Itaipu Technological Park

Itaipu Technological Park

Until 2003, Itaipu Binacional’s mission was aimed at “generation quality electric energy, through social and environmental responsibility”. Since then, this commitment was broadened in order to also boost economical, touristic, technological and sustainable development in Brazil and Paraguay. Itaipu Technological Park (PTI) was created by Itaipu as a product of the power plant’s expansion, functioning as the right arm to transform the region through research and development of sustainable technologies.


In order to facilitate such mission, PTI promotes the union of companies, research centers, laboratories and teaching institutions. The country is the one to gain from this, achieving a prominent place in the Western region of Paraná, through projects and studies that develop and transform the local reality.

Created in 2003, PTI emerged from the mission enlargement of Itaipu Binacional: “Generating quality electricity, with social and environmental responsibility, boosting the sustainable economical, tourist and technological development, in Brazil and in Paraguay”. In partnership with the Institute of Applied Technology and Innovation (Itai) and the State University of Western Paraná (Unioeste), Itaipu articulated the implantation of an appropriate environment for the technological development. In this context, PTI is characterized as a strategic space for reaching the development proposed by Itaipu in the region and is positioned in the west territory of Paraná as one of the environments that promote innovation.

"Promoting the sustainable territorial development through education, science, technology, innovation, culture and entrepreneurship.".
"Making the Itaipu Technological Park known, up to 2020, as a reference in the promotion of sustainable territorial development".
