Abuja Technology Village Science and Technology Park (STP) and Special Economic Zone is poised to become the preferred destination in Africa for research, incubation, development, commercialisation and outsourcing across its focus sectors of Information and Communications Technology, Biotechnology, Minerals Technology and Energy Technology. The Park offers a balanced lifestyle environment for businesses to operate with competitive advantage. Tenant businesses will have access to Africa’s largest consumer market, proximity to every part of Nigeria and easy access to key global destinations. The STP is strategically located adjacent Nelson Mandela Institution’s African University of Science and Technology (AUST) and close to other Science and Technology Institutions. These institutions collectively form a huge economic cluster along an emerging knowledge strip connecting the Abuja City Centre and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
The Abuja Technology Village masterplan sets out to create an environment built to the highest global standards of design, construction and sustainability. Key to this concept is the development of mixed-use facilities within a sizeable Green Space setting that comprises natural vegetation and habitats as well as contemporary urban landscape features encompassing outdoor recreational facilities.
