The Network of Science and Technology Parks of Catalonia (Xarxa de Parcs Científics i Tecnològics de Catalunya – XPCAT) holds 16 big spaces of production, transfer, diffusion and use of knowledge. It also works as the point of contact for the research and the innovative community. It consists of an important number of centres and groups for university research, technological centres, large companies and their associate R&D centres, companies focusing on innovation as well as new knowledge based companies.
