Information for Innovation

Stuart Macdonald

Oxford University Press

This chapter defines and explores high technology and how it changed the world. High technology is considered ‘high’ not because it is nearer to God than ordinary technology, but because it involves high risk and possibly high return, a high rate of change, and especially, high information intensity. There is no agreed definition of high technology, nor is there a definitive understanding of what a technology park may be. However, technology parks are used synonymously with science park, research park, science centre, and combinations of these.

Keywords:   high technology, innovation, technology parks
