Italtel and the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Italy’s national research council, signed a new framework agreement to promote research, knowledge exchange and innovation within the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector.

Covering themes such as ultrabroadband networks, telemedicine, big data, energy networks, industry 4.0, smart cities and cybersecurity, the agreement will see a number of programs and initiatives launched.

The programs will mainly focus on the promotion and coordination of research projects on a national and international basis, as well as how to maximize the value of scientific knowledge and share it more widely. Experimental research infrastructures will also be jointly launched by the two organizations.

“CNR promotes research, science and technology knowledge sharing thanks to the teamwork of all the players involved at a national level and on the territory,” said Massimo Inguscio, president of CNR. “A key role depends on the alliance between research institutions, universities and companies. This agreement with Italtel, a highly innovative enterprise of national and international scope but with Italian roots and a strategic presence in the south of Italy, will allow the development of new skills and technologies in fundamental fields and with future growth prospects. From this collaboration will arise opportunities to promote employment, attract talent, and support progress and well-being in fields in which CNR represents Italy in strategic international projects funded by the European Commission with the Horizon 2020 programs."

The framework agreement will run for five years, and the program activities guideline will be led by a committee that includes Stefano Pileri, the president of CNR, and two members appointed by each party.
