Our story

We are a group of researchers who wish to transfer research carried out in the university environment to the innovative design of the territory and its community.
The team was born within the European research project EIT Climate-KIC SATURN (2018-2021) – of which the University of Trento, Fondazione Edmund Mach and Hub Innovazione Trentino were partners (https://eventi.fmach.it/saturn). We address the design of resilient territories through a holistic and inclusive approach offering our clients tailor-made products and services.
