About the local host

Technoport

We have over 20 years of experience in the field of incubation and support to the creation and development of innovative and technology companies in Luxembourg. Our vision is to bridge ideas to success by creating the right ecosystem around innovation and entrepreneurship. 

To achieve this mission, we built the business incubator with equipped office space and industrial facilities, home to over 40 innovative companies at a given time, and covering various sectors from ICT to healthtech, spacetech and industrial applications. Our market segments are newly-established startup companies and spin-offs, as well as foreign companies that need a partner to quickly ramp-up R&D activities in Luxembourg. 

We also run the Digital Experience Studio, where we help validate business concepts/applications around digital content creation by bringing people together during specific and thematic hackathons or projects, and a wide network of local and international partners and global supporters.

Cartuja Science and Technology Park

The Cartuja Science and Technology Park is the first international example of re-use of premises inherited from a universal exhibition (Expo’92) in a space that links up the University, Science and Enterprise.

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

The Cartuja STP is a public policy instrument which seeks to enhance local economic development and technological modernisation. It encourages private investment in R&D&I by offering itself as an innovative space, where cooperation is the basis for growth. It integrates scientific, technical and social capacities that facilitate the creation, transmission, dissemination, measurement and management of knowledge and its application in productive activities.

 Human capital is the main asset of its companies and research centres.

 The Cartuja STP also has an added advantage: Its privileged setting. It is an urban park, just a few minutes’ walk from the historic centre of Seville, and less than 20 minutes from both the airport and the high-speed railway network train station.

 What really constitutes the heart of the Cartuja STP are its scientific and technological companies and establishments. In addition to these are the areas dedicated to culture, leisure and sport. Together they constitute a cluster of excellence.

 The Park is a true business, scientific and technological engine that is in continuous development. As a result, the cluster houses 536 companies and establishments that generate direct employment for 23,701 workers and an economic activity of 2.987 billion euros (data for the financial year 2020) ​. See Report 2020
