TIM Open Labs are centres that result from the integration of TIM’s tech labs with TIM WCap offices and develop innovation for business and tech challenges, to produce a competitive advantage for the company in terms of both top-line growth and greater efficiency.
TIM Open Labs can be found in Turin, Milan, Bologna, Rome, Naples and Catania and employ Open Innovation methodology, bringing together the capacity of the industrial world, universities, research centres and innovative start-ups with in-house expertise. All of this contributes to TIM’s digital transformation, in the following directions:
- enhancing the experience of business customers and consumers using innovative solutions
- identifying and experimenting with new market opportunities
- promoting TIM’s tech leadership with distinctive solutions for new network and service scenarios
The TIM Open Labs approach is “experimental”, based on checking the effective value of the solution offered with receptive customers so as to exploit successful initiatives fully. TIM Open Labs also develop synergies with national and European research and innovation projects and fine-tune new inventions that enhance TIM’s IPR assets, which now include more than 3000 patents.
