New smart technologies based on sensors and data collection to improve citizens' quality of life. This is the subject of the research that the Region will initiate with the Senseable City Lab of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, USA, through the feasibility study aimed at opening a detachment of the lab in the Tecnopolo Manifattura of Bologna starting in 2025.

ART-ER, CINECA and OBLOO sign an agreement to attract international startups and scaleups on Big Data and Artificial Intelligence. The goal is to support the creation in the regional territory of an "ecosystem" of innovative companies within the Technopole Manifattura Data Valley Hub, working in close connection with the world of research, industry and institutions in the area, using the potential of supercomputing to develop their business.

The consuls, on an institutional mission to Emilia-Romagna, visited the "Leonardo" supercomputer, accompanied by the president of Cineca and Ifab, Francesco Ubertini, the Data Center of the European Weather Center with Matteo Dell'Acqua, director of the facility.

The United Nations University (UNU) is pleased to announce today that it will establish a research and training institute in Bologna, Italy. The new institute, made possible through the generous support and cooperation of the Italian government and the Emilia-Romagna Region, will catalyse global collaboration and innovation in the utilization of big data and artificial intelligence (AI) to manage human habitat change.

The inauguration ceremony of the Leonardo supercomputer, was held on November 24 at the Bologna Technopole.

The supercomputer LEONARDO, jointly funded by EuroHPC and CINECA on behalf of Italian Minister of University and Research, reached the 4th position on the latest release of the Top500 list of the fastest supercomputers in the world, as announced at the SC22 conference in Dallas, Texas on November 14, 2022. This milestone rewards CINECA’s 50-year commitment to supporting research through HPC, and confirms Italy's role as a strategic asset in the building of the European HPC ecosystem.
