The lab will focus on next generation Mobile Internet services, such as NFC (Near Field Communication). The initiative is part of Telecom Italia's plans to set up six new research labs around the country in partnership with leading Italian universities to rebuild and transform the relationship between the worlds of business and academia in the field of technological innovation.
