The Challenge of Talent: participants will think about how to identify and enhance Italian talent, through innovative training courses, technologies, new contents, development of transversal skills.
The third challenge is that of the Network and focuses on the importance of collaboration between the various protagonists of the economic-productive sector in Italy, so that innovative and sustainable investments can increase as an opportunity for growth for the entire system.
