Science and Technology Park

Ostrava’s Science and Technology Park (STP) is an effective tool for supporting the development of businesses and the labour market in hi-tech segments; it was inspired by many similar projects that have achieved great success in other countries all around the world. The STP was established by a consortium consisting of the City of Ostrava, the Regional Development Agency, the VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava, the University of Ostrava, and the Silesian University in Opava.

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.

In the autumn of 2003 the PIANO multifunctional building was completed and opened for use. Financed with public funds, it contains 2 500 mof high-quality office space – including the main offices and operations centre of the STP itself. In April 2006 the second building (TANDEM) was opened, offering 2 900 m2 of office space. The third and fourth buildings were both opened in April 2006. TRIDENT (2 650 m2 of office space) and VIVA (2 102 m2) function as business incubators for SMEs, helping to support innovative business ideas. The STP is currently home to 58 companies as tenants, plus three companies which own buildings at the park (Elcom, a.s., Ingeteam, a.s., VAE Prosys, s.r.o.). A total of 758 employees work at the STP’s companies (data as of 31 December 2016).
