Tecnópole participated in a Program of Cooperation with Industrial and Technology Parks called COPIT, a state-level action to improve the competitiveness of companies and research centres located in these areas through cooperative arrangements among them, during the life of the project in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
A total of 20 Science and Technology Parks and 28 Industrial Estates across Spain participated in the COPIT program, whose main objective was to establish a partnership network between companies and organizations founded in these areas, based on the sharing of knowledge and technology offers, with the ultimate aim of promoting joint projects.
Tecnópole , along with this initiative, compiled the company and technological centres within the park and put together a catalogue of sectorial character that was sent to companies located in Galicia industrial areas, in order to get trade agreements and launch joint projects. In Galicia, the initiative involved the establishment of cooperative bonds between Tecnópole, and the Industrial Estates of San Cibrao das Viñas (Ourense) and Sabón (Arteixo, A Coruña). Later on, the Industrial Estate of Bergondo(Bergondo, A Coruña) joined this initiative.
The experience of Tecnópole as coordinator of the program in Galicia was endorsed by its selection as a success in 2009 and 2010 at state level - due to the contacts and agreements established between companies-.
The program is funded by the Ministerio de Industria, Turismo y Comercio through FEDER funds and collaborates with the Asociación Española de Parques Científicos y Tecnológicos de España (APTE), the Coordinadora Española de Polígonos Industriales (CEPE), the Escuela de Organización Industrial (EOI) and the Empresa Nacional de Innovación (ENISA).
