Leonardo promotes the continuous sharing and diffusion of innovation culture by involving an extensive network of universities, institutes and research organizations, customers, suppliers and start-ups, in a logic of open innovation.
In synergy with the objectives of institutional stakeholders and of a shared technology roadmap, Leonardo is a partner of excellence in nationally and European funded projects, that ensure the availability of the necessary resources for the research and subsequently for the implementation of the innovation produced.
In Leonardo the most advanced technologies, knowledge and culture of knowing how converge in innovation pathways aimed at providing effective responses to pressing issues such as the growing need to feel secure, the need to make networks more resilient, the impacts of climate change and the protection against physical and cybernetic threats.
THE PLANET’S LIFE AND RESOURCES
Through the COSMO-SkyMed system, Leonardo is committed to developing earth observation activities, the “new frontier” of space economy, in order to monitor terrestrial and marine ecosystems, ensure the sustainable management of natural resources and support rescue operations for victims of earthquakes and natural events.
THE MOBILITY SOLUTIONS OF THE FUTURE
Thanks to its participation in the European Clean Sky and Sesar aerospace programmes, Leonardo is developing solutions that improve the sustainability of the air traffic of the future, assisting the entire sector in meeting the stringent abatement objectives concerning its CO2 emissions.
THE NEED FOR SECURITY
Thanks to the dual-exploitation of its technologies, Leonardo is a leader in the systems and solutions for the resilience of critical infrastructures, ports and airports, and in monitoring the flow of people and goods, specifically in highly populated urban areas, where the need to feel safe from threats, including terrorist attacks, is stronger.
Thanks to the experience gained in the fields of communication, networking, cyber security and cyber intelligence, Leonardo provides the most effective solutions against IT threats, the economic and social development introduced by the industrial revolution 4.0 and the exponential growth of Internet of Things
