The inno3 Competence Centre conducts work in the fields of pre-competitive research, competitive research, and also in the field of action research projects focussing on the needs of the local area. The added value provided by the applied research work executed by SUPSI and by inno3 consists of the effective combination between the scientific approach to problem solving and the practical nature of the solutions proposed.

The Centre also has responsibility for coordinating the strategic axis “New entrepreneurial models for the sustainable development of the local area.” This axis is part of the SUPSI research strategy that aims to promote interdisciplinarity and cooperation between the various departments, uniting their strengths around topics that can be considered as strategic and long term.
