PPNT Gdynia is a space for innovators creating modern products, services and initiatives
PPNT Gdynia: pleasure of discovery, pleasure of creation
The shape of building IV was inspired by ocean liners moored at the lighthouse. The half-round bay windows refer to Gdynia's modernism and the shape of historical arches of the former bus depot.
PPNT Gdynia was founded to actively support and create conditions for the development of visionary initiatives in various fields. It is a place for meetings and exchanging ideas. It is a place for innovators: entrepreneurs, designers, enthusiasts, and organizers. In such an open and inspiring space sharing business and technological knowledge is pure pleasure.
Pomeranian Science and Technology Park Gdynia was established in 2001 as an initiative of the Pomeranian Center of Technology and the City of Gdynia. Building II – architecturally distinct because of the characteristic arches – served as a bus depot from 1938. During the war it housed a German factory and repair workshop of Focke Wulf fighter aircrafts.
The revitalisation and expansion of PPNT Gdynia carried out in 2010-2013 was the largest, after Trasa Kwiatkowskiego, municipal investment partially financed from EU funds. The total cost of the project amounted to approximately PLN 208 million (of which PLN 137 million were funds obtained from the EU, and the remaining part was financed by the City of Gdynia). Since then, the Park has grown to nearly 80,000 m2 (which corresponds to the area of 5 football pitches!) and 246,054 m3 (a capacity similar to that of 100 Olympic swimming pools!). In 2012, the first Parkeurs entered the revitalised complex.
The architecture of the Park refers to Gdynia's modernism, and the four buildings that make up the PPNT complex resemble a group of ocean liners seen from a bird's eye view. Thanks to its aesthetics and location at the main thoroughfare of the Tri-City, the park complex is recognizable throughout Poland.

We are proud of our companies!
Currently, the Park hosts around 250 companies that run technologically advanced projects. Many of them conquer foreign markets, among others, the manufacturers of speech synthesizers from the Ivona family, taken over by Amazon - one of the largest companies in the world. Parkeurs from Mpico Sys. are responsible for creating the world's largest e-paper information wall, which can be admired at the headquarters of the UN in New York. Engineers from SpaceForest are leaders of the international DEWI project, creating solutions used by the European Space Agency. It was in the Park that the first European mixed reality VR studio VISIO, ecological concrete, and the anti-smog apparatus from Andervision were all created. Hundreds of modern information systems and revolutionary patents have been developed here. PPNT Gdynia is also home to municipal units: the Social Innovations Laboratory, the Experyment Science Center and the Library with Passion.
