Initiating the dream to make contribution to the economic development of Indonesia through economic growth in South Bandung area, it is required agencies to synergize the role of Quadruple Helix (4 main actors of innovation). Bandung Techno Park which was established in cooperation between Telkom Institute of Technology and the Ministry of Industry of Republic of Indonesia answers it all. Bandung Techno Park establishment begins with the establishment of UPT Telematics institution and Telecommunication Design Center (Pusat Desain Telekomunikasi or PDT) as a place of innovation for lecturers, students and the public, as well as the Business Incubator as a venue for people to learn how to do business.
The establishment of Bandung Techno Park is the realization of the dream of IT Telkom academic community of wanting to develop Teknopark as a bridge between the ICT sector and educational institution in the world of energy industry. IT Telkom as one of the institutions of higher education in the field of Information Technology and the National Telecommunication has the ability and the Human Resources that are sufficient to develop applied research that can be utilized by the public.
Since the beginning of 2007, Telkom Institute of Technology is trusted by the Ministry of Industry to develop UPT Telematics in order to grow and develop Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the field of ICT (Information and Telecommunications). Since 2007 until now, the Ministry of Industry provides a number of modern devices, while the UPT activities are supported by Disperindag Jabar Telematics. Activities that have been conducted are trainings in ICT in order to foster SMEs, with the purpose to lifting the National Industry. Since 2009, Telkom Institute of Technology is also trusted by the Ministry of Industry to develop Telecommunication Design Center (PDT). PDT was inaugurated by the Minister of Industry on January 12, 2010. On January 12, 2010, it will also be conducted cornerstone-laying of Bandung Techno Park in the campus environment of Telkom Institute of Technology.
Both of these institutions are the forerunners of Teknopark with the name of Bandung Techno Park which was inaugurated by the Minister of Industry on January 19, 2010. In 2009 the Ministry of National Education entrusted the development of Business Incubator to Bandung Techno Park.
Along the way and the need for a greater role of Bandung Techno Park as well as a variety of considerations, starting in November 2011 Bandung Techno Park management was separated from IT Telkom. Therefore, Bandung Techno Park is expected to provide more real and more extensive role for the public in West Java or even the nation.
