Moderator: Dario Donato, Journalist Mediaset TGCOM 24

The impact of the war in Ukraine, the commodity crisis, and the pandemic have shown how it is necessary for companies in the industry to invest in technology, data analytics, but also in the evolution of the supply chain in terms of technology that can provide predictive analysis as well as timely resolutions to disruptions in the chain. The first mission of the NRP includes investments in innovation and digitization. In this context, "Transition 4.0" is also defined, consisting of a plan of incentives implemented through tax credits that will cover research and development activities but also in innovative technologies and digital skills in the private sector. What role does open innovation play in this context? How do large companies interpret these phenomena and how do they capitalize on them? 

In the last 12 months we have seen the tech market lose a lot of value (Tesla -50%, Google -25%, Twitter ?...), linked on the one hand to the geopolitical situation, on the other hand to the recession (due to inflation, cost of finance, scarcer capital, decline in valuations, M&A activity, decline in availability of capital for Open Innovation).
