“Since our inception in 2009 we have been working in close cooperation with PNO,” said Valeria Marino, CEO of Innovation Engineering. “For example, we built the Matchpoint, Innovation Place and the WBSO platforms, supporting PNO in better serving its clients and digitalising its internal processes.”

Paolo Salvatore, a board member at PNO, sees an important role for Innovation Engineering within the group. “In our business as a leading consulting service provider in innovation and access to R&D public funding, analysis of data and information is an essential part of the process. Innovation Engineering has a proven track record in this area.”

“In the current climate, where innovation is a critical success factor in almost every sector and market, the cooperation with Innovation Engineering therefore represents an enormous strengthening of the PNO Group’s proposition.”
