Future Bio and Circular Economy Ecosystem in the Turku region: The Smart Chemistry Park
Smart Chemistry Park is an innovation platform and a cluster for SME’s within the fields of chemistry and technology in the Turku Region, Finland. The Smart Chemistry Park concept (the idea, the preparation work and the implementation) has been created by Turku science Park in tight collaboration with the SME’s.
Also the local universities and polytechnics have been tightly involved, bringing on the high level chemistry know-how to the community of entrepreneurs in Smart Chemistry Park.
The Smart Chemistry Park started to operate in January 2015. Smart Chemistry Park is located in Raisio, a neighboring city 13 km way from Turku.
Raisio used to have important chemical industry for Turku city region (Raisio Chemicals Ltd, Ciba Specialty Chemicals Ltd, BASF), but after a company buy-out the chemical industry facilities where left empty.
When looking for a suitable place for Smart Chemistry Park, the Raisio empty chemical industry facilities where just appropriate for what we were looking for.
Today 10 companies have their site in Smart Chemistry Park in Raisio.
