Research Lab Desk

The Research Lab Desk acts as a guide to the different services offered by each of the approximately 30 laboratories at NOI Techpark and assists clients in selecting the most suitable lab for their needs. We do this by analysing the existing needs of the customer and establish the link to the appropriate laboratory or laboratories - including guidance and follow-up support. If the required research activity cannot be covered by our facilities, we will, if desired, network externally with an appropriate regional or international research partner.


Our Laboratory Vouchers are a simple and quick co-financing instrument for using the laboratory services here in NOI Techpark. Companies based in South Tyrol, who want to commission research, analytical studies or product tests in one of our numerous laboratories, or to receive scientific consultancy, can contact us not only to find the right laboratory, but also to finance the activity. Laboratory Vouchers cover 50% to 65% of the costs (depending on company size) for activities up to a total of 15,000 euros. To this end you need to submit a request with the cost estimate provided by the laboratory - you will find the appropriate form below. For amounts over 15,000 euros, it is possible to contact other public institutions, and we can offer advice and help in your choice.

Please note: the application date must always precede the estimated start date of the laboratory service.
