In the first edition

  • We analysed the economic and social outlook of Sicily – within the context of the post COVID-19 period, the implementation of the NRRP and the new European programming cycle – and identified the strategic assets and areas to start from in order to produce a development vision
  • We defined a development agenda for Sicily, focused on attracting investments in strategic regional skills and launching projects that can catalyze economic resources and growth
  • We supported the medium-long term programming of regional Institutions, through the development of tools to measure and monitor the strategic goals linked to the vision and projects launched
  • We listened to and engaged stakeholders (at local and supra-local level) and national and international entities that are important for the region
  • We maximized the visibility and recognizability of the Region, facilitating the construction of a network of national and international relations
For the dissemination and implementation of the actions, we organised a regional Road Show in four steps:
