Borsa della Ricerca – Salerno, 03-04 October 2022


Link: Borsa della Ricerca

The Borsa della Ricerca is an initiative designed to foster contact between the world of university research (groups, departments, spin offs), startups, companies, incubators and investors (public and private) through an original interaction format, able to concretely favor technological transfer and economic support for research.

Conceived in 2010 to foster contact between the world of university research and investors, over the course of its many editions the Borsa della Ricerca has hosted over 250 spin-offs and departments of 64 Italian universities as well as many large companies and investors.

The Forum is the annual and national appointment of the Borsa della Ricerca where participants have the opportunity to independently manage one or more one-to-one meeting agendas, an aspect that has given rise to hundreds of new collaborations.

Also this year the “Distretto Tecnologico Sicilia Micro e Nano Sistemi” was among the participants, acting as a panelist and managing a full schedule of Forum meetings.

NanoInnovation 2022 Rome, 19-23 September


Link: NanoInnovation 2022

NanoInnovation has always been a unique and unmissable opportunity to connect academia, research and the entrepreneurial system with the aim of presenting and sharing innovative ideas, transferring know-how, allowing the integration of knowledge and experience between different fields of application of nano-biotechnologies.

NanoInnovation is promoted by NanoItaly Association and the Italian Association for Industrial Research (Airi), with the contribution of all co-organizers, supporters and partners of the event.

Due to the persistence of Covid-19 pandemic, also the VII edition of NanoInnovation, scheduled from 19 to 23 September 2022, was held in a hybrid way, meaning most of the initiatives took place both online and in attendance.

This mode was also used for the GaN4AP project symposium co-organized with the Technology District of Sicily Micro and Nano Sistemi and held on the 21st of September.
