Kilometro Rosso è uno dei principali distretti italiani dell’innovazione, un luogo di incontro tra ricerca e impresa che opera come agente del trasferimento tecnologico. Oggi il campus è sede di oltre 50 Resident Partner – aziende, laboratori e centri di ricerca – per un totale di 1.600 tra addetti e ricercatori.
Nel distretto si opera in logica aperta, secondo il modello dell’Open Innovation: l’attivazione di sinergie tra soggetti con competenze diverse permette di ridurre i tempi di sviluppo di soluzioni innovative da trasferire al mercato. Per perseguire la propria missione, Kilometro Rosso offre servizi in molteplici ambiti, sia direttamente sia coinvolgendo la community dei Resident Partner.
Nato e sviluppatosi su iniziativa privata, Kilometro Rosso ha da sempre scelto una logica inclusiva nella costruzione del suo modello di lavoro, nella convinzione che solo attraverso la stretta collaborazione tra sistema imprenditoriale, Università, territorio e riferimenti istituzionali si possa moltiplicare il valore espresso da ognuna delle parti, innalzando il livello di competitività dei territori e del Paese.
Per i Resident Partners, svolgere la propria attività nel campus di Kilometro Rosso significa operare in un contesto denso di relazioni e competenze, all’interno di un complesso architettonico unico, che si estende su di un’area di 40 ettari, nel cuore della Lombardia, una delle aree industriali più avanzate d’Europa ed al centro di una fitta rete di trasporti e connessioni.
Inaugurato nel 2009, Kilometro Rosso con i suoi Resident Partner rappresenta una realtà di riferimento nel panorama internazionale della ricerca e del trasferimento tecnologico: 45 laboratori, 21 progetti di R&D finanziati per oltre 80 milioni di euro, 61 brevetti depositati nel 2017, 60.000 delegati ufficiali provenienti da tutto il mondo, 100 eventi all’anno per promuovere l’innovazione tecnologica con oltre 8.000 partecipanti e più di 450.000 ingressi registrati all’anno. Il campus gode inoltre di un’elevata visibilità, con il “muro rosso” ideato da Les Ateliers Jean Nouvel che ogni anno attira l’interesse degli oltre 100 milioni di veicoli che transitano lungo l’Autostrada A4.
Kilometro Rosso è attivo sul fronte delle relazioni nazionali ed internazionali, partecipando ai principali network, tra cui: International Association of Science Parks (IASP), Associazione dei Parchi Scientifici e Tecnologici Italiani (APSTI) e Associazione Italiana per la Ricerca Industriale (AIRI). In linea con l’obiettivo di migliorare la propria offerta di contenuti, Kilometro Rosso vedrà a breve l’insediamento di ENEA – Agenzia nazionale per le nuove tecnologie, l’energia e lo sviluppo economico sostenibile, che porterà sul campus le attività di ricerca nel campo dei materiali e delle smart city.

Già incubatore di imprese innovative riconosciuto dalla Regione Lombardia, Kilometro Rosso è partner delle più importanti iniziative nazionali a supporto di startup e PMI innovative, giovani e aspiranti imprenditori, quali ad esempio il Premio Gaetano Marzotto, Open Italy e 4T- Tech Transfer Think Tank.

This was my first experience with FARO but it proved to be a great experience.

Head of New Business Development and Marketing | Georg Fischer Automotive

I’m very pleased with this edition. It’s my first time at FARO - I have a colleague who was there last year who talked about packaging.
We’ve had a very nice and interesting overview of various materials that I use today for the automotive industry, the market prospective, from the car, also from the content of aluminum.
We’ve had an interesting prospective from a new country, not a new country but a country where there is clearly a growth perspective – Iran –, and an overview with the various materials with the panel discussions.
