New call to attract innovative investments in Emilia-Romagna


The Region ranks first in Italy in terms of GDP growth and job creation, thanks to an anti-cyclical policy that resulted in €20 billion in investments over the past four years from regional, national and EU funds.
Moreover, the Region is offering €35 million in financial support to companies with projects based on research and development and stable job creation. The previous two rounds of this incentive program resulted in €52 million in funding creating 1,400 new jobs.
The long term planning ability is evident in the Big Data and artificial intelligence Technopole in Bologna, which calls for a total investment that could reach €360 million: €100 million to build the infrastructure supporting the Technopole; €100 million in 2019 to support industrial research and advanced training; and €35 million for the above-mentioned incentives. A further €125 million could be added to host a super computer at the Bologna Technopole that would catapult Emilia-Romagna’s world ranking in terms of computing capacity from nineteenth place to fifth, positioning it as a European computing platform and an international digital hub.
The event - held at the Foreign Press Association in Milan - has been moderated by Jennifer Clark, with the participation of the following speakers:

  • Stefano Bonaccini, President Regione Emilia-Romagna
  • Alessandra Lanza, Senior Partner Prometeia
  • Eugenio Sidoli, AD Philip Morris Italia
  • Nicola Poleschi, Managing Director EON Reality Italia
  • Dino Brancale, Managing Director AVL Italia
  • Marta Testi, Borsa Italiana, Head of ELITE Italy & Europe
