A call will be launched in 2019 for the support of scientific research projects conducted by research bodies based in the Genoa area. This call seeks to be an instrument serving to improve planning and provide assessment and selection activities more structured to the growth in the regional research system in Genoa, fostering collaboration and integration among research institutes, with the aim of facilitating relations between research and the world of production.

In 2018 Compagnia launched an innovative call compared to its usual as it was intended to finance research projects, presented by centres and working groups based in and originating from the whole country, provided their main objective was the Piedmontese territory. The call focuses on applied research ideas in the field of social sciences that address the consequences of demographic changes (birth crisis, population aging). The projects aim to test innovative solutions for the region’s critical issues and at the same time encourage collaboration between public bodies, companies and the third sector. In 2019 the call will be managed and the selected projects will be launched.
