TIM's Foundation: technology as an enabler of social inclusion

Listen, collaborate, support innovation, contribute to changing the living conditions of people in need: these are the everyday commitments that TIM Foundation's applies to its work in the social welfare field.

10/18/2019 - 12:00 AM

The common thread of our many ongoing projects? Technology as an enabler of social inclusion and an opportunity to link innovation with the necessity of providing answers to needs as yet unfulfilled.

One of the key inspiring ideas is that of innovation, not only as the pure application of technology but above all as social innovation: a new approach to training and the right to education, support for scientific methods and true knowledge, protection and development of Italy's historical and artistic heritage, the choice of an inclusive social model. This is all made possible by using technology and innovation as tools that are indispensable to simplify processes, to create a dialogue between different realities, and to improve quality of life.

Innovation and technology are a fundamental part of TIM's DNA, and within TIM Foundation they become factors that encourage the conception and development of new potential in every area of operation, with an efficient system which can be easily replicated and makes every project scalable and exportable across the country, benefiting the entire community.

How does the Foundation work?

TIM's Foundation was created in 2008 to express the social commitment of the Group and its strong sense of responsibility towards the community.

4 Areas of activity: 

  • Education: innovating education and teaching, supporting initiatives aimed at the development - aided by technology - of didactic methods and tools for the creation of “competent” training contexts.
  • Social empowerment: promoting better use of new technologies, together with management skills and efficiency, to develop social inclusion and economic models and tools.
  • Cultural innovation: spreading and defending the scientific method, promoting STEM among the young, proposing the sciences as an incredible opportunity for civil and personal growth.
  • Historic and artistic heritage: using modern day technologies to support the “technology of the past” to help protect and promote artistic and cultural heritage and maximise the ways it can be accessed over the long term.
