First FDI pro­ject to be al­lo­cated space at the Gozo In­no­va­tion Hub

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

Noovle, an Ital­ian com­pany of­fer­ing ICT and cloud con­sul­tancy ser­vices, is the first FDI pro­ject to be al­lo­cated space at the new Gozo In­no­va­tion Hub. The com­pany will be set­ting up a re­search cen­tre fo­cus­ing on cloud/hy­brid cloud; ma­chine learn­ing and blockchain pro­cesses, as well as bas­ing a tech­ni­cal team to of­fer so­lu­tions in these fields to its clients.

Noovle, which is also present in other EU coun­tries, as­sists its clients to move to­wards a Dig­i­tal En­ter­prise Model. The com­pany works in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Google and even de­vel­ops prod­ucts for Google clients. Its net­work and port­fo­lio of clients is im­pres­sive and com­prises var­i­ous big firms across Italy, such as Bar­illa, Fer­rero, the Sapienza Univer­sity of Roma, Sky, Eni, Fiat and many oth­ers.

With the as­sis­tance of Malta En­ter­prise, Noovle is set­ting up at the Gozo In­no­va­tion Hub in two strate­gic phases namely the set­ting up of a tech­ni­cal team that will be cer­ti­fied by Google through spe­cific Re­source Train­ing in the first quar­ter of 2019, which will then be fol­lowed by the es­tab­lish­ment of the cen­tre fo­cus­ing on R&D and blockchain de­vel­op­ment. The pro­ject will carry an in­vest­ment of €650,000 and will see the cre­ation of 35 new jobs over three years.

As Paolo Van­nuzzi, CEO of Noovle stated “it is a plea­sure to be here and to start our ac­tiv­ity here. For us it is im­por­tant to have the cor­rect en­vi­ron­ment to work and to de­velop our ac­tiv­ity”.

Malta En­ter­prise CEO, Mario Galea said: “It is an hon­our for us to have as­sisted a com­pany like Noovle to set up in Gozo. Noovle’s pres­ence here will surely at­tract more com­pa­nies in this grow­ing sec­tor.” He added that Malta En­ter­prise is com­mit­ted to con­tinue at­tract­ing com­pa­nies that will take Malta and Gozo’s vis­i­bil­ity to the next level.

The new Gozo In­no­va­tion Hub has been de­vel­oped by Malta En­ter­prise and Malta In­dus­trial Parks at the for­mer MDP plant with the aim of pro­vid­ing a space where cre­atives and re­searchers from all spheres and in­dus­tries could come to­gether to work in­de­pen­dently, side by side.
