Gdynia Expands Science and Technology Park

The coastal city of Gdynia has expanded its science and technology park in a zl.208 million project. The park’s area has increased sixfold, making it the largest science and technology complex of its kind in Poland. It is now over 76,000 square meters in size, with room for more than 300 companies. The new facilities have been built using energy-efficient methods and meeting stringent environmental requirements. The managers of the park say some 2,000 jobs may be created as a result of the expansion project.

The Science and Technology Park in Gdynia opened more than 10 years ago. The first few buildings were converted from a former bus depot in a major redevelopment project. During World War II, an aircraft plant operated on the site. Today, as a result of a successful makeover of the industrial zone, the complex is home to a number of innovative companies, some of them successful on international markets and at international technology exhibitions. Businesses active in the Science and Technology Park include one founded by a group of Gdańsk University of Technology graduates who have developed a multilingual speech synthesis system called Ivona, a leading design of its kind in the world.

Fledgling businesses are provided with assistance in the start-up zone. Other facilities in the complex include a design center, a modern prototyping center, an electronics laboratory, and a biotechnology lab. Those wanting to use space in the park need to propose an innovative project and come up with a business plan.
