Turku Science Park (spearhead project, including Master Plan)
Over a million squares of new construction, investments of several billions, over 10 000 new jobs and apartments for 20 000 new Turku residents with one hour distance away from the capital region.
The Turku Science Park spearhead project is one of the city’s three spearhead projects and an important component in developing the appeal and competitiveness of Turku. The objective is to use new networked operating models to create an internationally attractive and boldly experimental cluster of expertise with ver-satile functions and logistic appeal.
Reaching from the university campus to the Kupittaa business cluster and further to Itäharju, this area is the city’s most significant growth centre of know-how and high technology jobs. Seamlessly connected to the city centre, it is attractive because of its diverse network of operators and know-how and logistically excel-lent location. The One Hour Train initiative will connect the area also with the capital region’s commuter belt in the future.
