20-21 October 2014
CNR, Aula Convegni, Piazzale Aldo Moro 7, Roma
The Italian partners of the Bivee project (CNR, Engineering, Loccioni and Università Politecnica delle Marche), together with AICA, Media Duemila, and Stati Generali dell’Innovazione present the 2nd Bivee Italian Stakeholder Conference: Innovating Innovation - New frontiers for enterprise innovation.
Innovation is one of the most important strategic driver to exit the crisis and boost the economy and, more generally, the growth of the country (even if it declined in the size of capital).
The conference ‘Innovating Innovation’ aims to create a space for discussion and exchange on emerging solutions, the enablers, but also the main issues related to enterprise innovation.
In a highly competitive globalized world it is necessary to rethink globally the methods, tools and strategies necessary to promote, facilitate, support and manage innovation in its various forms (product, process, technology, organization, etc.), paying particular attention to SMEs who, lacking the necessary critical mass, ask for the building of collaborative networks innovation oriented.
The conference is addressed to all subjects highly involved in innovation:
- Innovation Champions
Companies that are able to adopt new paradigms and tools for continuous innovation. For example reorganizing supply chains of innovation based on open networks, to the territory, to Universities, to new partnerships, with a new approach to creativity and leadership.
- Innovation Angels
Universities, research centers (public and private), hi-tech companies, consultants are able to offer solutions to stimulate, support and manage innovation.
- Innovation Promoters
Intermediate bodies, institutional (e.g.: Regions, Cities, Ministries in charge, Chambers of Commerce) and not (Associations, Confederation of Italian Industry, Venture Capital & Private Equity), able to promote and encourage innovation.
