SPX LAB is involved in a range of social projects, with a particular focus on programmes aimed at ending gender violence or making tourism more accessible to blind people. 

 

SPX LAB collaborates with two important realities of the Ligurian territory::

  • Basta Poco Onlus is an italian no-profit association that has been operating since 2011 on the ligurian territory. It offers concrete support to people in advanced state of illness and their families, to improve their quality of life and to spread the knowledge of the right to palliative care. SPX LAB in 2017 started to collaborate with Basta Poco during different foundrasing events and in 2018 created the new web site www.onlusbastapoco.it
  • Rinascita Vita is a non-profit organization founded with the aim of creating rehabilitation centers for post-comatose patients and their families and developing health services adapted to the needs of this type of patient, establishing a rehabilitation center in Genoa and adopting innovative rehabilitation techniques. SPX Lab from 2016 provides ICT consulting and technical assistance to this important Ligurian reality.

 

SPX LAB has developed two apps over the last few years, drawing on its own resources as well as other sources of funding:

  • Save the Woman, an app designed to prevent gender violence. It received a special mention for its ethical value at the seventh edition of the Best Practices Awards, organised by Confindustria Salerno. For more information, visit www.savethewoman.org.
  • Lodestar, an informative support tool for blind tourists. Although it was initially designed for special palm computers, the app can now be used on smartphones under the name ArtStar*, a museum guide that uses iBeacon, and is accessible to everyone.

 

SPX LAB’s team management practices are built around the principles of 'smart working', favouring sustainable working arrangements that are compatible with the private lives of staff members.

 


SPX Lab organizes free training days, with monthly recurrence, within the Market-THINK Days. Contact us for more information and to get the voucher (20 places available at each session).
