Besides the project’s architect, Daniel Smitka, and Marcel Soural, the CEO of Trigema, which implemented the whole project, all those who had played some part in the project also came along. From master builders to Jan Černý, director of Komerční Banka’s Corporate Division which financed the project through a loan, and Petr Kolář, director of the Structural Funds Department of Czech Invest agency, who gave a helping hand during the whole project in dealing with all grant issues.
‘The Science Park is the second technology park which Trigema Group has opened in Roztoky. The response to the Science and Technology Park led us to decide to further develop and support science and research in this field. The new park will add synergy to the current park and provide many new job vacancies for qualified workers from Prague and Central Bohemia,’ noted Trigema’s CEO, Marcel Soural, of the project launch.
After a short tour of the newly built technology park given to guests by project manager, Adam Šachl, the Science Park was opened with a symbolic ribbon cutting ceremony. This act took place on the building’s terrace.
Roztoky SP is even more ambitious than its predecessor and offers researchers not just different types of research laboratories, but also administrative facilities, underground parking spaces and a green roof terrace for moments of rest.
The investment construction of the science and technology park in Roztoky is subsidised by the Operational Programme Enterprise and Innovation – Prosperity programme, which is financed from EU structural funds and the Czech state budget. The objective of the Science Park is to create a beneficial environment for innovative companies and provide them with services and space enabling co-operation between universities or research organisations and the business sphere.
