May, 23 2014

Valerio De Molli , Managing Director of The European House – Ambrosetti, has opened the Third Technology Forum ‘Innovation , Education , Entrepreneurship’.

In his speech, two metrics of reference for assessing the state of health of the Italian ecosystem for innovation: the Ambrosetti Innosystem Index, which monitors 5 areas and 14 indicators of the innovation ecosystem, and the results of the survay that Ambrosetti conducted among Italian companies of the Community Technology, Innovation and Technology Transfer .

If the number of citations per researcher rewards Italy and the quality of his research, although Italian investments in R & D as a whole still remain very low, with some critical weaknesses, such as the attractiveness and the resources for innovation.

The achievement of the European target certainly requires a change of gear, and the good news is that Italian companies seem to have understood it: the Community TITT reveals a positive intention in recruiting qualified staff to boost R & D.

An activity that is now mainly carried out in-house and is often financed with internal resources .

If, therefore, the business community observes that the Italian ecosystem is under – competitive, there are 5 areas where to invest to grow through innovation: Nanotechnology, New Materials, InnovativeTechnologies for Energy, Mobile and Internet.
