Good Practice Information

The good practice refers to philosophy behind the management of the park, namely to make use of the knowledge in universities to create a high quality environment offering high quality services. This in turn attracts entrepreneurs who would like to set up their business in the park offering the preliminary conditions for foreign investors to come. Through the activities of the park, the Regional
Government of Aragón aims to promote local and regional development by investing in local talent. The main stakeholders are the public administration, universities, research institutions and companies. This concept is highly innovative as STPs combine the services offered by industrial parks with services of research, innovation and technology transfer
