CAPITAL FROM OUR LANDS,
SKILLS THAT BUILD UPON A SOLID BASE.
Italy is rife with character and it is
steeped in tradition with specific know-how. The EDI ecosystem enhances these characteristics by creating centres of excellence that reflect the natural vocations of the Italian territories.
Organisations that have specialized skills on specific topics related to local culture and vocations are now able to enhance local excellence on a national level. “Each area has its own local capital": the EDI themes support the development of these excellences which in turn become collective assets of the entire system.
EDI INNOVATION CENTER
National connection organization that defines the strategic development policies of the network and develops skills, relationships, and solutions to support the activities of the thematic EDIs.
AN ECOSYSTEM OF SKILLS
EDI CREATES A SYSTEM FOR THE DIGITAL INNOVATION SUPPLY CHAIN.
