logoOpen days to  Innovation

The City and the Province of Turin represent a peculiar territory, rich in technological innovative  traditions, which are both drawing back to its industrial background and  also developing in progress thanks to some new initiatives:   the general goal of the Open days on Innovation is to spread among common people the feeling that one can be not only a user – just knowing how things work in common life – but mainly being the protagonist, that also means paying particular attention to high training in the scientific field.

Start Cup 2006 logo sito esterno

The Second edition of Start Cup Torino Piemonte is just started. The competition for innovative enterprise projects, promoted by the Polytechnic and the University of Turin, involves as well the University of East Piedmont, “Amedeo Avocadro” , as it has been last year. Start Cup is organised by several institutions, such as: I3P, the Incubator of Innovative Enterprises of the Polytechnic, Che impresa l’Impresa!  - a specific section of the so-called University general function, “From the right to education  to the labour market”-, the Office for Scientific Research and International Relations of the University of East Piedmont.
The first term for the delivery of the “Enterprise Project” (“Idea d’ impresa”) is the 3rd of April, while the “business plans” can be produced until the 18th of July 2006. As far as the enterprise project is concerned, the rewards wholly consist in services: thanks to the entrepreneurial training, to the tutoring and to the counselling activities for the draft of the business plan, the “winning ideas” will be able to change into real enterprise plans and to compete for the cash-prizes, envisaged by the second step of  “Start cup”.
In addition to several special and local awards, provided by sponsors, there also are three big cash-prizes for the first three classed business plan, whose amount is respectively 10,000 euros for the first-classed, 7,000 euros for the second one and 5,000 euros for the third one. The three Start Cup winners take then part to the National Award for Innovation , which is something like a “Champions League” for enterprise projects, created at the university level.
