Construction of technology park could start this year

Work on the Central European Park for Innovative Technologies (CEPIT) in the Bratislava suburb of Vajnory could start this year, said Axel Albrecht, a representative of CEPIT MANAGEMENT, on March 19, after signing an agreement of cooperation with the Slovak Academy of Sciences.

This year, the necessary road infrastructure and water and electricity networks should be laid, while construction should start next year, and the first three buildings could be built by the end of 2008. If no serious problems arise, the whole technology park should be finished within ten years, Albrecht predicts. He said that the park would accommodate 30,000 people who would work, teach, study and live there. The project expects to create 7,000 new jobs.

The CEPIT science and technology park will be the only centre in Central Europe whose aim will be the support and application of cutting-edge technology in the field of electrical engineering, micro-technologies, IT and micro- and nano-electronics. A technical university on the future site will be built to train and educate future centre employees.
