Ivory tower leaning towards society : Iurap.eu in Pisa


What do we produce?
We produce research, first of all. – We are a spin-off that is
working within the university, and is trying to give services for public
administrations and non-profit organisations. – We want to help public administrations
to increase their efficacy and efficiency. – Online communication is very important because we use the website
both as a window on what we do, and also as a learning instrument. For us, it was a kind of natural choice to have .eu
because we are not only focused on Italy, but we’re also open to the European market. – The links between us and Europe are natural. I don’t need to say ‘strong’,
because they’re natural. We are part of this
European university network. – The university is trying to support this
group of researchers and professors, to give and to transfer the knowledge into
the market of public administrations first, and then other, private, operators. – We are an ivory tower,
but we are leaning down to the ground in order to be much closer to society.
