SiS FVG, the Scientific and Innovation System of Friuli Venezia Giulia, represents a networking initiative of 18 research institutions located in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region.
Considered as science and technology “hub”, Friuli Venezia Giulia hosts a large community of international students and researchers, together with a noteworthy network of public and private research institutions.
SiS FVG is a strategic tool for the valorisation of regional scientific and innovation system and for assuring that the territory benefits from the research results in terms of socio-economic development. The Initiative was established in 2016 under the Agreement among the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI), the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) and the Regional Authority of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
• Create a ‘Scientific Network of Excellence’ that will enhance attractiveness and competitiveness of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region at the national and international level
