Technology centres contributed 914 million to regional GDP in last decade
Basque technology centres have contributed 914 million euros to the region's GDP in the last ten years. During that time they invested 230 million euros, according to a report commissioned by IK4 and Tecnalia research corporations to mark the 25th anniversary of the creation of this technology infrastructure network.

The contribution made by Basque technology centres has increased year by year. In 2006, for instance, the increase over 1997 was 45%. Furthermore, according to the figures released, for every euro the Basque authorities have spent on them, the centres have yielded on average 2.39 euros for the Basque regional GDP.

Today, more than 2,500 people work at the region's technology centres, more than 10% of the workforce holding doctorates.
