Applicants for establishment in the park as post-growth companies mainly include small and medium technology and knowledge-based companies, research and development units and research centers.
The fields of activity of applicants for admission can be applied - developmental research (R&D), engineering design, reverse engineering, optimization and quantitative - qualitative product growth, technology development and transfer, and providing specialized services.
Companies based in technology incubators can continue their activities in post-growth stage when growth period ends. To evaluate these companies for admission to post-growth period, the sum of points of last two evaluation periods of the growth period (second and third year) is criterion and there is no need to re-evaluate.
