March 2012 Newsletter – Put the country's future on the agenda

Newsletter of 07 March 2012


With this newsletters we want to improve communication within the association and towards the reference community, but above all we want to solicit participation in the various activities started. Send us your proposal! Here are some channels through which you can contact us:

For the 2012 the association's commitment is focused on two main fronts: consolidating and deepening strategic proposals for the development of innovation and the Italian digital agenda; to connect actors and experiences that have already started in the area, making a contribution to the growth of good innovation practices. The newsletter aims to support discussion and sharing around the activities that we will launch on these objectives.

The value of this newsletter will therefore be closely linked to the contributions that we all want to provide, to put them in common, with reports, ideas and proposals.
