Parque Científico y Tecnológico de Gipuzkoa - Gipuzkoako Zientzia eta Teknologia Parkea
Since its establishment in 1995, Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park has provided a base for local companies, encouraging knowledge sharing and the creation of a more economically sustainable society.
With a focus on the bioscience industry, the park is currently home to 157 companies employing more than 5000 people and generating 4% of the Gipuzkoa region’s GDP.
Strategically located close to the city-center of San Sebastian and its port, international airport and rail links, Gipuzkoa offers services including networking days for resident companies to learn about each other’s work and create partnership opportunities, and sector-specific collaboration networks. The site offers 10 different buildings for companies to rent space, as well as vacant lots for companies to construct their own buildings and a range of leisure and sports activities, restaurantes, a natural park, a kindergarten, and a hotel and student residence.
Gipuzkoa works to make science and technology accessible to society, working incollaboration with resident companies and universities to promote STEM subjects among young people and promoting the work of women in STEM fields. Along with fellow IASP members Alava STP and Bizkaia STP, Gipuzkoa is part of the Basque Network of Technology Parks (RTPE), an ecosystem for knowledge and talent which acts as a driving force for the positioning of innovation and internationalisation at the centre of Basque industrial policy. Acting as a network they share talent, vision and knowledge in order to generate wealth and boost the quality of life in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country. Working alongside them are the three Basque universities, the centres for basic and excellence research (Basque Excellence Research Centres), business incubators, technology centres, business clusters and professional associations.
