IFAB for Businesses and
Public Authorities

Technological innovation for businesses and citizens

IFAB acts as a bridge between high-performance computing technologies and services and the needs of businesses and society. Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing and, more generally, High Performance Computing systems represent an enormous opportunity for industry, medicine and the energy sector, but also for the management of water and food resources, for resilience to climate change, for transport and urban systems. Enormous potential that must take tangible form in real-life projects, such as the ones the Foundation selects in its Calls for projects, or which take shape within national and international networks like the Italian Research Center on HPC, Big Data and Quantum Computing and the EuroCC Italy Competence Centre, of which IFAB forms part.
