We rely on people and their talents, on the ability to understand challenges, interpret needs and propose solutions, also thanks to the ability to network

We are University: innovation also involves training, research and dialogue with society.
We are system thinkers: to see effects, distant impacts, to place a technology in the framework of complex industrial relations, to understand the needs of the users of innovation.
We are solution oriented: to read and interpret the needs of the productive sector and of the society at large
We value people's creative ability.
We practice teamwork: within CIRI FRAME and University of Bologna, the Innovation Ecosystem of Emilia-Romagna in partnership with international research technology organisations such as the Fraunhofer Gesellshaft and others

Our activities

Development of innovative materials: we study mainly carbonaceous materials (such as biomass) with mineral components. We are working to patent at least 2 materials in the next 5 years. We call them C2G: Second Generation Carbons (second generation carbon-based materials).
Emissions reduction analysis: we develop system analyzes and models for the evaluation of environmental benefits with particular attention to negative emissions, carbon removal and carbon credit certification.
Open Innovation: co-creation of activities on an industrial scale (TRL>5) in collaboration with industrial stakeholders and possible end users of the innovation
Training and Education:  we train new talents and cultivate specific skills: students, employees and collaborators of the companies that work with us
