Consistent with its mission and areas of intervention, Fondazione TIM carries out its projects according to specific criteria:

TOOLS: FTIM operates by means of disbursements, the criteria and procedures for which are established by the Board of Directors, pursuing its goals by allocating contributions to projects proposed by third party individuals and non-profit-making institutions that fulfil the requirements set by the Board of Directors.  As of 2015, in specific areas of its operations, FTIM will be looking to manage projects itself.

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES: FTIM works to disseminate a culture of innovation, in order to promote solidarity and civil, cultural and economic development. FTIM operates without discrimination based on nationality, race or religion and intends to pursue the definition, implementation and promotion of initiatives and projects institutionally, operating in the following sectors in particular:

  • Education: aiming to use technologies to transform educational methods and activities, using digital technology as an enabling factor for education and training, for both students and teachers.
  • Innovation culture: a programme of annual lectures and outreach lessons in the field of scientific and technological culture is planned.
  • Social empowerment: consists of promoting the better use of technologies in social enterprises, as well as good management practice and efficiency, in order to ensure that good is increasingly done well.
  • Historic and artistic heritage: consists of implementing projects aimed at disseminating knowledge and enjoying heritage using new technological tools. Be it media used to digitise a museum's archives or tools to revive ancient crafts and artisan excellence, projects are selected based on the collective usability of the result, with the aim of achieving cultural and social enrichment for everyone.
