a STP 3.0 abstract entity which possesses the gift of ubiquity, which is considered actually an entity composed of persons, services and infrastructure (real and virtual) whose main objective is to be the generator engine of wealth in the region where placed, co-responsible in the process of achieving success by start-ups and facilitator of the already consolidated companies.

But totally independent of a specific physical location. A STP 3.0 is something that goes beyond: relocated, distributed and plural and various hybrid concepts. Of course, it may be virtual: Internet and the agora is a conversational environment and allows closer social networks, across platforms highly efficient (because they meet the objectives that arose) and efficient (because they meet the objective to lower costs).

Viewing a STP 3.0 as a body whose main vehicle of communication among its members is the network, corporate blogs and shared information without borders, under a 24x7x365.

I think the concept of a current STP is already obsolete: it is curious that in these environments is trying to promote the essence of innovation to businesses and parks are the least innovative. In some cases, has reached a state of "comfort" that does not allow creating a mental openness to other strategies, other perspectives environment.

Actually, with the responsibility that this requires a STP 3.0 is the main driver of what I call the Journey Management or management of companies that are part of it in its process of creation, incubation, growth and consolidation. A Journey in which a considerable body of actors (who work to support local entrepreneurs), each with their characteristics and make its value differential and complementary. Here are really speak of a true value chain.

It is necessary to take that leap although this would require a deep thinking and in many cases, implementing the reengineering of strategic plans to begin starting from scratch ....
