The importance of re-defining space in building a science park for knowledge creation
Paper in proceedings, 2015
The challenges in transforming a tech-park into a science park, from the traditional transactional knowledge-transfer model into a more relational knowledge creation based model, is here be described using the metaphor of liminality. Furthermore, how can the concept of “Ba” and the knowledge creation process assist in understanding how to avoid the condition of liminality, being neither in the transactional knowledge-transfer model nor having incorporated the more relational knowledge creation based model. This case, based on Johanneberg Science Park, illustrate the difficulties in making this change in mind and suggest using the concept of Ba’ in better understanding how to enable the development of the concept of a science park as a place for knowledge creation in managing the space as Ba’.
