The Science and Technology Park of Extremadura is located at the University of Extremadura, within its campuses in Cáceres and Badajoz.
Two plots, one of 12 hectares in Cáceres and another of 8.5 in Badajoz, guarantee the space necessary for the development and expansion of the Science and Technology Park of Extremadura. At urban level, it is a privileged space to work in, which promotes collaboration and relationships between researchers and between companies, with large green areas, with fluid paths, and provided with equipments ideal for developing research. Architecturally, we have buildings that enhance the quality of the work environment, creating spaces with luminosity, flexibility, optimal conditions of thermal and acoustic comfort, as well as energy savings. All spaces of PCTEx are conceived as unique spaces, perfectly adapted to host innovative companies and entities, and equipped with the infrastructure and technological equipment necessary for a proper development of its activity.
The park houses R&D departments of large companies, as well as those SMEs and other innovation entities, that is to say, those whose business object focuses on research, technological development and innovation (R+D+i). They all benefit from the scientific and technological services offered by the Park. Companies can be settled in two ways: ascribing to the Park as residents in the same or constructing its own building within the soil of the Park.
