e TecK is on the threshold of driving Trinidad and Tobago toward a knowledge-based economy with the construction of the Caribbean’s first Science and Technology Park, the Tamana InTech Park.
This Science and Technology Park will be central to the creation of the leadership that will shape the next wave of development and, by extension, the quality of life in Trinidad and Tobago. Located in the North-East of Trinidad on a former US airbase at Wallerfield, it will be the hub for new communities and a central business district like no other. Its impact and influence will stretch beyond its boundaries into the very core of our socio-economic advancement, moving the country from development based on trade to development based on innovation, knowledge and technology.
As the 1,100-acre site is being developed to meet the needs specific to this high-tech Park, Tamana will be home to major global technology players and the place where groundbreaking and innovative ideas will emerge. Significantly, Tamana, unlike any other Science and Technology Park, will have a unique blend of environmental appeal (30% green) along with industrialisation and technological capabilities. The Park’s largest tenant, The University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT), will provide the necessary synergy between industries and academia in the areas of industry-sponsored research and managing innovations and intellectual property.
A member of the United Kingdom Science Parks Association (UKSPA) and the International Association of Science Parks (IASP), Tamana has been segmented into four areas to foster a cluster environment:
- Information Communication and Technology (ICT)
- Knowledge-based and High Value Manufacturing:
- Agro Industrial
- Mixed Use
With a deliberate focus on the Tamana brand along with Trinidad and Tobago’s bold statement that “We Are Next”, Tamana will attract a cadre of foreign investors to world-class quality development. Trinidad and Tobago will be the premier address in the Caribbean for US, Canadian and European businesses.
