Basque Country Technology Park supports over 200 scientific and technological companies

The Basque Country Technology Park in Gipuzkoa, Spain, is celebrating its 30th anniversary, marking three decades of contributions to talent, innovation, and sustainability. The park supports over 200 scientific and technological companies, employing 6,500 people across its Donostia and Hernani campuses.

The park has facilitated projects in sectors such as biosciences, personalised health, clean energy, and smart industry, with companies like Viralgen, Graphenea, Multiverse Computing, and DNA DATA operating within its facilities.

The anniversary celebrations began earlier this year at the Donostia Campus, with an event attended by Iñigo Urkullu, President of the Basque Government.

The Park has played a significant role in the economic development of Gipuzkoa and the Basque region. It provides a diverse range of spaces that blend urban and architectural quality, fostering an inclusive environment where professionals in key sectors are motivated and supported.

Since its creation, the Technology Park has focused on bringing science and technology closer to society. It fosters knowledge sharing and promotes scientific and technological vocations among young people, with a particular emphasis on highlighting the role of women in these fields.

With an occupancy rate nearing 100%, the park is planning expansions in the Illumbe area of San Sebastian and in Hondarribia, as well as further developing the Hernani Campus.

The park's companies generate a combined turnover of €1.47 billion and invest €184 million in R&D. More than half of the 6,803 employees hold university degrees.
