The Area adopts an interdisciplinary and ecosystemic approach leveraging openness, complementarity and cross fertilization for the generation of value for private actors and for society at large. The team is composed of industrial, IT, cinema and materials engineers, as well as economists.

La Fondazione LINKS è stata fondata nel 2016 sfruttando e valorizzando l'esperienza acquisita dall'Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB) e dall'Istituto Superiore sui Sistemi Territoriali per l'Innovazione (SiTI) nei primi 2 decenni del nuovo millennio nel campo della ricerca applicata e trasferimento tecnologico, aggiungendo un elemento fondamentale come la valorizzazione del risultato della ricerca. Come parte della catena della conoscenza, la Fondazione intende rafforzare la leva della ricerca applicata, contribuendo alla crescita del sistema socio-economico mettendo in relazione il mondo accademico e il settore pubblico e privato, attivando processi e progetti su larga scala con impatti significativi sul territorio. La Fondazione intende stabilire un dialogo con l'imprenditoria locale, nazionale e internazionale, al fine di condividere e migliorare la conoscenza, l'esperienza e l'innovazione. La Fondazione è un partner ideale sia per le Piccole e Medie Imprese, che sono in grado di migliorare le proprie capacità di innovazione e competitività facendo leva sull'esperienza e competenza della Fondazione, sia per le Grandi Imprese che possono, insieme ad essa, sviluppare nuove idee e tecnologie.
