National and European Programmes

Leonardo plans and delivers innovation through a technology roadmap. This ensures that new technologies being developed, partly funded by public support, maintain Leonardo’s market position, create new business opportunities, expand existing markets and create new ones.


Leonardo plans its research and development activities to maintain and strengthen the company’s competitive position in a number of sectors while staying aligned with the strategic direction of various institutional stakeholders.


Public policies supporting innovation are one of the main drivers of high technology. Leonardo has successfully participated in projects funded at both national and European levels, allowing the company to showcase the skills of its workers and to build a collaborative network of industrial partners, universities, research institutes and national, European and international product users to support the company’s technologies.
