The Moravian-Silesian Innovation Centre was established on 1 July 2017 by transforming the Ostrava Science and Technology Park, founded by the City of Ostrava in 1997. With the capital investment of the Moravian-Silesian Region, the shareholders include the City of Ostrava, the Agency for Regional Development, VŠB–Technical University of Ostrava, the Ostrava University and the Silesian University in Opava.

The aim of MSIC is to provide start-up entrepreneurs and companies in the region with effective support and bring more growing and export-oriented companies to the region, invest in innovation, industrial research and development, and ensure a more intimate link between the business environment and the academic sector.

MSIC offers support to entrepreneurs in multifunctional buildings located on its compound, which provide technical and office facilities with leasable areas of about 10,700 m2.

The STP is located at the far western edge of the city, next to the campus of the VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava. It is accessed directly from the main Ostrava–Opava road.
