“University 5.0”. Relaunching the university system as a driver for growth and development of the national economic and business systems

Universities represent the key infrastructure to support the nation’s growth, competitiveness and development.

 

Institutes of higher learning are the transmission belt between talent and expertise, play an irreplaceable role in all fields of research and benefit their local areas through the third mission.

Within this context, the university system as a whole is called upon today to play a leading role in the transition towards what is known as “Society 5.0”, a society capable of putting its citizens at the center and utilizing knowledge, innovation and technologies to respond to changing social needs.

But, today, are Italian universities in a position to play this proactive and indispensable role for the nation? What is required to loosen the knots of the Italian university system which currently limit their attractiveness and efficacy?

To respond to these questions, in 2019 the Ambrosetti Club launched a process of research and reflection that involved the main stakeholders in the Italian university sector in a dialog with business leaders and national and international experts to identify the problems to be solved and provide ten proposals to be implemented to create a real “University 5.0” in Italy.

As part of the Technology Forum Week, the results of this
study were discussed with the Italian Minister of University and Research, Gaetano Manfredi.
