A zl.100 million technology park is being built in the northwestern city of Szczecin. The complex, called Technopark Pomerania, will be home to 80 companies and be part of a network of organizations supporting the development of innovative businesses in Poland.
Technopark Pomerania will comprise an Innovation Center for new technology companies, a Business Incubator for information technology firms, and a Computer Center.
The complex will be managed by Szczeciński Park Naukowo-Technologiczny (Szczecin Science and Technology Park), an institution with a track record of supporting businesses in Szczecin.
The project aims to foster cooperation between enterprises and organizations interested in developing innovative products and services. Another aim is to contribute to the economic development of the region and increase the number of firms in the modern technology sector. All the Technopark facilities are scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.
The first facility, the IT Business Incubator, opened in September 2010. It currently brings together 20 companies.
A total of 11,000 square meters of modern office space and infrastructure will be available at Technopark Pomerania by the end of 2013. This is expected to help stimulate the development of innovative companies.
Work to build Technopark is being co-financed under the Regional Operational Program for West Pomerania Province. The project is expected to make Szczecin more attractive to foreign companies interested in doing business in science and technology parks.
Modern office space will be made available in two buildings for both business startups and dynamic companies in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector. The range of services will be adapted to the individual needs of the tenants, with a flexible arrangement of office space from conventional to open-plan modules. Also available will be conference and training facilities as well as many common areas.
