The Royal Science and Technology Park (RTSP) was created to lay the foundation for the development of a knowledge economy and develop infrastructure to facilitate the development of science, technology and innovation through research and development in the economy.
There are two divisions of the RSTP: (1) the Biotechnology Park and (2) the Innovation Park, which are located within 10 minutes of each other and will share a “one stop facility” that creates an enabling environment to the investor wishing to settle within the Science and Technology Park.
The Biotechnology Park
The Biotechnology Park is located at Nokwane and will focus on activities such as:
Agriculture, Plant and Animal Biotechnology.
Environment and Biodiversity.
Biofuels, Biofertilizers, Biopesticides, Biochemicals and Bioenergy products.
Bioprocesses, Product Development, and Bioinstrumentation.

The park covers an area of 159 hectares and aims to be a sustainable development built on the developmental elements of compatibility, diversity, identity and efficiency for future physical development.
CECI commenced feasibility study and master planning services for the Biotechnology Park development in 2008 and since then has carried out design services and is now supervising its construction.
The Innovation Park
The Innovation Park is located at Phocweni right next door to the Biotechnology Park and will house facilities such as:
