Newsletter of April 11, 2012


With the first meeting of the Permanent Consultation of Innovation (http://goo.gl/KCXdg) of 16 March, the association took an important step in building a permanent connection network between all the innovation stakeholders, which is also one of the main elements of its "mission". Now we have to ensure that, thanks to this discussion table, the definition of the Italian Digital Agenda is more effective and richer. This is the contribution we have offered to the government through Mario Calderini, the adviser to Minister Profumo, who held the role of chairperson of the Consulta. An important first step, which coincides with the publication of the first eBook of the series "Let's change the model" (http://goo.gl/2K9vh), which is a synthesis of the work of recent months and which we think could represent an organic basis of contributions for the Digital Agenda and also for future initiatives.

One of these, held at Genoa (http://goo.gl/Tohzf) on March 23, testified once again how our country is rich and vital and how the method of integrating skills and interests is the most effective. The one that gives greater guarantees of success. The one to apply.

Unfortunately, the month of March saw the issue of network regulation and copyright by theAGCOM. We have stated several times that this is a matter that cannot fail to fall within the tasks of the government "control room" and integrate with the policies of the Italian Digital Agenda.

The time in which the Authorities could think of acting outside of strictly technical tasks is over, but in order for it not to return, the new appointments, now imminent, must be made with the method of maximum transparency. For this reason, the association has decided to join the coalition which has launched the“We want transparency” initiative (http://goo.gl/LaT80). Because reforms are carried out starting from the method and the rules.
