SI4LIFE IN NUMBERS
Transferring and integrating innovative technologies aimed at improving the quality of life, focusing on care, rehabilitation and socio-cultural integration of fragile people.
Promoting and building operational synergies and shared research & development strategies between different Ligurian and international players involved in research, innovation, training, production and use of tools, technologies and aids in the field of life sciences.
Focusing technological research on the development of innovative aids useful to compensate disability, assist rehabilitation and promote recovery.
Promoting and enhancing a better qualification of human resources through permanent education and skill development in science and technology, critical factors of success and competitive advantage.
We create a qualitatively inclusive society, for all Fragile People
Our effort focuses on Life Sciences, Biotechnology and Safe Applications for Fragile People.
With the support of our partners, we carry out basic, translational, applied pre-industrial and industrial research projects.
We aim to turn our research findings into a concrete plan, project or product design, to create or improve products, production processes or services.
The ultimate goal is to create aids, prosthetic products, supports, rehabilitation and re-training strategies, innovative teaching methodologies, social integration tools, skill maintenance/retrieval and autonomy for the elderly, the sensory, motor, cognitive and mentally disabled people.
We contribute to the generation and sharing of innovative solutions in the field of Life Sciences, since they hold strategic importance for the competitiveness of each country’s economic system.
Innovation regarding products and processes aimed at improving individual and collective quality of the fragile people’s lives is crucial, since it concerns the ability to face the accessibility and definition of care and the sustainability of the health care system, affected by demographic change (with the increasing average life expectancy) and unpredictable and sudden events (such as pandemics).
