- Upon request from the local decision makers, we speak with the various stakeholders, at different levels, to fully understand their expectations.
- We discuss with the promoters of the project to learn more about their vision.
- If it already exists, we work with the management team to integrate their existing plans.
This "exploratory phase" is conducted free of charge
When the "exploratory phase" is convincing, we try to identify the various "research assets", both tangible and intangible, on which the park could be built.
We use the "Parks Matrix" to identify, in close cooperation with the promoters, which type of park to develop: a "Research Park", a "Science Park", a "Thematic Park" or an Industrial Park".
When a Science Park is the appropriate option, we formulate recommendations for the next steps.
A flat fee is asked to cover the cost of the "pre-feasibility study". In case of further cooperation, this fee is considered as an advance on the global feasibility budget.
Following the result of the "pre-feasibility phase", we design the specific model of Science Park based on our (amended) recommendations.
We estimate the costs of the specific hard/soft components to be associated or created as well as the costs linked to the different phases of the implementation of the park.
We write a business plan for the park, adapting our standard model to the one selected.
We work out the Return On Investment to be expected.
A global feasibility budget is submitted to the promoters.
