Since its establishment in 1995, Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park has provided a base for Gipuzkoan companies as they work to connect innovation and savoir-faire, ensuring that knowledge flows naturally from one company to another in order to create a richer and more economically sustainable society as a whole. Together, they have created a focal point which bridges talent and creation, with the most important area of expertise being the bioscience industry. A concentration of leading companies has succeeded in transforming the Park into an international reference.
Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park is a part of the Red de Parques Tecnológicos de Euskadi (‘Basque Network of Technology Parks’ or ‘RPTE’), an ecosystem for knowledge and talent which acts as a driving force for the goal of placing innovation and internationalisation at the centre stage of Basque industrial policy. The Network, which has already consolidated its position as an agent for the transfer of R+D to the business environment, includes a total of 572 companies distributed across the three Parks (Álava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa). Acting independently, each centre has established itself as a decisive innovation hub, while acting together they share talent, vision and knowledge to generate wealth and boost wellbeing in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country.
