Liberty Technology Park Cluj has truly shaped itself as a dynamic community. Read more about what we’ve been up to these past few months and what we’re working on now.
The first electric charging unit in Cluj-Napoca
In July we inaugurated the first electric charging unit in Cluj-Napoca. The project, a partnership with Siemens Romania, implied setting up the new charghing unit, Sentron 5TT3201-1KK25, in Liberty’s parking lot and can charge an electric car in 2 hours. The charging unit is available for both residents and the general public.

The event included a premiere of documentaries created by journalists from The Republic of Moldova and Ukraine in collaboration with their colleagues from TVR Cluj began at 19:00 and was followed by a cocktail party.

3rd of October: Liberty on Bike – second edition
Gentlemen’s Race is the main activity of Liberty on Bike – the second edition, co-organized with our friends from Tura de Noapte. It’s a tax and referee free event dedicated exclusively to road bikes which encourages team work. And cycling of course. We had great fun at Liberty on Bike’s second edition! Luckily the weather was on our side and participants were able to enjoy the lovely autumn sun. See pictures here.

These newly arrived companies occupy our 2nd phase: Makronetz, Luminos Software, Cremer, Nordstar Logistik, Voquz, Impact Hub și Regal Beloit.
