Abstract
A new form of economic development is taking shape worldwide - the so-called "knowledge revolution". Knowledge is a cornerstone in human development and helps to expand human capabilities. Knowledge has also increasingly become a dynamic factor of sustainable manufacturing and a powerful driver of human capital and productivity. Recent studies about the R&D performance as well as about the R&D capabilities in the Arab region and UAE especially document a serious shortfall in knowledge generation, acquisition, absorption and use as one of the major deficits undermining development. Therefore Science Parks became an important factor of support the knowledge development as well as Intellectual Capital Management in a rather resources-driven economy. This paper will introduce a new approach for Science Park Management by giving an example of UAE.
