What is the Bit Minorca Centre?
The Minorca Bit Centre (Baleares Innovation and Technology) is a project promoted by the Government of the Balearic Islands, with the support of the Minorca Island Council. It aims becoming a platform for setting up and developing the Information Society in Minorca. The Bit Centre is mainly focused on acting as a magnet for innovative talent by setting up technology transfer networks, as well as promoting regional development, adjusting it to the new business models.
The Bit Foundation is the entity responsible for managing both the Minorca Bit Centre and the Parc Bit. These are closely related spaces where technology-based entrepreneurs and companies are expected to come together in order to promote the technological boost of our islands.
