List of technology centers
A Silicon Valley skyline (San Jose).
This is a
list of throughout the world. Governmental planners and business networks like to use the name "silicon" or "valley" to describe their own areas as a result of the success of technology centers Silicon Valley in California. Nevertheless, there are a few qualitative differences between these places, and metrics may be applied to measure their dominance.
These metrics include:
How much and to what extent public and/or private research and development (R&D) funds are spent in the zones
What percentage of local employment is technology related.
If the zone is mainly government funded or is mainly corporate driven (or is it a mix of both)
If mainly corporate, how much revenue and profit and which corporations have headquarters there.
If mainly corporate, how much
venture capital has been made available to companies in the zone. What supporting higher educational institutions (e.g., universities or colleges) are located in nearby.
Globally prominent clusters
Silicon Valley: Originating in Stanford University (Palo Alto and Menlo Park), and spreading south towards San Jose, California and suburbs. San Francisco and nearby areas including Berkeley and Oakland are technically not part of Silicon Valley but have seen growth in industries such as web development (2013–2016) and venture capital. Silicon Valley has maintained dominance for decades in core industries such as microprocessor development as well as software and web development.
IT cluster Rhine-Main-Neckar, Germany: Europe's largest software cluster, is globally dominant in business software, IT security research and biopharmaceuticals
CERN in Geneva, Switzerland is globally dominant in particle physics.
Dulles Technology Corridor is globally dominant in telecom, satellite, and defense industries.
Hsinchu Science Park: Hsinchu City and Hsinchu County, Taiwan is the dominant area worldwide for pure-play semiconductor foundry market.
Silicon Alley or NYC is globally dominant in fintech although Shenzhen is also coming up strong in this area.
Silicon Fen: The name given to the region around Cambridge, England, which is home to a large cluster of high-tech businesses focusing on software, electronics and biotechnology. Many of these businesses have connections with the University of Cambridge, and the area is now one of the most important technology centres in Europe. Silicon Wadi: An area with a high concentration of high-tech industries in the  coastal plain in Israel. Israel as a whole country has strong innovation in Cyber Security, Agritech and more. The Silicon Wadi area covers much of the country, although especially high concentrations of hi-tech industry can be found in the area around Tel Aviv, including small clusters around the cities of Ra'anana, Petah Tikva, Herzliya, Netanya, the academic city of Rehovot and its neighbour Rishon Le Zion. In addition, hi-tech clusters can be found in Haifa and Caesarea. More recent hi-tech establishments have been raised in Jerusalem ( Technology Park, Malha, Har Hotzvim and JVP Media Quarter in Talpiot), and the Startup Village Ecosystem in the Yokneam area.
