The Trentino region of Italy used to be famous for its mountains and agricultural produce. Today it is known across Italy and the whole of Europe not just for its unspoiled nature, food and landscapes but also for an incredibly innovative approach to issues around quality of life. A healthy life means, first and foremost, a healthy home. Because indoor environments are where we spend the majority of our time, particularly in the house and office, as well as in bars, shops, restaurants, hotels and clinics.
In Trentino, a healthy home is a priority. It is no coincidence Rovereto, a town which is a high-tech manufacturing hub, is home to Habitech, the Trentino Technological Cluster for Energy and the Environment. The goal of the Cluster, one of the region’s centres of excellence, is very relevant: to promote sustainable construction throughout the manufacturing supply chain and via enterprise networks.
Habitech, which has been operating in this sector for more than a decade, sets the standard nationally for Green Building and Smart Living. For UpSens, where healthy living and quality of life are the guiding principles, we absolutely had to join Habitech and support its mission. Indeed, the aim of our sensors is to improve quality of life in indoor environments, bringing together three elements from the sector: a focus on the environment and sustainability; an incredibly high level of technological innovation and a distinctively Italian accent on the design and appearance of the product.
For UpSens, being part of Habitech is not just a source of pride, it is a unique opportunity to come into contact with outstanding professionals and companies from this sector. People and businesses who will, without doubt, appreciate the innovation of our devices: with UpSens, a property, be it a house, a school or a flagship building, becomes even more people-friendly and takes a step forward in terms of health and living conditions. Thanks to UpSens’ sensors, as users we are better informed and can take action to make real improvements to the environments where we spend most of our lives.
Again, by joining Habitech, we have the opportunity to tap into an important reservoir of skills and to develop in cultural, technical and scientific terms; moreover, the sector, thanks to its innovative nature, is constantly and continuously evolving. “As a business woman, someone from Trentino and a citizen who is aware of environmental, sustainability and quality of life issues, I am delighted that UpSens is part of one of the most innovative and interesting clusters in the country” commented Ketty Peller, CEO of UpSens. “I would like to thank Francesco Cattaneo, the director of Habitech, for his support and interest. We are eager to make our own contributions to the cluster and its numerous areas of excellence”
