The activity of the Foundation is based on two main threads:

  • Research activity in the field of communication and information technology (ICT)
  • Specific assignments on commission

Research is a prerequisite for FUB to maintain high scientific standards and carry out successful general activities and specific commissions.

The experience accumulated in the field of research can be applied to a multitude of operational projects aimed at transferring innovative solutions to industrial environments or public administrations.

Furthermore, careful analysis and involvement in the field  guarantee a higher level of awareness of the emerging issues which will affect the protection of citizens’ rights.

FUB achieved a sound, internationally recognised, expertise in participation to international research initiatives and programmes, including the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission as well as other European and international initiatives.

FUB also participates to main relevant international Forums and cooperates with several European and non-European institutions.
