Starting from 1988, we have been studying solutions to preserve and improve life in the city of Venice.

Every year since 1988, WPI students have carried out relevant projects in order to solve issues and problems of the city of Venice with a scientific and technological approach. In almost 5 decades of activity, the projects have covered a wide range of topics, from conservation of cultural heritage to in-depth analysis of the hydrogeological data of the lagoon. Many of these projects have inspired and started the creation of Venetian start-ups.





Over the years we have implemented several projects, tools and applications based on the data collected through the work of the students. Some of these aim to become real start-ups with the goal of creating work in the city and providing useful tools to its inhabitants

We have always tried to give back to the city and to people the knowledge gathered during the years of activity by publishing articles and collaborating in scientific publications.




Years of activity have allowed us to collect a considerable amount of data concerning the city. This data is the basis for the operation of many services useful to the community, and are used daily by applications and predictive models. We are proud of our Open approach, giving access to our data in order to support and enhance the quality of life in the city.

We believe that our work through the years, by supporting local institutions and activities, has significantly contributed to improving the living conditions of the City.
