The aim of the CERICT is to meet the medium and long-term research needs by the interaction of ICT firms, ICT big enterprises, small software houses, authority and public administrations. The mission of the CERICT is to guide the results of the fundamental research (developed within the academic environment) towards applicative projects realized together with companies, in order to respond to ITC sector’s needs. The technological transfer of the results and the creation of new industrial companies (via spin-offs or specific company build-up) complete the background where the organization carries out its mission.
More than 200 Professors/Researchers/Technicians, from the Partners, are the “virtual” staff of the CeRICT. Structure of virtual connection that combines intellectual, scientific and entrepreneurial resources characterizing which node of the coordination of the activities of the Regional Program of Search. Each Partner works as an “access portal” to the whole set of competencies available in the region, for each specific area.
