Spanish business school ESADE has opened its business park Creapolis in Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona). The new center will offer more than 20,000 square meters and is located next to ESADE's 1,500-student campus.
ESADE-Creapolis is the first international innovation center created by a business school in Spain. More than 40 companies, including BBVA, pharmaceutical group Esteve, Roca and Flow Lab, have decided to set up their research and innovation departments in Creapolis.
The project has received the support of the Catalan Government, Sant Cugat City Hall and several Spanish banks. The opening was attended by Spanish Minister of Science and Technology, Cristina Garmendia, and Catalan authorities.
