The Think Tank's Mission

In 2019, thanks to the support of The European House – Ambrosetti Working Group, the “Welfare, Italia” project of the Unipol Gruppo evolved into a think tank. Its mission is to provide a tangible contribution to defining a vision of the social security system that supports the social and economic development of Italy within a perspective that is inclusive and sustainable. The “Welfare, Italia” Think Tank is also designed to be a permanent platform for discussion, sharing of ideas and assessing good practices from the public, private and non-profit sectors.

2023 Forum

The next Forum of the Think Tank  "Welfare, Italy" will be held on October 24, 2023 in Rome, at the Corsie Sistine, Complesso Monumentale Santo Spirito in Sassia.

During the event we will present the 2023 Report, which this year focuses on current demographic trends and their impacts on the labour market and social and healthcare policies, and identifies actionable policy proposals aimed at ensuring the economic sustainability of the welfare system.

The Forum will be moderated by Antonio Polito, editorialist of Corriere della Sera, and will be an opportunity for discussion among the main stakeholders of the welfare sector.

Support for the initiative is provided by a Scientific Committee comprised of Carlo Cimbri (President, Unipol Group and UnipolSai Assicurazioni); Veronica De Romanis (Professor of European Political Economy, Stanford University – Florence and LUISS – Rome); Giuseppe Guzzetti (Lawyer and philantropist; former President, Fondazione Cariplo); Walter Ricciardi (Head of Mission Board for Cancer, European Commission; Coordinator of the Scientific Committee, Human Technopole; former President, Italian National Institute of Health); Stefano Scarpetta (Director of the Department of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, OECD); Valerio De Molli (Managing Partner & CEO, The European House – Ambrosetti).
