IIT research results are to a large extent a public asset which should be applied for society's use and benefit. By transferring knowledge and technologies to society and industry IIT’s contribution to the innovation process is further strengthened  and generates  income to support research and reward inventors.

IIT has obtained around 6990 publications  on international scientific journals since 2006 and produced more than 190 inventions, which have resulted in more than 400 patent applications. The relevant expertise has already begun, over the years, to imbue the productive fabric. The overall portfolio of external projects has exceeded 130 million euros since 2006.
