ARCA is a consortium for the application of research and the creation of innovative enterprises, which has been active since 2003 and has exploited a partnership between the University of Palermo and a private entrepreneurial group committed to industrial research and technological transfer. In 2005 the Consortium started up the ARCA Incubator to promote and assist the generation of innovative business initiatives. In a complementary and integrated way with the activities of the incubator, we promote industrial research and technological transfer programs customised to the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises, networks and industrial districts. We are strongly committed to transnational cooperation programs; we carry out social innovation initiatives in collaboration with other local development actors. ARCA offers scouting, coaching and training, managerial mentoring and technological benchmarking, access to financial and industrial relations as well as premises and logistics. Advanced laboratories enable companies to carry out pre-industrial development and prototyping activities at competitive costs, in collaboration with our qualified experts and researchers, mainly within joint R&D and technology transfer university-enterprise agreements. The fields of interest of ARCA are: eco-design and eco-compatible materials, cultural heritage, IT and diagnostic tools, etc.
