For Scientists

SISSA promotes both basic research, aimed at furthering scientific knowledge and insights in general, and applied research, focused on concrete solutions to defined problems.

These mutually complementary research strands both shape the transfer of knowledge and technology to society through collaboration with industry partners.


The Valorisation and Innovation Office gives SISSA PhD students and scientists all the needed support to facilitate and capitalize this process through:

  • Knowledge Valorisation: to identify knowledge and know how, Protecting Tecnologies and Supporting development and commercialization strategies


  • Talent Valorisation : to transfer skills / know-how / problem solving skills / vision through the insertion and reciprocal contamination of our graduate students and young researchers (future alumni and job seekers) with the external productive and social world, that is enterprises and end-users (potential future employers). An experiment "tailored made" action, designed on the basis of the specific needs of the students and the innovation needs expressed by the productive, territorial and national.
