Through its investments in innovative projects and infrastructure in sectors such as mechatronic engineering, advanced materials, nanotechnology and physics, the Autonomous Province of Trento has become a significant player in Italy’s Space Economy.
The Trentino system is directly involved in the National Strategy Plan for Space Economy through Trentino Sviluppo and HIT – Hub Innovazione Trentino (Trentino Innovation Hub) and boasts contacts with the major industries of the sector as well as important co-working projects with the Italian and European Space Agencies (such as the LISA Pathfinder and Juice missions, for example).
Trentino also hosts the INFN TIFPA National Institute in which it is possible to work in research projects concerning the radiobiological, aerospace and radiation hardness sectors using the high energy proton beam of Trento’s Proton Therapy Centre.
