A city on the move: project phases

The start-up of the Cidade das TIC began in March 2020 with the transfer of the land on which the city will be located by the Ministry of Defence to the University of A Coruña. In July 2020, Xunta de Galicia, through the IGAPE, granted 4.8 million euros in aid for the launch of the Advanced Services Centre (ASC), which will involve the comprehensive refurbishment of one of the buildings in the complex, work on which will begin in early 2021. On this date, the internal refurbishment and development of the complex is also scheduled to begin and will be carried out by the Council of A Coruña.

The refurbishment of the warehouse that will house the ASC also means starting with the Business Park by making available more than 2,600 m2 for housing ICT companies.
