Good Practice Information

A cooperation between large and small companies to establish an ICT Development Centre to become a leading actor in ICT technology. The ICT Development Centre allows SMEs to get full access to highly ICT equipped working space and a possibility to work within innovative environments with good access to R&D, networking, managerial and marketing services.
The availability of a 'complete' service including e-cloud and other highly specialized services has already attracted SMEs with high innovative potentials. The ICT Development Centre is supported from ERDF funds, and will in the future be run by a public private partnership.

Evidence of success

The ICT Development Park is funded by ERDF and will thereby by measured by no. of working places, no of trainings, etc. But these numbers are not counted yet. However, within 1 year 23 SMEs are working in the park (of which 12 are start ups) which is a really good result.
