A fast and encrypted communication network in Milan, thanks to quantum technology; advanced and sustainable materials for biomedical and manufacturing.

These are the two objectives of innovation that led to the signing of a specific Agreement between the Lombardy Region and the Politecnico di Milano, within the framework of the interventions for the economic recovery of the

Lombardy Region has chosen to focus on the development of research, innovation and technology transfer thanks to new collaboration agreements with universities.

Through these the Region has allocated altogether 13.5 million euros for the 8 Lombard public universities.

Each of these are allocated part resources of €1,687,500, to cover up to 50% of the cost of the interventions. As part of the Agreement of collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano, the contribution is 40,53% of the total cost of 4,163,400 euros.

The two objectives of the Agreement with the Politecnico di Milano

As regards the Politecnico di Milano, the Agreement of collaboration with the Lombardy Region provides for two initiatives, the subject of the agreement approved by the Regional Council on 10 March: POLIQI – POLItecnico Quantum Infrastructure, or an infrastructure for

The first initiative aims to create a quantum communication network, which develops in Milan’s urban area for a maximum diameter of 25 km. The new network uses standard telecommunications optical fibres already installed in the territory. It is therefore a safe and fast infrastructure for data transmission and sharing.

The operational quantum security network will allow the development and testing of the most advanced security technologies for data transfer applications in financial, administrative, health and intelligence. It will also allow you to experiment with new communications and quantum technologies (qubit handling); experiment with new hardware and software solutions for the creation of encryption and authentication devices, thanks to quantum keys periodically agreed between the authors of the communication.

Regione Lombardia, the two challenges for the Advanced Manufacturing

The second initiative of Lombardy Region aims to strengthen the research infrastructures for the design and characterization of advanced and sustainable materials, serving two major challenges for the Advanced Manufacturing: the development of new solutions for additive manufacturing (3D printing) in biomedical field

In the first case, a high-resolution and high-speed 3D bioprint will be developed for the creation of customized and complex biological tissues; in the second, the specific objective is to develop, prototyping and testing innovative electrochemical devices for conversion and
