ITHACA, founded in 2006 by Politecnico di Torino with the financial support of the Compagnia di San Paolo, has built strong competences in the field of acquisition, management and elaboration of geographic and cartographic data for emergency response purposes, delivering methodologies, analytical services and technical tools to improve the capacity of the international humanitarian community in early warning, early impact assessment and other risk management related areas.
With a view to cooperate with the World Food Programme (WFP) - the food aid arm of the United Nations and the world's largest operational humanitarian agency - the association was founded as a centre of applied research for the distribution of products and services related to Information Technology in support of humanitarian operations.
ITHACA activities are carried out in cooperation with Politecnico di Torino, specifically with DIST (Interuniversity Department of Regional and Urban Studies and Planning) and with other technology partners such as public and private research centres, aerospace and telecommunications companies and other territorial data suppliers.
With reference to the obligation for non-profit entities to declare any grant, aid, remunerated assignment and economic benefit received by public administrations, as per Law 124/2017, we are here publishing our details for year 2018.
