Created in 2009 through an initiative by the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Trento, ICT Days - thanks to the intervention of Trento RISE and FBK-Fondazione Bruno Kessler - has become a key event, both at the local and national levels.
Our fifth edition introduces a new approach for reaching a larger audience: Orizzonti 2015. General population, students, startups, and entrepreneurs are all encouraged to embrace the transformation of the Trentino Region into an eco-system of innovation. and a networking opportunity for students, businesses, universities and research centers.
