The House of Emerging Technologies in Rome represents a true living lab, the seat of innovation, experimentation and smart city-oriented design, inside the Tiburtina station.

This project was implemented by Roma Capitale with co-financing from MISE (Ministry of Economic Development) and other corporate partners, totaling about 6 million euros.

The idea behind this project is extremely dynamic and envisions an imminent future in which emerging technologies, such as blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and integration with 5G networks, will be the drivers of sustainable economic development in the city.

This multipurpose space aims to host a wide range of activities, including startup creation, technology transfer to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), development of applied research projects and new experiments, as well as participation in educational events. Its more than 800 square meters include bright environments and offer a wide range of services and tools, including co-working spaces for individual work, meeting rooms for group work, brainstorming and co-design meetings.

In order to facilitate the participation of startups and SMEs, the House of Emerging Technologies in Rome will organize a series of workshops to facilitate the formation of entrepreneurial teams, the definition of ideas and the exchange of information between innovators and the business world.

This project has La Sapienza University, Tor Vergata University, Luiss Guido Carli University and Roma Tre University as university partners, while technical partners include LVenture Group, Innova and Peekaboo, and corporate partners include TIM, Acea and Wind-Tre.

Among the research, development and innovation activities supported by CTE is CO-Roma, the first active platform on the territory of Rome for sustainable and just urban innovation, also supporting co-design for the development of governance tools that facilitate technology transfer and integration among actors in the Roman innovation ecosystem.
