Since 2019, the Pitagora Hub has brought together excellent large, small and medium-sized enterprises, research organisations, spin offs and start-ups operating on Calabrian, national and international territory. The aim is to promote networking between the partners, supporting the design and implementation of high-tech research projects. And making them visible at national and international level. We build up a “scientific community” that interacts and cooperates, combining know-how and spreading technological innovation. Hence the origin of the name Polo Pitagora.


The operation under way was selected under the Calabria ROP 2014/2020 and that the operation is carried out with the help of resources from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Italian State and the Calabria Region.
