LIST ITIS department


The IT for Innovative Services (ITIS) department of LIST has as objective to support the digital transformation of private and public organisations by enabling digital technology innovation with a significant impact that help them to:

- manage their operations more efficiently,

- take better decisions,

- comply with a rapidly evolving regulatory environment.

To fulfil this aim, ITIS develops methodologies, architectures, models, algorithms, software tools, and integrated IT-based systems to achieve a more efficient, optimised, robust, scalable, secure, trustworthy and user-friendly utilisation of data and information technologies both for fully automated systems and for systems with humans in the loop.

The activities of the Department are supported by an AI, data analytics and visualisation Technology Infrastructure.


The ITIS department is focusing on the 6 following “innovation lines” which are coordinating a number of core technology building blocks and associated services to build functional prototypes meeting the exacting requirements of a specific market:

  • 6G,
  • Automated Process-Based Systems,
  • Digital Twin Technologies,
  • Digital Upskilling for Industry 5.0 and Services,
  • Explainable AI Regulatory Sandbox,
  • Interactive Technologies for Critical Incidents
