Giornata Informativa Programma Tempus IV L ’ esperienza del Politecnico di Milano e della Fondazione Politecnico di Milano Fabrizio Amarilli [email protected] Roma 19 Novembre 2012. First steps.
Set up by the Politecnico di Milano in 2003, the Fondazione pursues objectives and conducts activities that are instrumental and functional to the Politecnico's mission.
Today, after 7 years of growth
in terms of organisation, relations and projects implemented with a great many partners, public and private,
the Fondazione plays a significant role in the innovation of enterprise and of the public sector and in turning academic skills and research to the service of economic development.
Right from the beginning of the industrialisation of Lombardy and Italy, and through the years of post-war rebuilding and industrial development, the Politecnico di Milano has played a fundamental - even unique - role in the birth, consolidation and renewal of a huge number of companies.
Since 1863 – the year of its foundation – it has given strength to the economy and to public administration with innovative research, technological transfer and training of new and highly qualified generations.
This is the deeper meaning of the mission that the Politecnico di Milano has carried out since its origins and which, today, it is strengthening through the Fondazione.
Its objectives are to as far as possible widen the network of players with which to create possibilities, opportunities and initiatives that can help common projects get off the ground, to offer everyone the opportunity to contribute to the development of the 'Italy system' through a direct relationship with the Politecnico di Milano.
A strategic role
Fondazione Politecnico di Milano
The Fondazione is in a key position to act in synergy with the Politecnico di Milano, with universities in general, with companies and with Public Administration, favouring cooperation with all of them.

The Fondazione is built on solid roots: large companies and public administrations have shared its objectives and aims, taking part in common projects to develop
academic research and offer opportunities for innovation to Italian manufacturing.

will enter the market. The Accelerator is setting up a site
in Silicon Valley to bring incubated companies
to greater international operativity.
