Boosting advanced Research Technologies

Last week we hosted IIT – Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italy’s largest research organization with a great panel discussing how to build a stronger bridge between Italy and Silicon Valley.
Scientific Director Prof. Giorgio Metta introduced IIT to a large audience of local research organizations and investors, and was joined by Prof. Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, Prof. Marco Pavone, Prof. Alessandro Ratti, and Prof. Alessandra Lanzara in a panel moderated by Burton Lee.
With 1.900 people coming from more than 70 countries, most of whom are Scientific staff, technicians and PhD students, and a scientific plan focusing on Robotics, Nanomaterials, LifeTech and Computational Science, IIT is one of Italy’s best examples of government investment in tech talent and innovation.
