Short Organization Description

Espaitec is the scientific, technological and business park of Jaume I University in Castellón, Spain.

Promoted by the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) and the Castellón Businesspeople’s Confederation (CEC), espaitec was set up in 2007 for the purpose of offering quantitative and recognised contribution to both socio-economic development in the province of Castellón and the diversification of its industrial fabric.

We wish to create a reference environment in Castellón which hosts, supports, encourages and helps innovative business initiatives to grow, and which facilitates active technology transfer in the University.

To go about this, we work in a network with the Spanish Association of Science and Technology Parks (APTE), we are an International Association of Scientific Parks (IASP) member, a European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) member, an Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) collaborator and an important agent in promoting innovation and enterprise in the province of Castellón.

Apart from its new infrastructures located in a single enclave based on knowledge, some of the actions it performs are highlighted below:

– supporting talent and entrepreneurship
– accompanying and driving business growth
– specialised innovation support services
– connections with the global innovation system
– offering support and soft landing for internationalisation
– territorial integration

Basically, espaitec is a park which aims to generate wealth, jobs and well-being by creating an economic and business fabric model that goes beyond former models. Nowadays, it houses more than 60 firms and it generates more than 750 highly qualified jobs including its own staff members and those of other parties.
