The Lab@AOR is the public-private partnership for innovation in healthcare between Ancona University Hospital and Loccioni. It originated in 2007 and has been renewed in 2009 and 2014 with the aim of innovating technologies, processes, buildings and empowering people.

Lab@AOR focuses on knowledge exchange between the clinical and the technical world. The Hospital provides knowledge and clinical experience while the industry, on the other side, brings its entrepreneurial, innovative and pro-active spirit: its corporate culture.

Within the Lab@AOR framework clinicians and engineers collaborate in developing technological solutions aiming at improving patient safety, energetic sustainability of hospitals and clinical workflows such as APOTECA and Agorà.
