Distretto Tecnologico Trentino
The Italian partner DTTN (Distretto Tecnologico Trentino), promoted by the Autonomous Province of Trento and recognised by the Ministry of Universities and Research, is the result of the cooperation between the University of Trento, research laboratories, private companies and local institutions, with the aim of creating specialised production chains in the field of sustainable buildings, renewable energy sources and intelligent territorial management technologies. In these three key fields, DTTN offers services, supports innovation and development of supply chains, creating innovative marketing infrastructures through the development of sustainable projects. Today, DTTN is a technological cluster with approximately 180 members, representing over 300 companies, mainly dedicated to the green building design. Promoting member and main sponsor of GBC Italia, DTTN introduced LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) in Italy as the most appropriate rating system to help Italian companies foster innovation and competitiveness in the sustainable building field.
