The new business center ESIC will be opened on December 8th on the SpaceBusinesspark in Noordwijk.
The Dutch municipality of Noordwijk is primarily known for the presence there of the European Space Research & Technology Centre (ESTEC), the largest branch of the European Space Agency (ESA). To retain auxiliary activities, especially in the long term, and to create a vital infrastructure for this purpose, the municipality has initiated the Space Business Park, a business estate entirely devoted to knowledge-intensive, mainly aviation and space-travel-related companies. The European Space Innovation Centre (ESIC) is a collective corporation building on this park. Sustainability, flexibility, an industrial allure and an above-average price-quality ratio were important starting points in the design process for this building.
