On October 21 at 16:30 pm the Minister of Science and Innovation, Cristina Garmendia, and the mayor of Mataró, Joan Antoni Baron, will inaugurate the TecnoCampus Mataró-Maresme science and innovation park (TCM). The new facilities of the park, located on the seafront of Mataró, are at one of the main entrances to the city, next to the Laia l'Arquera roundabout (Av. Ernest Lluch s / n). The prestigious architect Oriol Bohigas and his team are the authors of the project, which consists of about 44.000 m² distributed in various spaces.
For the financing of the TCM park, promoted by the Mataró City Council with the support of the Maresme County Council, there have been contributions from various administrations, especially the State. The global investment was 52 million euros, of which 14 were provided by the Ministry of Science and Innovation through preferential loans at low interest rates.
The new headquarters of the TCM in the Rengle consists, on the one hand, of two towers for knowledge-based companies, the ICT Health Foundation, the incubator of innovative companies and a conference center. On the other hand, the TecnoCampus has a university building that is configured as a real campus facing the sea, and is home to three university centers: two attached to the Pompeu Fabra University (the Maresme University School and the School of Health Sciences) and one attached to the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (the Polytechnic University School of Mataró).
The CETEMMSA technology center, which carries out applied research on smart materials and devices, will also have its headquarters in the park, where there are currently research and transfer groups focused on: biometrics, ICT and health, acoustics applied to ecology urban, ICTs applied to solutions for people with mental or physical disabilities, power electronics, audiovisuals and tourism.
