Services in the technological field

  • Aid and grants for R+D projects:
    dissemination of information.
  • Collaboration with Universities and Public R+D Centres:
    help in making contact.
  • Technological networks:
    The Park is a member of the APTE (Spanish Association of Scientific and Technological Parks), of which it holds a vice-chairmanship, and of the IASP (International Association of Science Parks), of which it is a board member.

    These associations facilitate connection with state and world-wide technological networks.

    The administrative organs of these two associations help the enterprises in the park with contacts on all levels in their search for businesses and institutions with whom they can establish commercial or collaboration links.

    On the other hand, the Park maintains contacts on a Catalan level to assist collaboration with businesses in the science and technology field.
