We support entrepreneurship, technological and social innovation through sensitization, support and empowerment actions. In particular:
We address our action to students, researchers, innovators, to develop their entrepreneurial potential.
In collaboration with the University of Palermo, we host the course “Entrepreneurship and work in the knowledge economy": wich is targeted at all university students and aims to help them access the labour market through the design of pathways for business creation. It is possible to contact us for assistance in the development of your business model and to get support in finding partners and financial resources for your business plan. Startups, after the technical and economic feasibility check, can access the premises of the incubator on favourable terms, as well as using our technological laboratories facilities and availing of the technical and managerial advice of our staff.
We foster innovation processes in small- and medium-sized enterprises.
We promote and actively participate in research and development projects with the aim of supporting the innovation capacity of small and medium-sized enterprises. In addition to the access to free services of the EEN Network, through specific cooperation agreements companies can use our technology labs and participate in programs to develop new products according to Open Innovation models, in which the collaboration and flow of knowledge among small and medium-sized enterprises, start-ups, research labs and large industrial groups is particularly favoured.
We promote the Sicilian entrepreneurial ecosystem
We are active in a number of initiatives for the dissemination of the entrepreneurship culture to encourage the growth of an ecosystem for territorial sustainable development based on innovation and enterprises. We offer our collaboration to local stakeholders who wish to promote the optimal conditions for the development of their entrepreneurial potential in the perspective of smart specialization.
