Presentation

The Tecnocampus Mataró-Maresme Foundation is the public entity in charge of managing the technology and university park. Promoted by Mataró City Council, it is a private law foundation with a vocation for public service in education and business development. 

The highest governing body of the Foundation is the Board of Trustees, which is represented by the public administrations, Pompeu Fabra University, business and trade union organizations and civil society organizations. In this sense, the Foundation is inspired by a triple helix model 

Triple Helix

The genesis of the Tecnocampus can be traced back to 1982, with the creation of the Polytechnic University School of Mataró, from the already consolidated Miquel Biada Municipal Institute of Vocational Training. This university engineering center was the result of the drive of Mataró City Council and the industrial fabric itself at a time when Mataró was a town strongly focused on industrial activity and one of the most dynamic cities in the country in business creation. A year later, in 1994, the Maresme University School (EUM) was created by the Maresme County Council, with affiliation to Pompeu Fabra University. 

In 1999, Mataró City Council launched the Master Plan for the Information Society, which defines the TecnoCampus concept, which was launched in 2010 in the city's new expansion area, in El Rengle, in seafront. 

Since 2010, the university offer of the Tecnocampus has been expanded, with studies in the fields of engineering, video games, audiovisual, business management, marketing, logistics, tourism, nursing, activity physics and sports or physiotherapy that have surpassed the figure of 3.500 students. The 17 degrees and double degrees that can be taken are complemented by postgraduate and master's studies, with the seal of Pompeu Fabra University, to which the university studies of the TecnoCampus are attached.  

As a technology park, internationalization, financing and growth services are offered to the entire business fabric, and in particular to the more than one hundred companies based in the park.
