Fondazione U4I – University for Innovation

Fondazione U4I – University for Innovation was founded in 2017 by the three Universities of Bergamo, Milano-Bicocca and Pavia as a gateway to the market for innovations developed within the three founding universities.

Able to count on an important critical mass of knowledge, we are the best tool to support the technological maturation of the most promising ideas, to enhance them with the most appropriate form of legal protection, to bring them closer to the market through technology transfer actions such as licensing and/or spin-off creation, and to bring them to the attention of possible investors.

We support innovation that generates value for the territory and society.
