Innovazione per lo sviluppo

“Innovazione per lo Sviluppo” is a joint initiative promoted by Fondazione Cariplo, in collaboration with Compagnia di San Paolo and Fondazione CRT. The initiative has the following objectives:

  • foster the study of action models and pilot projects to test new technology solutions in the area of international cooperation and social innovation;
  • foster the re-use and adaptation of already existing technology products and services in those countries that are targeted by the development initiatives of the Foundations;
  • promote the use of data mining applied to social innovation and international cooperation, fostering a coalition between the actors of international development and the industry;
  • promote a culture of innovation (represented by of digital fabrication labs and makers, start-ups, incubators and research centers) in the areas that are most relevant for the Foundations.
