The INC plans to open the doors to its new headquarters in Reus in 2012, on a 4,500 square meters site in the new Technology Park. Strategically located next to the airport and Reus' major universities and teaching research hospitals, the new INC home is part of the future Techno Park, a new regional catalyst designed to help transform the region to a scientific research hub on health and nutrition. The park offers up to 50,000 square meters of infrastructural development in several categories, such as healthcare, nutrition, pharmaceutical, and agriculture.
The new INC Headquarters involve a 2,500 square meters Arboretum of nut and fruit trees, a place for visitors to observe and study a variety of trees and vineyard, including both native and non-native species, in collaboration with the Institute for Food and Agricultural Research and Technology (IRTA). Given the climate conditions of the area, we will be able to plant 12 species of trees (4-5 trees per specie). Plantation is forecast on March/April 2011.
Our heartfelt thanks to the members and institutions that support the New INC Home.
