“Together with our colleagues in the Liguria Regional Committee of Piccola Industria”, said President Renato Goretta, “we considered this agreement as strategic because of the opportunity it represents. In fact, by having a facilitating channel, a showcase, on the U.S. territory and beyond, we will be able to allow our companies to face those markets with greater awareness. Vice versa, being privileged interlocutors on the Liguria territory for American Companies and research centers will be able to represent a further possibility for the development of our businesses”.

Giorgio Metta, IIT Scientific Director: “Our institute is international, half of our research staff comes from abroad, we have representatives from more than 60 countries in our laboratories. On the other hand, our roots are in the Liguria territory, which has all the right cards to host a high-profile technological ecosystem. The Partnership with Piccola Industria and MSIC goes precisely in that direction, demonstrating even outside Italian borders that Liguria can play a leadership role in the panorama of High Tech Made in Italy and that our institute can represent a resource for the entrepreneurial sector also at the international level”.
Fabio De Furia, President of Miami Scientific Italian Community noted: “The agreement represents an important piece to our medium and long-term strategy, in addition to continue exporting and internationalizing our knowledge. The Liguria territory can become a catalyst for companies and investments for which we can offer expertise and technologies; an innovative infrastructure platform for the European market also in view of the big Horizon Europe programme”
