Costa Rican authorities and four of the country's main universities have met at the first workshop to analyze creating a scientific and technological park, Costa Rican VP Alfio Piva announced.
The topic is "a priority for our government," Piva said. "To define a scientific-technological park will mean a joint effort from all sectors... to create the model we want. And to it implement by taking into account the creation of national networks and to learn from other experiences, including the not so successful ones, so we don't make the same mistakes."
Different experts are participating in the project, such as professor Deog-Seong Oh, general secretary of the World Technopolis Association (WTA), and Fred Phillips, professor from the Marshall Goldsmith School of Management in the US.
