Logo PoC Instrument

The PoC (Proof of Concept) Instrument initiative stems from an agreement between Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo and five Italian Universities (Politecnico di Torino, Università degli Studi di Torino, Università del Piemonte Orientale, Università degli Studi di Genova e Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II).

The aim of the initiative is to support and fund the evolution of research developed by Academics, and help it move through the stages of a patented idea to a market-ready prototype.

The five calls are open to researchers from the five Universities part to the agreement, and will run from January 2020 to November 2021.
