The project involves the reconstruction of a building at ul. Bankowa 5 in Katowice and a functionality change of some of its rooms in order to create a space that will facilitate the completion of new projects initiated by the participants of the Silesian innovation ecosystem, i.e. members of the academic community, entrepreneurs and representatives of local self-government units.

spinPLACE Centre for Creativity and Coworking will contribute to the comprehensive education of the youth, involving the development of soft skills and practical preparation for the creation of their own jobs in the future. It will be the place of group work, popular science lectures, and a centre for entrepreneurship and business training. The public character of the space and the events organised within are to promote the exchange of thoughts and experiences.

spinPLACE is the place of:

  • creative networking;
  • creative ‘non-work;’
  • creative and artistic activities and meetings;
  • presentation of research results and promotion of innovative solutions;
  • incubation of spin-offs and start-ups;
  • workshops and project prototyping.
