As part of the European project AI REGIO, Cluster AFIL – Associazione Fabbrica Intelligente Lombardia organizes, together with Cluster COMET, the event “The digital transformation in Lombardy and Friuli Venezia Giulia: the role of technology parks and regional incubators”, scheduled for Thursday, April 7, 2022 at 14:30.

The initiative was created with the intent to allow the two regional systems, through the contributions of the various actors who will be partecipating, to show the range of services for digital transformation and share their experiences on the subject. The goal of the event will be to encourage matchmaking and mutual understanding between technology parks and regional incubators, within the regions of Lombardy and Friuli Venezia Giulia.

After the introduction by the clusters promoters of the event, two main sessions will be held.

The first part will be reserved to the presentations of the regional Competence Centers and Digital Innovation Hubs, with a closing speech by EIT Manufacturing: they will present their activities and services offered in the regional ecosystem, with particular attention to the collaboration model with technology parks.

The second session will directly involve technology parks and incubators from Lombardy and Friuli Venezia Giulia to present their activities on the subject and to exchange views and experiences: among these, there will be also Techinnova as a successful incubator from Lombardy, which will present a general overview of its main activities in the field of Research and Development. Hopefully, this session will promote opportunities for interaction among participants, stimulating new synergies and collaborations or, more generally, allowing to know similar realities.

The event, which is expected to end around 5:00 p.m., will close with a Q&A session and wrap-up to summarize and dismiss.


The event will also be disseminated by the Cluster Tecnologico Fabbrica Intelligente Nazionale – CFI and will serve as a trailblazer for similar initiatives that may be replicated with other regions.
