Lombardy is the richest region in Italy with a GDP per capita about 32% higher than the national average and 27% of the EU’s. Lombardy is also home to leading scientific centers in areas such as genomics, biomedicine, digital therapies and healthcare management (e.g. oncology, cardiovascular diseases and rehabilitation therapies). Lombardy’s population exceeds 10 million inhabitants.
With a population of about 1.3 million people, Milano is the capital of Lombardy, in the middle of the Po Valley, not far from the Alps and from the Italian largest lakes (Lake Como, Lake Maggiore, Lake Garda).
