History
We draw upon more than 30 years of experience supporting knowledge-based entrepreneurship and business operations. It all began in 1986 where a group of local companies and organizations founded Science Park Aarhus A/S on the initiative of the Municipality of Aarhus’ business liaison. The mission was to encourage more researchers to found companies. Several expansions later Science Park Aarhus A/S merged with IT-huset Katrinebjerg in 2007 under the name INCUBA Science Park A/S.

Today INCUBA consists of three big clusters in Aarhus at Katrinebjerg (IT), in Skejby (Health) and on Navitas (Cleantech). The original facilities at Gustav Wieds Vej are fully rented out to Aarhus University.

Company
INCUBA A/S is an independent limited company. It has more than fifty shareholders, with the two largest being The Aarhus University Research Foundation and the public limited company Schouw & Co.
