The Spanish company is part of this new park, which has been created with the aim to generate a business network that spins around knowledge, technology research and the forward-looking spirit of its members.
Last Monday 12th July, VSN representatives attended the official presentation of ORBITAL 40, Terrassa's new Technology and Science Park. The park is a unique space committed to integrate high value-added activities (research, business activity, transfer, education, innovation, initiative) and vertebrate one of the most important intensive areas on knowledge and technology based on innovation and creativity of the E-9 European Axis.
The opening ceremony of ORBITAL 40 took place at the premises of the Audiovisual Parc of Cataluña, one of the focal points of this Technology and Science Park and the place where the VSN headquarters are located. Ms. Cristina Garmendia, Minister of Science and Innovation; Mr. José Montilla, President of the Generalitat, and Terrassa's Major, Mr. Pere Navarro, attended the inaugural event. Thanks to this project the city of Terrassa will surely become an internationally renowned media research and development spot and will surely attract the interest of companies in this sector. Garmendia declared to the media that the Ministry of Science and Technology has supported the city with an estimate of 6,7 million euros between the 2008-2010 period.
VSN moved their headquarters into the Audiovisual Parc of Cataluña in 2008 with the aim to take part in this large project to foster the audiovisual sector. With the start of the Park ORBITAL 40, the Spanish company will actively participate in the exchange and transfer of knowledge and technology for generating and making the most out of the synergies among universities, research centers and private companies.
