The City of Turin will participate in the MiSe call (launched last March 3rd), to select projects for the realization of “Casa delle tecnologie emergenti”, innovation and technology transfer centres to support research, experimentation, startups, knowledge transfer to companies.
The House of Emerging Technologies of Turin, for which the selection procedures of private and technological partners are in progress (with calls for tenders published on the website of the City of Torino open until May 29th 2020) has been conceived not as a single physical infrastructure, but as a network of widespread innovation hubs.
The first block, which will be its heart, will be CSI Next, a laboratory designed to hinge on the best digital technologies, new ways of working (co-working), the best systems to communicate, for Turin and Piedmont. An indication contained in the project proposal being defined by the City of Turin in collaboration with the first group of partners identified, namely the University and the Polytechnic of Turin with their respective university incubators, Links Foundation, Torino Wireless, 5T and CSI Piemonte.
The Central House, as well as the other physical hubs that will make up the project, will have the role of testing and validating new emerging technologies: from cloud computing to artificial intelligence, from new technological standards in telecommunications to cybersecurity and blockchain.
“Casa delle tecnologie di Torino” will be grafted onto the Torino City Lab platform and partnership, as regards the development and testing of innovative urban services in strategic sectors such as Smart Mobility and Industry 4.0.
