THE BOLOGNA OZZANO

TECHNOPOLE

IRET Foundation hosts and manages the Bologna-Ozzano Technopole, named after the Nobel Prize laureate Rita Levi-Montalcini, focused on Life Sciences.

There are ten Technopoles in Emilia Romagna region, set up thanks to public co-financing to become points of access to the regional innovation ecosystem and to facilitate the dialogue and cooperation between research and industry.
The role of Technopoles is also to engage local communities in projects of development, monitoring citizens’ needs and expectations in all areas related to technology and innovation.

Bologna-Ozzano Technopole promotes RRI (Responsible Research and Innovation) and structures stakeholders engagement initiatives on the basis of the Quadruple Helix approach. The Quadruple Helix is an innovation framework that helps creating a cooperative environment involving not only companies and research centers, but also universities, public institutions and citizens.
Three laboratories belonging to the regional High Technology Network are located within the Bologna-Ozzano Technopole.
Among the services offered we mention:

  • assistance in the development of new products for health and wellness (pharmaceutical sector, biotechnologies, advanced therapies, biomedical devices)
  • assistance in the technological transfer from research centers to industry
  • TRL assessment and risk assessment with reference to the steps to bring a new product to the market.

Health Industry as a driver of territorial development: a role for the Technopole of Bologna – Ozzano dell’Emilia “Rita Levi-Montalcini” site

  • The project for the management of the Technopole of Bologna-Ozzano “Rita Levi-Montalcini” 2023-2025 aims, on the one hand, to make the ‘ordinary’ activities (counter activities, orientation, communication) more and more effective, and, on the other hand, to launch a series of strategic projects that will contribute to achieve the following results:consolidating the Technopole’s position at national and international level as a point of reference for access to the regional innovation ecosystem;
  • assessing and developing strategic partnerships with companies;
  • strengthen the overall value proposition by setting ambitious goals such as contributing to the birth of the first Italian ecosystem on Alzheimer’s disease;
  • improve the ability to dialogue with all stakeholders on health and wellbeing issues;
  • making a concrete contribution to the fight against climate change and the transition to a circular economy, developing the theme of ‘sustainable healthcare’ also in terms of acquiring new skills and dedicated tools.All this is being developed according to a nonprofit scheme that provides for the total reinvestment of any positive operating margin in favour of research and innovation, while taking care of the sustainability of the initiatives through prudent planning.Duration: 30 months, from 01/01/2023 to 06/30/2025

    The total cost of the project is € 599.978,20 of which 50% (€ 299.989,10) will be covered by the ERDF PR ERDF 2021-2027 Action 1.1.7.
