Istituto Europeo per lo Sviluppo Socio Economico


The Istituto Europeo per lo Sviluppo Socio-Economico is a no profit association founded in Piedmont in order to support the business and the academic worlds in the fundamental research process, starting point of the decision making.
The association aims to promote the Italian participation in research and development programmes financed by the European Commission and the realisation of initiatives aimed to encourage the development and the valorisation, also abroad, of all the Italian economy branches.
To realise its mission, ISES suggests, thanks to its activities, to guarantee the continued improvement of the characteristics of international attraction of the region considering the possible direct investments and the valorisation of the regional economy; the development of the relations between the economic and productive sector and the regional, national and European institutions involved in the technological development of the most specialised sector of the territory.
ISES works on the management of institutional relations and the accreditation at local and central level exploiting the public funding leverage and the socio-economic research tools.
The use of direct and indirect funds stimulates the relation with the institutional and decision-making centres, offers an opportunity to build new partnerships and enable stable relations at local level.
