Fondazzjoni Temi Zammit

Fondazzjoni Temi Zammit (FTZ) is a non-profit public equivalent foundation. Established in 2004, it teams up several municipalities and key stakeholders to act as a collaborative network for the implementation of local and international projects of benefit to the Maltese community. Initially set up to provide e-learning services and promote educational projects, the foundation soon extended its role to foster the formation of a strong research and innovation culture across all fields, undertaking various cultural and environmental initiatives and offering support to local players embarking on research activities. The wide range of interests and complementary expertise of its member institutions allow FTZ to adopt a multidisciplinary, holistic approach and participate successfully in several European programmes.

Mission and Activities

Being an umbrella organisation, the foundation seeks to maximize the experience gained by working in close association with the policy-makers, regional and local authorities, civil society organisations and SMEs concerned, thus multiplying the benefits derived from its participation across the whole spectrum of its membership. Its multi-sectoral networking arrangements and the extensive experience of its members place FTZ in a privileged position to carry out successfully demonstration and dissemination activities and fulfil the role of a multiplier of information. It also helps to provide the critical mass often required for participation in transnational projects, through its networking and capacity-building actions.

Fondazzjoni Temi Zammit's activities are generally intended to boost local development, particularly through participation in European programmes. Its five main thrusts of action build on the experience the foundation has gained so far in the following areas:

  • ICT-assisted Education
  • Research and Innovation
  • Culture and the Arts
  • Environment
  • Social and European issues
