OPEN INNOVATION SUMMIT: Cities as engines of innovation and inclusive growth: 5-7 April, Turin

OIS 2017 will explore the key enabling factors of cities’ capacity to innovate, prosper and share the benefits of growth with all. OIS 2017 will bring together leaders from governments, cities, corporates and civil society organisations to share successful practices, models and ideas, in the spirit of mutual learning and exchange. Turin will host the main event on 5-7 April, as a European middle-size city that has proven able to develop and implement a post-industrial strategy in order to remain competitive on the international stage and share with the whole community the benefits that come from that. An International call for Solutions for Civic and Smart City technologies has been launched and the winners will be showcased in the Tech Demonstrator of the Open Innovation Center of the City of Turin, Open Incet, where the main event will take place.

By gathering 100 selected relevant stakeholders, OIS 2017 intends to explore the key enabling factors of cities’ capacity to innovate and compete on the global stage, and to nurture new partnerships at the international level.
The Summit will take place at Open Incet, the Open Innovation Center of the City of Turin managed by FGB in partnership with local and national innovation players.
The event is designed to provide the opportunity to learn from and network with the world’s more innovative cities, top-level experts, thought leaders, policy makers, entrepreneurs/startuppers and innovation intermediaries. Your great deal of experience would be key in order to share successful practices, models and ideas, in the spirit of mutual learning and exchange.
