Think Milan's just fashion and finance? Think twice: from May 23rd, the new EIT Digital Satellite location will bring some hi-tech flavour to the city's industrial district.
The Satellite centre is moving to the Bicocca neighbourhood, an area which is home to major Universities, company headquarters and research centers.
Featuring the presence of EIT Digital's CEO, Willem Jonker the inauguration, hosted in the viale Sarca 226 premises of our partner Cefriel, will represent a tangible sign of EIT Digital's growing commitment, and an unmissable opportunity to get in touch with some of the top actors of the digital transformation in Italy.
The event will start with some opening remarks by the organization's Italy Node Director, Gian Mario Maggio and by Cefriel's CEO Alfonso Fuggetta, followed by an institutional welcome by Roberta Cocco, Digital Transformation and Citizens Services Councilor of the City of Milan.
A panel discussion will follow, in which Willem Jonker and industry players, stakeholders and representatives from large corporations (SIEMENS, COMAU) and industry associations (Confindustria) will discuss the Industry 4.0 promises and challenges in the Italian and European context.
