Taguspark’s primary activity is the installation, development, promotion and management of the largest science and technology park in Portugal, as well as the provision of the support services required for its operation. It occupies a total area of 360 hectares, 150 of which are occupied by around 160 companies and 16,000 professionals who work at and visit the park daily.
The Knowledge City, located in the Municipality of Oeiras, offers an ecosystem unique to Portugal, bringing together companies, research centres and the local university. The quality of this interface allows Taguspark, organisations, entrepreneurs and startups to develop marketable solutions with export and internationalisation potential.
In 2018, Taguspark began a process of upgrading the buildings to 21st-century standards, creating exceptional working conditions for science and technology-based companies and businesses.
The year 2018 also marked the start of Taguspark’s cultural transformation and the adoption of a strategy for growth and community involvement, which resulted in the Rumo ao Parque Mais Cívico da Europa (Becoming Europe’s Most Civic-Minded Park)project, which aims to involve and promote good environmental practices, and the creation of the Museum of Urban Art.
In 2021, Taguspark took on a new positioning as the Knowledge City, which embodies the new situation here – a city of multicultural work with a strong civic and artistic identity.
Taguspark was created at the government’s initiative in 1992, with the involvement of the Municipality of Oeiras, as a central part of a municipal development strategy (today embodied in the Oeiras Valley concept) for attracting technological companies with the aim of transforming Oeiras into a unique region of development in Portugal.
