Park Innovaare's infrastructure enables close exchange and cooperation between research and industry.

Park Innovaare: Construction processes

After the topping-out ceremony of the Park Innovaare took place in autumn 2021 as an important milestone, construction continues to progress according to plan. From 2024, companies and researchers will work together at one place.

Around two and a half years have now passed since the groundbreaking ceremony for Park Innovaare was held in 2019. Since then, the project has taken shape as planned and is well on schedule, despite various challenges such as a pandemic or shortage of raw materials. In the meantime, the scaffolding has been removed from the buildings and the focus of further construction work is on the interior fittings. With more than 35,000 m2 of space, the Park Innovaare offers laboratories, clean rooms and workshops, as well as offices, co-working spaces and meeting rooms - a versatile range of facilities for a wide variety of needs. There will also be meeting rooms to promote exchange between research and industry, as well as a restaurant.

The first tenants, including PSI as the main tenant, are expected to be able to move in at the beginning of 2024. Around 70% of the space has already been let; further customer acquisition is currently underway so that the Park Innovaare ecosystem can be further expanded in the coming months and other companies can benefit from direct access and exchange with the PSI by locating on site.
