Human Technopole Foundation

Italy’s new research institute for life sciences

After representing and celebrating Italian excellence to the millions who visited EXPO Milan 2015, the Italian Government decided to carry on the EXPO legacy by creating an open research centre to foster collaboration and bring added value to the scientific research ecosystem across Italy and Europe. Today, Palazzo Italia, the former Italian pavilion at EXPO Milan 2015, has been completely refurbished and is the institutional headquarters of Human Technopole.

Through an interdisciplinary approach based on the creation and sharing of knowledge, Human Technopole promotes innovation in the healthcare sector and aims at improving human health and well-being. Once fully operational, the institute will employ 1,500 people including over 1,000 scientists across a range of fields – biology, bioinformatics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and computer science – who will have over 35,000 square metres of laboratory space in which to work together on research activities of biomedical relevance.

Human Technopole aims to increase public and private investments in scientific research and to be actively involved in the promotion of scientific knowledge by strengthening the message that science is a global public good.
