Bridge between Science and Technology

Science and Technology Park in Opole provides a possibility for searching and implementation of new technological solutions. It also creates favorable conditions for economic and scientific Development of the Opole region by supporting already existing as well as emerging business initiatives. The sole shareholder of STP is the City Opole.
Park is a collaborative place of science and business. The fundamental idea behind the creation of STP was to operate on behalf as well as development of the whole Opole region, in particular through providing the favorable conditions for the business development with special emphasis on high technology, the development of a knowledge-based economy and IT access possibilities as well, creation of the efficient connections between science and technology, the emergence of innovative solutions by developing an entrepreneurial spirit in an open environment of the partnership between the representatives of the scientific and business community and local authorities as well.

This strong performance helped to implement industry-leading financial aid programs, that were designed to assist in establishing businesses of all kinds, from start-ups to international companies.









dream engine

STP in Opole is launching the project „R & D works on how to efficiently supply the combu-stion engine': The project is funded under Priority Axis 1 - Innovations in the Economy, Measures 1.1 Innovations in Enterprises, Regional Operatlonal Program of the Opole Voivodeship for the years 2014-2020. Actions under the project were designed to create a modified petrol engine, whose high efficiency would reduce fuel consumption and consequently reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The invention of prof. Jarosław Mamala, named „VECR", has been already patented, and the name of the device has been restricted as well. Now STP in Opole is to develop and implement not only a prototype of an innovative control system for such petrol engine, but also to mount it in a test vehicle. The invention provides for adjusting the instantaneous effective compression rafio in the engine cylinder by varying the active combustion volume of the combustion chamber, thereby adjusting the engine power to the instantaneous operating conditions resulting from the load of the drive system. The effective compression rafio conłrol system allows the vehicle to increase its energy efficiency in the travel cycle. Controlling the effective compression rafio of a petrol engine by the way and system according to the invention will not only affect economy and ecology, but will improve the traction index of the vehicle thus improving the safety of the vehicle. The research project will be continued until September 30, 2018.

KOOP project is jointly implemented by the Science and Technology Park in Opole ltd. and the Opole Center for Economic Development. Its main objective is to strengthen the regional business environment institutions and in consequence the sector of small and medium-sized enterprises in opolskie. This will result in the creation or refinement of specialized services offered by IOB, which are based on diagnosed needs of companies. STP in Opole, within the framework of the project, will set up a mechanical-measurement laboratory and buy equipment that will enable the provision of new services to the key branches in opolskie. It will answer the real needs of entrepreneurs. The project is being implemented from 1 January 2016 to 30 June 2018. 


- mechanical tests at ambient temperatures and in high temperature furnaces (400-1000 ° C)
- static and fatigue studies in the range of +/- 100 kN,
- fatigue-tensile and compression tests,
- other dedicated component tests designed on request.


- static tensile test at room/elevated temperature with the required PN-EN ISO 6892-1 and PN-EN ISO 6892-2 standards,
- static compression test,
- durability tests of detachable elements,
- determining the deformative fatigue characteristics of biological, biomedical and plastic materials.

BASLER AG with Mercury 
RT software 

Optical machine for non-contact testing of geometry deformation level. The system allows you to scan objects, with the ability to connect in real time. It scans objects over 0.1 m. With this device you can determine if a given element after a thousand or one million bends will deform.


 Portable instrument for analyzing and sorting metals. Calibration for measuring the following elements: Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ge, As, Se, Sr, Y, Zr, Nb, Mo, Ru, Rh, Pd, Cd, In, Sn, Sb, Te, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Hf, Ta, W, Re, Ir, Pt, Au, Pb, Bi, Th.


- analysis of data from real-time vibration measurements, 
including the ability to record them,
- diagnosis of small and large objects without having to interrupt their work.



STP in Opole has purchased software from ANSYS Inc. Its cost is over nearing half a million zł. The software is used for engineering simulations, which are used by a broad spectrum of engineers and designers from a variety of industries. It allows for rapid and reliable analysis of the design in virtual environments, based on computer simulations, which in turn reduces the time and cost of the project. STP, within the purchased software, provides services in the field of mechanical and flow analysis. Ansys Mechanical enables linear and nonlinear structural analysis including phenomena such as large deformations, contact phenomena, plasticity, hyperinflation. It also allows analysis of constant or variable in time temperature fields including convection, thermal conductivity, radiation, phase change and conjugate fields (acoustics, piezoelectricity, thermal stress). The ANSYS CFD simulation package allows you to perform a full flow analysis of any element. Calculations may be carried out for one or two-phase flows in a flat or spatial arrangement.  


Implementation Hals

Production and implementation halls in the Science and Technology Park in Opole.
Functional and functional assumptions
Hall for rent for production and product  implementations as part of the expansion of STP in Opole.Total area of ​​the hall: 6,000 m2;

The Advanced Technology Building

The Advanced Technology Building is another stage of the expansion of the Science and Technology Park in Opole. Its construction, combined with the integration zone, will commence in 2017. The third building is dedicated to the engineering industry.It will be the place where the Engineering Design Center will be built with a well-equipped IT infrastructure. In addition to the modern space for engineering teams, facilities will be built with TIER III design servers. Up till now there has been no such space in opolskie region. The SCADE system will be installed in the building, which allows intelligent measurement of the power of individual devices. The cost of infrastructure development was estimated at nearly PLN 20 million.
