Research Integrated Programme
April, 16th 2014 was the day the Memorandum of Understanding and of the Implementation Agreement between INAIL and Regione Lombardia was signed. It clarified the establisment of an Integrated Research Hub that will allow the creation of a supply chain for the recovery of psycho-physical integrity for workplace injured and technopathics, through the identification of new technologies and methodologies for assistance and the experimentation of innovative rehabilitation protocols to implement.
The Memorandum of Understanding quotes the strong will Regione Lombardia has to “characterize the Lombardy region and the Lecco district in particular, as a center of excellence for the cure (hospital and non-hospital for long-term patients), research on cure, supply and management models supporting victims of traumatic accidents and technopathics, able to address the therapeutic needs of resident citizens as well as foreign ones”.
CNR (The National Research Council), Politecnico di Milano and Confindustria Nazionale (“the main association supporting manifacturing and service companies in Italy” – cfr. Confindustria website) were important actors that supported this result.
