The valorisation of a territory and its production fabric requires not only an excellent training system, but also a research and scientific development system supported by technological transfer institutions.
Thanks to daily contacts with many qualified scientific institutions located in the region, especially in Trieste, companies established in this district are at the very heart of a network of advanced training institutions and research centres with highly specialised human resources.
