The Technology Park (TP) is located at the CCT CONICET Santa Fe plot and one of its main aims is to foster the interaction between the scientific and the entrepreneurial sectors. This 31 ha. piece of land is by the Setúbal lake shore where scientific and technological research institutions carry out their activities and provide technological support to the entrepreneurs when it is required. There are two institutes established already in the plot: The Instituto de Desarrollo Tecnológico para la Industria Química (INTEC) and the Centro Internacional de Mecánica Computacional (CIMEC). In the near future there will be the Instituto de Matemática Aplicada del Litoral (IMAL), the Instituto de Investigaciones en Catálisis y Petroquímica (INCAPE), the Instituto de Agrobiotecnología del Litoral (IAL) and the Instituto de Desarrollo y Diseño (INGAR). All of them depend on the Universidad Nacional del Litoral (U.N.L.) and the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET), except for INGAR which depends on the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional (UTN) and CONICET.


The Technology Park gives entrepreneurs not only the advantage to share their activities with researchers in different fields but also the access to the important scientific and technological offers from the R+D groups of the Universidad Nacional del Litoral, Universidad Tecnológica Nacional and Universidad Católica of Santa Fe and other institutes depending on CONICET which are established in the city. Research activities and the increasing high value-added productive entrepreneurships benefit from the financial calls that regularly announce the National Ministry of Industry (Ministerio de Industria de la Nación), the National Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovative Production (Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación Productiva de la Nación) and the Secretary of Science, Technology and Innovation of Santa Fe Province (Secretaría de Estado de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación de la Provincia de Santa Fe).
