The first two phases of the project seek the ingenious reconversion of the former Libertatea furniture factory and require an initial investment of 20 million euros.

Designed on the site of the former furniture factory Libertatea, Liberty Technology Park Cluj reinvents its identity by reinterpreting the industrial heritage and transforming it in an environment designed to fulfill the needs of a company from the IT&C and R&D industries. Architecturally the development follows the reconversion of the existing spaces into a technological park that will reflect the energy of the tech companies driven by the human potential that Cluj-Napoca has to offer.

Liberty Technology Park Cluj is the first technological park in Romania, a concept designed to
connect companies and people from similar domains in an interdisciplinary approach that will
generate innovation and progress in the IT&C and R&D industries.
