Founded on the premise of creating a collaborative, interactive, and flexible business environment, Palestine Techno Park is an engine of growth and clustering in the technology sector

The Palestine Techno Park (PTP), established in 2016, is a non-profit research and innovation park aimed at supporting the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Palestine. PTP provides needed physical infrastructure, entrepreneurship programs, Innovation Labs and Hubs, and Research and Development initiatives whose objectives are to introduce and promote science and innovative technologies, commercialize technological knowledge, and bridge the gap between the business sector and academia.   

Palestine Techno Park is mutual cooperation between Birzeit University and the Palestine Tech Forum. Birzeit University made a generous contribution donating 20,000 m2 of its land for the construction of the Park, while the Tech Forum developed the idea and concept note.  In 2016, the Republic of India through the Representative Office of India in Ramallah, made a grant of 12 million USD towards the infrastructure and the construction of the first flagship building at the Park, Palestine India Techno Park. The PalestineTechno Park was inaugurated in 2016 under the patronage and in the presence of H.E. President Mahmoud Abbas, President of the State of Palestine, and H.E. Mr. M.J Akbar, the Minister of State for External Affairs to The Republic of India.

In 2017, PTP became a full-time member of the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation (IASP) and leverages its membership by connecting with key players in the ICT sector worldwide, collaborating with other members to achieve best practices, while gaining international visibility. In addition, the Palestine Techno Park is also a member of the Arab ICT Incubators and Techno Parks Association (ARTECNET). ARTECNET has offered Palestine Techno Park the platform to advance its incubation tools and methodologies and practices and collaborate among its network members.
