NOI Techpark Alto Adige/Südtirol: a Technology Park Telling the Tale of a Region
Inaugurated on October 20, 2017, and the result of a major public investment, 124 million euros allocated by the Autonomous Province of Bolzano, the NOI Techpark acts as a bridge between northern and southern Europe.
Inside it are more than 60 incubated startups and technology companies, five research institutes, 30 laboratories and 500 workers. Four sectors form the heart of the tech park: Green, Food & Health, Digital, Automotive | Automation.
Prior to the opening of the technology park, Blum curated Vertical Innovation, a two-and-a-half-year-long journey with the goal of positioning South Tyrol as the place where research and enterprise meet, to spawn innovative business models.
A project centered on a calendar of events in Italy and German-speaking European countries –Germany, Austria and Switzerland – and an information and communications portal, culminating in the publication of a book that validated the South Tyrolean model of technology transfer.
