Purpose and Goal

Science and Technology Parks and Incubators encourage cooperation and synergy between universities, research institutions, and the private sector and create a favorable environment for innovation, renovation and training.
Therefore, the purpose of the proposed STP is to create high-tech clusters that serve as catalysts to technology development,economic transformation, and wealth creation with a link to university knowledge generation.

Bio-resources

The proposed STP is in a central technology corridor, suitable for agriculture and food technology related activities. The STP focuses on green energy (bio-energy), bio-resources, biotechnology, food technology, agricultural engineering and ICT that supports these focus areas.

Design, Manufacturing and Materials

To further enhance the functionality of the park, a design, manufacturing and materials hub is proposed to focus on mechanization of agriculture through advancements in among others robotics and mechatronics.

Information and Communication Technology

ICT is identified as an important focus area to support the agriculture and food technology products. The ICT hub primarily focuses on applications and software in support of the agro-tech sector and developing synergies with other STP tenants.

The STP at DeKUT seeks to provide value to start-ups, existing businesses, research institutes, government and investors .
