Without innovation and technology there can be no development. Investing in innovation and technology means following the road to growth. The European House – Ambrosetti understood this some time ago when, in 2011, it created the InnoTech Hub, an area designed to be a point-of-reference for the Italian innovation and technology ecosystem in Europe and throughout the world.
Innovation has always been a conditio sine qua non for economic and social progress. It is the means through which we support the quality of our lifestyle. It forms the basis of new products and improvements in the organizational processes of our companies. And it is the tool which allows us to respond quickly and effectively to the on-going changes in production models, demographic shifts and environmental conditions.
Prosperity will be based increasingly on the ability to resist growing international competition through pushing forward the innovation frontier, foreseeing technological transformations and market trends, and maximizing the speed and efficacy of the way new discoveries are transferred and commercialized.
In order to truly relaunch Italy’s capacity to innovate, a real innovation ecosystem must be built.
The InnoTech Hub mission is to bring together, reinforce and enhance the Italian innovation ecosystem on a global scale.
Specifically, the InnoTech Hub proposes to:
The InnoTech Hub has set itself the goal of being the player-of-reference for innovation and technology in terms of the:

The The European House – Ambrosetti InnoTech Community is the flagship project of the InnoTech Hub and brings together stakeholders and policy makers to gain an understanding of the impacts resulting from new and emerging technologies in order to build long-term competitive advantages for local areas and companies, and to improve the quality of life of individuals. The Community is based on three cornerstones: the Innovation Meeting, the Innovation Trip and the Technology Forum.
The Technology Forum
The Technology Forum is the main event of the InnoTech Community and offers an invaluable opportunity to meet the most influential innovators from all over the world, interact with policy makers and learn from internationally successful cases. The new interactive format provides ample opportunity for peer discussion and debate, including outside the scheduled encounters—a day of full-immersion in innovation and technology.
Life Sciences Technology Forum
This project—created in 2015 in collaboration with Assobiotec, the Italian association for the development of biotechnologies, and Alisei, the Italian life sciences cluster—has as its objective to contribute to promoting the development of the innovation ecosystem in the life sciences sector in Italy and foster discussion among the highest levels of research, business, finance and government and institutions. Starting in 2018, the Life Sciences Technology Forum also has two other important partners: The Telethon Foundation and Sofinnova. Its mission is to make Italy the place we would like for the biopharmaceuticals of tomorrow: a leading player in the research, development, production and access to innovative, biotech products.
Campania Technology Forum
The Campania Technology Forum was formed in 2016 in collaboration with the Campania region, as the first local spin-off of The European House – Ambrosetti Technology Forum. Its mission is to “contribute to the creation and acceleration of the innovation and research ecosystem in Campania, making it the barycenter of new development for the Mediterranean area”. The methodology applied in the Campania Technology Forum has been developed by The European House – Ambrosetti using a multi-phase and multi-level approach that alternates research and analysis with discussion and debate with local stakeholders.
The The European House – Ambrosetti Fintech Community brings together key stakeholders and policy makers to promote the development of a business ecosystem that seizes the opportunities deriving from the digital revolution in financial services to create value for all those involved. Each year, a program is organized consisting of three meetings and a concluding forum that examines issues of interest to the partners.
The InnoTech Hub is also involved in monoclient consulting projects.
