About us

In achieving the regional development objectives of the Nuclear Physics project and the economic capitalization on the research of the whole Magurele platform, Magurele Science Park is a vital project.

The feasibility study, made with the support of the International Science Parks and Areas of Innovation, demonstrates the imminent necessity of the investment, but also the obligation of building the park in the immediate vicinity of the ELI-NP project, in Magurele, a town recognized by the European Physical Society as a Historic Site for Physics.

Magurele Science Park will allow the convergence of the most competitive research fields of the Romanian research, respectively of the innovative entrepreneurship, beginning with the European impact project ELI-NP.

This will contribute to the development of a location and an attractive ecosystem for the institutions and national and international knowledge-based companies and, as a consequence, will greatly add to the economic development at both regional and national levels.

Magurele Science Park Localisation

Magurele Science Park will be developed in 3 phases. The first phase will consist of the planning the building of the park on a surface of 5.5 hectars, the investment amounting to more than 36 million Euros. During the first phase, the following parts will be built: Center of Technology Transfer, Innovation Center, Museum of the Future, and Recreation Center. The second phase is intended at progressively expanding the park up to a surface of 20 hectars, within 5 years. During the third phase, we estimate an expansion of the park up to 30 hectars.
Narcis Constantin, Mayor of Magurele: “Magurele Laser (ELI-NP) and Magurele Science Park are the largest research, innovation, and development projects in Romania. The high level of knowledge in our city is due to the scientists and researchers in Magurele. But the possibility of building a science park that would enable the technology transfer could be due to us, all of us.”
