Creating the environment necessary for growth.

Creating innovative businesses

The creation of innovative, technology­based businesses is a specialized task that requires multidisciplinary teams and a high level of specialised knowledge.
Entrepreneurs may be scientists, researchers, academics, technologists, business people, etc., with innovative ideas geared toward the marketplace, but who need customised, confidential support to develop their business project.
Their projects often require heavy investment and are related to emerging sectors, which implies greater risk.

In order to encourage and support the creation of new businesses, we offer temporary location in one of the modules of the incubators located in Miramón Technology Park,Donostia, and in the industrial area of Azitain in Eibar.

We have more than 600 m2 of incubator divided into 15 modules of different surfaces, as well as meeting rooms and public areas.

Creating nanotechnology companies

The incorporation of the nanosciences, microand nanotechnologies as a strategic area of industrial diversification in science and technology policy in the Basque Country, was created within the framework of the la Estrategia nanoBasque (NanoBasque Strategy) with a dual purpose. On one hand, to exploit the great potential of applying these technologies in nearly all of the industrial sectors in the Basque Country, and, on the other hand, to generate creation of new companies based in technology, born specifically to develop their activity with applications based on these technologies.

BIC Gipuzkoa Berrilan contributes to the creation of new nanotechnologybased businesses through the Convenio de Colaboración (Partnership Agreement) of 2010, with CIC nanoGUNE, Centro de Investigación Cooperativa de Nanociencias yNanotecnología del País Vasco (Cooperative Nanosciences Research Center of the Basque Country).

The agreement aims to create synergies between the two institutions and promote search as well as business development projects with a scientific and technological base in the area of nanoscience. Projects that can be developed in nanoHabia.

NanoHabia, incubator for new nanotechbased companies, located on the third floor of Nanogune, has an area of 156m2, divided into 5 separate spaces, public areas and meeting rooms.

Creation of biotechnology businesses

The biotechnology sector is in a phase of significant growth, though the strengthening and growth of the sector will depend on technical and human
With this objective a specialized incubator has been created in the sector of Biotechnology, Bioengineering and Health that allows the transfer of knowledge from universities, technology centers, businesses, etc. supporting the creation of new companies in the biotechnology sector and allowing, in turn, diversification of the Gipuzkoan industrial fabric, mainly from industrial sectors to new business lines related to bioscience and biotechnology, contributing to the strengthening and growth of the sector. The technical objectives of the bioincubator are: 1. the transferof knowledge, and 2. diversification.

Customised to the maturity of the project or company, advanced services overing the entire value chain of the biotechnological product or service will be provided

  • Preincubation services.
  • Coordination of infrastructure and large scientifictechnological teams.
  • IP Advisory Services and licenses.
  • Corporate services.
  • Financial services.
  • Horizontal services.

The Bioincubator has a total of 774.12 m2, which are divided into the following areas:

  • 8 modules / independent laboratories
  • 1 Shared laboratory
  • 1 Cultivation room
  • 1 PCR room
  • 1 Refrigeration room
  • 1 Hardware room
  • 1 Wash room
  • 1 “Soft” area
  • 2 Meeting rooms
  • 1 Office

All of the individual laboratories are equipped with laboratory furniture, as well as a separate room that can be set up as an office. Additionally, the shared laboratory has all the instruments and equipment necessary to bring a task from the embryonic phase through completion, such as extraction cabinets, a cellular cultivation room, PCR, centrifuge, freezers, scales, etc.
