The event was opened by Maria Cristina Messa, Minister of Innovation: "The government is very aware of the importance of innovation in the country, particularly linked to ICT. In defining the use of PNRR funds, we have devised a sort of encouragement to innovate, allocating 6 of the 11 billion euros to the construction of large research chains. These are projects that each incubate about 300 million euros, therefore very large, and involve the whole country, with 40% in the South. They have the characteristic of having a public driver, universities and research bodies but, in order to carry out research and innovation, these entities must make partnerships with private research centers, companies and local authorities to create the bridge that is sometimes missing between research and innovation. This investment focuses on the digital transition, innovation and artificial intelligence, which you are also talking about today, and which is transversal in all these issues, cannot fail to include a series of reforms".
During the Innovation Awards, five Italian start-ups were honoured for their outstanding achievements in different fields of technological application. Special mention as New Visionary Under 30 for Beatrice Martini, Founder of Maluhia.
