Technology parks

The objective of the São Paulo Technology Parks System (SPTec) – created by the Secretariat of Economic Development, Science and Technology – is to promote and motivate economic and technological development in several regions, by attracting investments and creating new knowledge-intensive firms. SPTec is the largest Brazilian support program for the implementation of technology parks.

Among the main parks established in the state are the São José dos Campos Technology Park, one of the most advanced in Brazil; the Sorocaba Technology Park, located in one of the most populous cities in the interior of São Paulo, and the Piracicaba Technology Park, situated in one of the main sugarcane producing regions. These parks cover areas such as aeronautics, automobiles, information technology, biotechnology, energy and agricultural technology, among others. About 30 other parks will be established in the coming years.
