Trentino (local newspaper of Trento) is reporting that “Microsoft will open its first Italian Microsoft Reseach Center in Trento”. None of my colleagues knew about this before. I think this news (if confirmed) will affect in many ways all the research institutes in Trento area (they are many) and nobody seems to know how. [ehm, I think I should remove all those anti- microsoft I was enjoying writing lately ;-) ]
Any idea of what Microsoft might be doing in Trento ?
Not that I want to submit a CV ;-), but it is likely I am going to move to Trento within this year, so evertyhing that makes that place more interesting is good.
Not sure. One reason might be that Trento’s Province is financing research institute but I don’t think Microsoft needs funds. Another can be that Trento could seem the most “advanced” area in Italy (a lot of talking about Life sciences, Information technology, Complex systems, Bio-Mathematics, Physics, Environmental sciences, Computational sciences, Bio-Engineering, Behavioral economics, Cognitive sciences. See http://www.unitn.it/events/consci/
I don’ really know what to say… and what will you do in Trento? I shall you introduce to night life [actually, be aware, that word does not exist in Trento ;-) ]
I might join a project in Trento aimed at developing a proton facility for cancer treatment.
