Abstract : As the 21st century approaches, Americans face the prospect of losing their competitive edge in a rapidly altering world economy unless they change their methods of industrial recruitment. This paper examines one proven stratagem for attracting, retaining, and nurturing high technology businesses: the research park. Cummings Research Park in Huntsville, Alabama, is offered as a case study. The paper concludes with an identification of those elements that have proven essential to the establishment of a research park.
