What is the PTA
The Parque Tecnológico de Andalucía (PTA) [Andalucia Technology Park], located in Málaga, is a high-quality location in which to set up SMEs and large businesses that are innovative, respectful of the environment and geared towards manufacturing, advanced services and R+D.
It is located in exceptional natural surroundings and equipped with infrastructures and advanced services of the highest quality, in which an optimum balance between large multinationals, university institutions and small and innovative companies has been reached. The park caters to everyone's needs, offering everything from 25m2 offices for rent to buildings measuring thousands of square metres and plots from 2,500 m2.
The origins of the PTA date back to 1988, when the Junta de Andalucía (Regional Government of Andalucia) and the Málaga City Council signed an agreement to create a Technology Park.
Four years later, in December 1992, the Parque Tecnológico de Andalucía, located in the district of Campanillas, in the city of Málaga, was officially inaugurated.
In September 1995, an agreement was signed with the International Association of Science Parks (IASP) to set up its world headquarters at the PTA.
Since 1998, the Park has also housed the headquarters of the Asociación de Parques Científicos y Tecnológicos de España [Association of Science and Technology Parks of Spain] (APTE).Since 2005, it has also been the headquarters of the Red de Espacios Tecnológicos de Andalucía [Andalucian Technology Network] (RETA).
