The High Technology Networks operates within 6 thematic platforms Each platform is conceived in order to gather regional competences ……….
In the platform governance there is a balanced contribution of pth achademicor reserach component as well as industrial expert chosen by the entrepreneurial associations Aster is providing coordination and support to operation , Additional contribution is more and more delivered by private Innovation center available in the region
To Identify the enterprises research demand . To identify and promote a new tool to facilitate SME to get the right research support To match demand and research offer increasing the productive systems alliance with regional research and innovation . To develop an “ OPEN INNOVATION “ business model To foster the development of new highly knowledge-based productive systems i.e a “knowledge community ” To develop and enlarge the regional network inclusive of units engaged in industrial research and technology transfer
This is the cumulated portfolio in the last 12 months 300 projects 31 M€ ( 44 M€ ) portfolio 41 % of tem have been directly supported by companies without any incentive.
Multi-sectoriality : First and foremost a metadistrict has to cover a range of sectors and disciplines not only along a given value chain (e.g. manufacturer of the machines, large scale producer, retail shop etc.), but should also include ancillary support services (e.g. research and development, experimentation, etc.). Geographic location : Although the concept of metadistrict assumes that old-fashioned local boundaries are no longer a key feature, it is still true that a personal relationships and partnership between enterprises still rests on a physical geographic location Significance : The metadisctrics have to operate within industrial and scientific research areas that are relevant in Lombardy. Leadership : The presence of an industry or market leader in Lombardy who has the credential and capacity to represent the sector is another key feature for a metadistrict.
Platform Constructions and the High Technology Network in Emilia-Romagna Region
The Constructions Platform focuses on industrial research and innovation for the entire construction sector, especially on:
high performances and environmental sustainability for new buildings and for the recovery of building heritage.
The most targeted Platform intervention fields are:
new construction methods, in terms of urban design and planning, materials, components, building equipment and processes, building and cultural heritage maintenance and remodeling
museum and exhibition design, restoration and maintenance of historical and artistic monuments and its economic valorization.
