- We support companies so that they can take full and timely advantage of the most promising innovations that can facilitate economic growth and create new jobs.
- We offer valuable investment opportunities for funds, business angels, venture capital.
- We disseminate the culture of innovation in society.
We believe in the women and men who do research in our institutions. We work to unleash the power of innovation.
We want to contribute to the progress of our society by promoting sustainable and responsible development.
We facilitate the development of the culture of lively entrepreneurship that understands the value of contamination between disciplines, knowledge and people.
Innovation happens when an invention is transformed into a result and generates value for everyone: people, businesses, territories.
