ICT research and development centre

Since 2003 PMF Research is an ICT research and development centre. The fields of interest range from augmented reality and virtual reality to artificial intelligence, from blockchain to big data.
PMF Research is involved in many national and international projects in cooperation with public research organisations, universities and private companies.


Augmented reality and virtual reality

Companies can take advantage of the advantages of augmented reality and virtual reality to differentiate themselves from competitors.

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (machine learning) refers to the simulation of human intelligence processes by computer systems.

Big data

Big data refers to large amounts of data, numbers and statistics to be stored, managed and analyzed. The sectors most affected are: banking, insurance, social media, PA and healthcare.


It is a set of single blocks linked together by cryptography that create a distributed and extremely secure database with applications that in many sectors can change the way to work.

Thanks to the credibility acquired over the years by PMF Research, its research and development (R&D) activities have attracted grants from the National Operational Programme (NOP) on Enterprises and Competitiveness, from the NOP MIUR (Ministry of Education, University and Research) on Research and Competitiveness 2007-2013, from the Erasmus+ Programme, from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), from the Life Learning Programme and from the Sicily POR (Regional Operational Programme).
By using Skype and other online collaboration tools on a daily basis, PMF Research can easily operate throughout Europe, from Iceland to Turkey, from Lithuania to Portugal.
