Thematic Areas

The STP focuses on three main thematic areas; Bio-resources, design, manufacturing and materials, and ICT hardware and software supporting the other two thematic areas.

Bio- resources
The 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. The bio-resource aims at innovation in research and development and commercialization of a wide range of bio-resources and enhancement of value chain in agricultural products. The bio-energy focuses on development of bio-fuels, pilot bio-energy plant and R&D and commercialization for household use.

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. Main focus areas include: electronics manufacturing units and Mechatronics devices-drones, industrial robots; Electronics circuit; biomedical materials and devices; industrial management; material science and engineering; spatial applications, leather and leather products and industrial chemistry, dyes; medicines-implants.

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.Focus areas include: ICT Big Data and Data Science; Environmental Conservation and Tourism; spatial science; smart government (land administration), security studies; business analytics (Data Science Analytics and Security Management Applications); security management, Smart government, spatial science, Biotech/Healthcare, Environment conservation and tourism; Remote Sensing and GIS; Mapping Biological Conservation and land use patterns
