About us

Mission and Vision

The main goal of the Distretto is to aggregate a ‘cluster’ of companies having a significant technology content, in order to enable the industrial development and to preserve the large amount of advanced technical know how present in the area. The mission is to increase the competitiveness of the industrial presence in Lombardy (expecially in sub region Brianza), adding value and promoting the territory, by stimulating and helping to emerge the sinergies between Political Institutions and Companies and between SMEs and Multinational Enterprises. We work on two levels of interactions: - Focusing on each individual Company (especially SMEs), aiming at enabling a sustainable growth based on products, technology and business process innovation. - Promoting activities across the Target Sectors (activating system projects capable of combining the industrial development and the technological requalification and/or growth of the territory).
