University for Innovation U4I Foundation
The University for Innovation (U4I) Foundation is a joint initiative of the University of Bergamo, the University of Milano-Bicocca and the University of Pavia.
The U4I Foundation was created to promote scientific knowledge, building a bridge between research laboratories and markets while also favouring the development of new products and services resulting from the synergy between the three universities and attracting international investors.
Specifically, the Foundation promotes the patent portfolio and supports the growth and internationalization of spin-off companies.
Currently it promotes over 20 patents selected and exploitable through transfer or license and more than 30 spin-offs, conducting industrial scouting and providing support for the development of technologies through pre-seed funding.
