How to create innovative services for research and academia - Come nascono servizi innovativi per la ricerca e luniversit


Would you like to know how innovative services are developed for the diverse academic and research world? Imagine an astrophysicist receiving data from all over the world to study the universe, or a composer playing together with artists in different cities. Or a biomedical researcher in her laboratory, or a group of university students. They all seem so different, but there is something that unites them: specific and unique needs related to connectivity and digital services.

If you are curious to discover how to find tailor-made solutions for these diverse needs, we invite you to join our webinar. Thanks to its collaborative model and continuous interaction with the global community through international working groups, GARR is able to anticipate needs and create personalized services.
A unique opportunity to understand how sharing and adopting open solutions in software and ICT can contribute to the technological progress of our country.
