The Scientific and Technological Park of the UPM (“Parque UPM”) represents a significant boost to the University’s R&D&i activity through the creation of new R&D&i centres, business incubators, and specialized laboratories, with the backing and participation of public and private institutions.
The concept of “Parque UPM” covers various scientific and technological areas linked with engineering and architecture. It is geographically distributed in various sites, all of which are located in the region of Madrid (Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid): South Campus, Montegancedo and Getafe.
The construction of “Parque UPM” will be a process which takes place over a number of years, and will make the most of the funding available from public administrations and the private sector. The initiatives already in place represent an investment of 50 million euros. The total investment by 2010 is estimated at 100 million euros.
