Our vision

At Human Technopole we offer a highly collaborative, international culture to foster top quality, interdisciplinary research by promoting a vibrant environment consisting of independent research groups with access to outstanding graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and core facilities.

We aim to attract the best talent – both in scientific and administrative positions – by focussing on competences and professionalism. Our recruitment follows international standards and procedures and is carried out through open calls.

Our offices are at the heart of MIND Milano Innovation District, in the former Milan 2015 EXPO site, just a 20-minute metro ride away from Milan’s city centre.

An ideal environment to foster the exchange of thoughts and ideas.
