2nd phase activities (completed)

In particular, the district has initiated and completed the training courses concerning:

  • Three-year research doctorate scholarships
  • Research grants

This approach is the result of an extensive cognitive survey carried out jointly with research institutions and associated companies, whose outcomes have allowed for outlining specific interventions that are to be carried out in the district’s technological areas of reference.
In summary, the interventions activated to follow up the results of the survey, were:

  • PhD scholarships: a cycle of PhD scholarships for five beneficiaries was initiated and concluded, with reference to some design platforms of interest to the district and related research activities undertaken by companies.
  • Research grants: in this case with specific attention to technology transfer policies between different district components and for consequent opportunities for employment growth, actions were completed for activating three cycles of biennial research grants for 52 grant holders.

The results consist in a privileged path that has combined training activities with significant research activities, ensuring maximum visibility outside the business world for both trainees and research groups in order to facilitate new employment and desirable further cooperation: research / business.

Of particular relevance, regarding the action taken by SIIT, we must mention the positive outcome of employment effects, the birth of new business initiatives, and further support for initiatives already started or under development:
