¿Do you know the Park?

The Cartuja Science and Technology Park is the first international example of the reuse of a world exhibition (Expo’92) facility as a connection point between universities, science and business.

Its success is reflected in its motto: Innovate, collaborate, grow.

STP Cartuja are public policy instruments aimed at enhancing local economic development and technologically modernising.

It integrates the scientific, technical and social skills that facilitate knowledge creation, transmission, diffusion, measurement and management and its application to productive activities.
