Technopark is a union of companies called residents that implement innovation activities. Development of the competence management system for technoparks is currently a relevant task. Such system allows automating the process of resident’s search that can satisfy potential customer tasks. The paper presents a smart space-based approach for competence management system development and implementation. Every resident is described by a profile that is shared with the smart space and becomes accessible for other competence management system users. The profile consists of several competencies and evidences with skills levels characterized their degree of possession.
