IASP is the leading association of innovation ecosystems worldwide. Our mission is to be the global network for science parks (STPs), innovation districts, knowledge cities and other areas of innovation (AOIs), driving growth, internationalisation and effectiveness for our members.


As hybrid spaces for entrepreneurial-minded people, areas of innovation play a key role in the sustainable economic development of their cities and regions, and IASP works as their global platform, coordinating an active network of innovation ecosystem managers. We enhance new business opportunities for members and their companies, increase their visibility and multiply their global connections. We also represent parks and areas of innovation at international forums and institutions, and assist the development of new STPs and AOIs.


A worldwide membership-based organization, IASP is an independent non-profit NGO with members in over 70 countries, and a gateway to more than 115,000 innovative companies around the world.
