“S/PARK OFFERS A BREEDING GROUND FOR INNOVATION IN CHEMISTRY AND TECHNOLOGY”
Open innovation is about chemistry between people. S/park offers low-threshold access to unique knowledge and facilities, that are normally inaccessible for many start-up companies, students and researchers.

Eight hectares are dedicated for chemical companies to expand their work at a full environmental category 5 site.
