We also wish to thank the WAINOVA members who have made this Atlas possible. We owe a great deal to the extensive work of a small but very dedicated team of professionals who were entrusted with the organisation of this formidable task. Special acknowledgement must be made to the IASP. Paulo de Miranda, Director of the Projects and Knowledge Management Department, assisted coordinating the project and provided a wealth of contributions for the overall content of the Atlas. Coordinating the various tasks of such a complex project demanded the energy and continuous enthusiasm as given by Laura Monasterio and Alicia Shelley from the IASP. Without their tireless work, dedication and superb sense of humour, this project could certainly not be finished. We would also like to thank all members of the Editorial Committee and Prof. Henry Etzkowitz from Triple Helix Research Group at Newcastle University Business School for their valuable contributions to the Atlas’s content. We also wish to thank our partners, Ten Alps Publishing and Filmac, for their commitment to making this Atlas a high quality product. Finally, credit for this Atlas must also be given to WAINOVA's co-ordinator Luis Sanz, who proposed the idea to WAINOVA members and subsequently guided the project. 6

The World Alliance of Innovation —WAINOVA— coordinates 24 associations of science / technology parks and innovation based business incubators all over the world. Its mission is to contribute to the world’s economic and social growth by promoting innovation, technology transfer and the establishment of technology and innovation based companies. his Atlas presents the first panoramic vision of science and technology parks (in its broadest meaning, including research parks, technopoles and similar concepts) and business incubators from all over the world. Of course, such a rich phenomenon as “innovation” has a multitude of agents and players. Those grouped within WAINOVA (parks and incubators) are just two of many but have a special importance for their character as meeting points and linkages for other elements. Indeed, science and technology parks are the pivotal point in which companies, universities and public policies all come together, thus becoming propellers of innovation and growth. Together with the parks, business incubators channel the innovation culture and the entrepreneurs’ energy for the creation of companies and jobs. The global knowledge economy creates new work conditions and more competition, multiplies the importance of talent and skills, demands a fluid communication and collaboration between universities and companies, reinforces T the role of entrepreneurs, and converts networks and networking into a cornerstone of our times. Science, technology and research parks, together with innovation based business incubators, are projects that were conceived especially to work in this new environment, of which they are an essential part. The associations which make up WAINOVA are their most effective networks, encompassing the world, and bring together an immense wealth of knowledge about their design, management and successful practices. This WAINOVA Atlas of Innovation, both the printed and the online version, will further our knowledge and comprehension of innovation and its huge importance for growth and wealth creation.
