Katowice gaming and technology HUB

Katowice has been consistently transforming since the 1990s, and the Nikiszowiec district has changed from a workers’ district into a centre of social and economic life. Nikiszowiec has been designated “the New Technologies District” where the premises of the Wieczorek coal mine will become the Katowice Gaming and Technology Hub.

The New Technologies District was considered a project of strategic importance for the European Funds for Silesia 2021-2027 program due to its spatial and financial scope as well as  the intended use.
