We promote and enhance the know-how and intellectual property of Trentino research institutions through agreements and collaborations with economic operators including SMEs, corporations, venture funds for the development of technologies and products. To date, we identified over 200 new technologies created by our scientific founders.
We support our research institutions in liaising with companies, private investors, non-profit operators and PA interested in innovating their business through the skills and technologies of the Trentino research system. All profits are reinvested in research activities.
One of the main focuses of our activities is the technological reinforcement of intelligent specialization areas, identified by the Autonomous Province of Trento as part of the Smart Specialization Strategy 2021-2027. We contributed to drafting the following content:
- Sustainability, mountains and energy resources
- ICT and digital transformation
- Health, nutrition and lifestyle
- Smart industry
Technologies and skills portfolio
Research and technologies for nutritional characteristics of several agrifood products using modern platforms and infrastructures, e.g, metabolomics, stable isotopes, sensory panels. Molecolar tools and statistical models applied in the field of molecular ecology to understand the distribution and adaptation of native and alien species (plants, animals, and insects).
State-of-the-art core facilities and cutting-edge research, including Armenise-Harvard and Dulbecco-Telethon laboratories, organised as a R&I centre designed to unravel and tackle the key issues in cancer biology & genomics, cell & molecular biology, microbiology & synthetic biology, and neurobiology & development, taking advantage of and developing new bioinformatics and computational biology tools.
