    • Italy has all necessary background to maintain and increase TLC competitiveness, integrating resources from academia, public research centers, manufacturers, operators, and service providers
    • TERIT aims at proposing key guide sectors for research and innovation with an integrated approach of competences
    • The proposed key guide sectors are aligned with the present international technology innovation trends
    • Need for a long-term (  5 years) research plan
    Why TERIT ?
  • 6. TERIT Strategic Objectives
    • To design and foster the development of a TLC echo-system based on advanced technologies for the support of innovative services and applications
