ICREA researchers have total freedom to pursue the research that they choose, and are selected solely based on their scientific and academic excellence. However, excellent science often leads to amazing discoveries that can change the way we do things, and the way we think about ourselves and our future.
When that happens, ICREA helps. And it happens very often, since outstanding research at the forefront of knowledge often leads to insights that can change the way we do things.
Bringing ideas to market, by creating a company or by licensing out technologies developed by ICREA research professors is something increasingly important in our daily work.
