For the region

The redevelopment of an important former industrial district in the North of Bologna is an opportunity to restore value to the abandoned area, increase its liveability and sustainability, bringing new resources and expertise focused on high impact issues which affect the city's quality of life, such as forecasting extreme-weather events.     

The access to knowledge deriving from Supercomputing allows for advance reliable prediction of the risks associated with extreme-weather events, identifying compensatory measures and reducing economic and social impact.     

This citadel of science is an important node for development and metropolitan attractiveness. Thanks to its strategic location at the door of the city of Bologna and for the relationship it activates and feeds at a local and international level, the Technopole will become a strategic junction for the entire country.
