Startups and Spin-offs
FBK encourages and supports the creation of value and the growth of the local socio-economic ecosystem through the generation of new companies (spin-offs) established with the aim of exploiting its intellectual property and the skills developed by its research personnel. Spin-offs represent a channel through which the results of the research reach the market and at the same time, they are an opportunity of employment for highly qualified personnel, such as PhD students and post-docs, which thus remains in relationship with FBK while carries out activities by exploring the knowledge acquired during the training and research pathway. The Foundation stimulates and supports the entrepreneurial spirit of its research staff in order to encourage the generation of new spin-offs.
To date, 34 spin-offs have been created, 26 of which are still in operation. Below are the FBK spin-offs.
