Examines the nature of science parks in Britain. Reviews the sources of funding and investment that have typically been utilized to support what is, it is proposed, a specialized and distinct sector of property development. Draws attention to the diverse nature of and complex motives behind this form of development. Concludes that public sector patronage has to date been heavily relied on and as yet, despite apparent successes, private sector sources have remained reticent. Increasing commercialism on the part of British universities is recognized as having the potential to improve the performance and funding/investment profile of British science parks.
