The Emilia-Romagna innovation ecosystem

At the heart of the Emilia-Romagna innovation ecosystem lies a large number of public and private actors who invest their resources and collaborate in the exploitation of research results, new knowledge development, adoption of new technologies and innovation across all economic and social sectors.dati_ricerca.png

In particular, the role of Emilia-Romagna's universities and research centres is crucial for development of the production system: knowledge, research and innovation are key factors for economic and production development in this region, where expertise and the diffusion of knowledge ensure competitiveness of the regional economic system in the face of change, with enhancement of regional areas of specialisation on the world market and concurrent consolidation of native production sectors within the territory.

The economic system’s strong commitment to innovation:

  • the number of R&D personnel as a percentage of the working population is
    higher than the Italian average
  • Emilia-Romagna exceeds Italian and EU28 averages in terms of patent applications per million inhabitants (EPO 2014)
  • the number of Science & Technology graduates in the region per 1,000 inhabitants aged 20-29 is higher than Italian and Europeanaverages

The regional university system is composed of the universities of Bologna, Modena and Reggio Emilia, Ferrara and Parma, with decentralized campuses in the other main cities. In addition, Piacenza is home to the private Catholic University and Milan Polytechnic.
