We aim to collaborate with other actors of the regional innovation ecosystem in the development of strategies and actions needed to support the processes of business creation, technology transfer and social innovation, with the intention of increasing the generation of economic value and skilled jobs in our territory.
We have set up a virtuous circle among startups and small- to medium-sized manufacturing companies operating within industrial districts and we have promoted the project of a new regional technology district on advanced manufacturing systems. We work together with local authorities for the construction of new business creation and acceleration poles, and for the realization of initiatives of technological and social innovation in the framework of European Living Labs. We have established systematic cooperation with the major research institutions in Sicily: University of Palermo, Universities of Catania, Messina and Enna, the National Research Institute (CNR), the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF), the National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic development (ENEA) and the Science and Technology Park of Sicily.
The contacts with other European incubators, which have been set up within the European Incubator Forum financed by the European Commission, and the participation in national and international project networks, ensure our commitment to a global perspective in every initiative that we carry out locally and regionally.
