Open Innovation rooted in Research and Education

Trento RISE, core partner of EIT ICT Labs, is the new ICT pole for excellence, located in the Trentino Region, in the heart of one of the most innovative areas of Italy and Europe, where per capita public investments for R&D are higher than the European average, and where a number of research, academic and industrial centers are already established.

Trento RISE has three main objectives: promoting research that produces added value to people, markets and society; offering academic and business training to the most talented students; generating economic development through innovative projects that satisfy important social needs.

Trento RISE is focused on improving life quality through ICT; in achieving this purpose it is supported by a network of thematic labs located all over the Trentino Region, interconnected by a highly sophisticated technological infrastructure, usable for widespread experimentation. Trento RISE puts man at the center of its research, in terms of social relations and all aspects of living: from aging to tourism, from well-being to education.

Today, just a little over a year from its creation, Trento RISE is already one of the major drivers for the transformation of the Trentino Region into a knowledge economy that is competitive at a global level, while ensuring the sustainability of its development and responding to the needs of its society.

Trento RISE is headed by Professor Fausto Giunchiglia, President, and by Doctor Paolo Traverso, CEO. It came into being from the association of two of the top players of the Italian ICT: the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) of the University of Trento, and the Center for Information Technology - Irst of the Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK).
