The main cooperation with international institutions of excellence are with the Anderson School of Management of UCLA, the University FAF Munich, the Berkeley University, BUPT Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering of UCLA and the Office of Outer Space Affairs of United Nations.
It is a reference center of gravity for innovation, with the active promotion of the Torino Wireless Cluster, is a partner of the Torino Wireless Foundation, and involved in areas such as Business Incubator I3P, ITP, and more.
The Professional Studio collaborates with the Laboratory of Satellite Navigation Institute, working collaboratively in an operational scheme that allows the creation of prototypes engineered that allow companies to contain costs, shrinking the time required to arrive at the series production.
