Our office represents the Autonomous Province of Bolzano and promotes the research and innovation system of the territory. The regional ecosystem includes the Free University of Bolzano - Bozen, Eurac research, Laimburg Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry, Fraunhofer Italia Research, Institute of Innovative Technologies, Eco-research, Klimahaus Agency. The focal point of the ecosystem is the NOI Techpark (NOI - Nature of Innovation): An investment of over 100 million Euros in infrastructure which is now a hub for all R&I stakeholders giving them a place to work together, to inspire each other and to help to increase the competitiveness of individual actors as well as the entire region. The NOI Techpark is a strategic milestone for the multiannual and annual R&I planning with a focus on green technologies, alpine technologies, food, digital and automotive. A second technological park is planned to be open in Bressanone/Brixen, focusing on the automotive sector. South Tyrol is also a leading region in R&I on hydrogen: The Hydrogen Valley South Tyrol is one of 40 lighthouse projects that have been selected by the Mission Innovation as a particularly successful project.
