Production sectors:
The main objective of the Gijón Science and Technology Park is to support the creation and installation of companies and institutions based on science and technology.

It presents a mixed character, to develop projects that involve the incorporation of R & D + I to companies and bring entrepreneurial character to the University. It is a business campus for the exercise of new forms of technology transfer.

The Science and Technology Park, promoted by the City Council of Gijón and managed by Centro Municipal de Empresas, S. A., has been awarded almost all of its plots in the Enclave de Cabueñes. Its activity in the coming years will have a direct positive influence on the industrial and academic environment, thanks to the "Mile of Knowledge" project, which aims to establish a space for exchange and technology transfer between all the innovation agents present in our environment (training and university centres, companies, research groups and public institutions).

Companies installed:
The presence of companies, sharing spaces with similar and complementary activities, facilitates mutual relations and fosters collaboration; also the market itself, wide and without borders, favours this dynamic.

  • Audiovisual

Public Purchase of Innovation
The Public Purchase of Innovation is an administrative action through which it is intended to satisfy an unmet need 
for an innovative solution. It has four main objectives:

  • Improve public services by purchasing innovative goods and services.
  • Driving innovation from the demand side.
  • Stimulate innovation in the business fabric.
  • Encourage the internalisation of innovation by using the public market as a launching pad for goods and services.

For this reason, Gijón IMPULSA has launched a first pilot experiment in which, for the acquisition of an "Intelligent Data Analysis Tool" (HAID IMPULSA), the public purchase of innovation will be used. This pilot experience will have an important multiplier effect, as well as scalable for the use of this type of purchase in the different municipal departments.


Object of the Public Purchase of Innovation

Acquisition of an Intelligent Data Analysis Tool that prepares and homogenizes, extracts and analyzes large amounts of information obtained from multiple and heterogeneous structured sources (databases, spreadsheets, open datasets) as well as those that are not, be they reports, records in electronic format, etc.

This Intelligent Data Analysis Tool will allow making accessible information from various data sources in open source for citizens and businesses, in order to locate the strengths of the city, overcome weaknesses and from the data obtained, companies can develop their activity in a more efficient way. In this way, the city as a whole will have a tool that will strengthen those sectors that will provide greater added value and thus improve the city's expectations of economic growth.

On the occasion of the Preliminary Market Consultation that is taking place in Gijón IMPULSA, an information conference was organized on the same, in which experts in Public Purchase of Innovation were also present, both at European and national level. This conference took place last June 20 at the facilities of the Science and Technology Park of Gijón.

  • Kick off EQUILIBRIA (26-28 October 2017)



Movimiento Equilibra is a project of the City Council of Gijón promoted by Impulsa (Centro Municipal de Empresas de Gijón, S. A.) with the collaboration and organization of the Fundación de Jóvenes Empresarios and the Asturian Association of Startups Astur Valley, which aims to promote healthy habits in the city of Gijón through technological initiatives related to food, health and sport. Its raison d' être is to encourage active citizen participation and healthy habits in the city, as well as to promote and make visible business projects in these three areas highlighting their innovative and technological component.
Throughout the summer months of 2017, Movimiento
developed a series of actions aimed at promoting healthy habits in the fields of health, nutrition and sport. As part of them, during this period we wanted to carry out a small study to know habits of the population of Gijón around them. As a result of the analysis of these results, actions such as #RETO30 were executed.
Movimiento Equilibria seeks, with this study on the eating habits, health and sports habits of the residents of Gijón, to detect possible improvements and direct to this end the actions and initiatives to be implemented in the city, positioning itself as a reference and pioneering city in these areas.


During the months of July and August, more than 700 surveys of residents of Gijón were collected through key events held in the city, the Atlantic Arc Festival and the International Trade Fair of Samples. 

The most important data collected during the process:
