Research Technologies

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.

Research Technologies

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
