The Consortium's activities concern several aspects of Information & Communication Technology. They can be subdivided into two large sectors, one aimed at institutional organisations and the other, more generally, relative to the services linked to technological transfer.
Cineca designs tools and technologies aimed at solving specific problems for universities and public research agencies. In particular, as regards scientific computing for public and private academic research and management services for universities and the Ministry of Education, University and Research.
Meanwhile, still through the use and development of innovative technologies and advanced protection systems, it supplies advanced services to Public Administration and businesses, analysing their needs and offering specific solutions for the different problems.
Cineca is one of Italy's main representatives in European Union projects, participating in numerous activities related to the promotion, development and diffusion of the most advanced information technologies.
