Free University of Bolzano

Founded in 1997, the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano has in recent years established itself as a research institute of national and international renown. The university’s research projects tackle both global topics concerning the environment, society, the economy and technological innovation as well as deeply rooted issues currently facing the Southern Alps, such as land use, the sustainable use of resources, socio-economic development and lifelong learning. Its research activities are underpinned by interdisciplinary collaboration and interaction with local companies.

The university also runs five PhD programmes to train the next generation of researchers. Externally funded projects at the university are supported by regional, national and international institutions.

At the NOI Techpark, the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano is responsible for establishing those labs where business-relevant research is undertaken. This involves the setting up and expansion of technological research in Alpine technologies, ClimateHouse and energy production, as well as food technology. Research is conducted in the specific areas of agricultural mechanics, ClimateHouse, renewable energy, food engineering, sensor technology, fluid mechanics, computer science and design.

Around 100 researchers and technicians from the university will work at the NOI Techpark between 2017 and 2019.
