(ANSA) - UDINE, 05 DIC - Caterina Petrillo, President of Area Science Park, a leading institution in the field of research and innovation based in Trieste, signed a Memorandum of Understanding today in Belgrade with the Serbian science and technology parks of Belgrade, Nis, Cacak, and Novi Sad.
    The agreement is a further step in technical assistance activity in technology transfer and economic development that began in 2015. The signing occurred as part of the ongoing Italy-Serbia Innovation Forum in Belgrade, an event organized by the Italian Embassy in Serbia and the Ice Agency, among others.
    The purpose of the three-year memorandum is to implement joint projects in areas of common interest, such as life sciences, energy transition, and innovative materials, and to support innovation and technology transfer, with a particular focus on the science parks involved, in line with the European and national strategic objectives of Serbia and Italy.
    The MoU also aims to facilitate student and staff mobility and access to facilities and laboratories.
    "As a public and national research institution of the MUR (Ministry of University and Research) that is also in charge of the management of the science and technology park in Trieste, we have the opportunity to develop a double track of cooperation with the parks of Serbia, which also involves the presence of university and higher education institutions," Petrillo said, underlining that Area Science Park's geographical location also makes it a natural and privileged gateway to the Balkans.
