Call for four members of the Management Committee of the Human Technopole Foundation

Fri, Jul 13 2018

The Human Technopole Project.

Human Technopole (HT) is the new research institute focused on Life Sciences located in the area which hosted the 2015 Milan Universal Exposition. The aforementioned area is currently undergoing a reconversion plan for the realisation of the MIND Milan Innovation District, the future innovation district for science, technology and society in the city of Milan. The institute is inspired by genomics-centered institutes such as the Broad Institute in Boston, leveraging the strength of Italian universities and research centres and of the Italian Institute of Technology. Focusing on genomics, big data and innovative diagnostic systems, it will develop customised approaches in the medical and nutritional field, aimed at fighting cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. With anticipated national funding amounting to ca. 1.5 billion euros over 10 years, HT is poised to become one of the premier genomics institutes in the world.


The Management Committee.

The Management Committee is one of the governing Bodies of the HT Foundation. Pursuant to articles 16 and 24 of the HT Foundation Statute, the Management Committee is in charge of:

  • appointing, following international selection procedures, the Directors of the HT centres;
  • appointing, following the prior binding opinion of the scientific Committee, the Panels for staff recruitment;
  • defining the regulations on the functioning of the Foundation, to be then approved by the Supervisory Board;
  • proposing modifications to the Statute to the Supervisory Board;
  • submitting to the Supervisory Board the business plan and the financial statements, as well as all the other deliberations provided for in art. 13, paragraph 3, of the Statute.


Pursuant to art. 15 of the Statute, the Committee consists of 5 members, including the Director of the Foundation who, according to art. 4, paragraph 9 of the President of the Council of Ministers’ Decree (P.C.M.D.) No. 28/2018, chairs the Management Committee.

Therefore, with this selection procedure the HT Foundation is looking for 4 (four) ideal candidates to be appointed as members of the Management Committee.
