Game of Drones – Online event

Starting from the example of Guglielmo Marconi and his pioneering work, the seminar will analyze how emerging technologies affect the security landscape and consequently the world geo-politics. The world in which we live is highly Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) and new technologies are radically changing societies and affecting the global power balance. From 5G to space, from Unmanned Systems to Artificial Intelligence, innovation is at the core of national and international strategies. But are the people behind these technologies (scientists, engineers, business persons, etc.) aware of and ready to handle the impact that any engineering choice is making to the world’s future?

Bio sketch: Claudio Palestini is working in the Emerging Security Challenges Division in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). He deals with capability and technological development in a number of fields, including countering drones and other asymmetric threats. Before joining NATO, he has worked in European Union institutions, dealing with the satellite navigation programme Galileo and the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) deployment. He holds a PhD in telecommunication engineering from University of Bologna (Italy).

Open Innovation Workshop

 

 

In times of uncertainty, visionary innovation is a must. But the risk associated to this kind of investment should be shared within an ecosystem, which can provide the integration of complementary knowledge. This is essentially the idea behind the concept of Open Innovation, which will be addressed in this international workshop with renown experts from Europe and the USA.

 

18:00-18:20 Introduction Giovanni Emanuele Corazza, Unibo, FGM
18:20-18:40 Open Innovation in Silicon Valley – Fabrizio Capobianco, Minerva Networks
18:40-19:00 Open Innovation in Manufacturing – Michele Poggipolini, President Confindustria Giovani
19:00-19:20 Open Innovation in the Internet – Vint Cerf, Google evangelist, Chairman Marconi Society
19:20-19:40 Q/A and Conclusions

MIC @ VEM Systems: Forsight and Creativity, Future and Futures (in Italian)

Anticipare significa cogliere i segni del futuro nel presente.
In una fase storica caratterizzata da enormi trasformazioni è necessario sviluppare attitudini prospettiche, per prepararsi a gestire le sorprese.
Dopo un veloce aggiornamento sull’attuale congiuntura storica, presenteremo alcuni aspetti degli Studi di Futuro, descrivendo in particolare la Futures Literacy.
Tra i molti scenari futuri possibili, risulta essenziale individuare il futuro preferibile, e lavorare affinché tale futuro si realizzi per la propria azienda. È questo il ruolo del pensiero creativo, ossia della capacità umana di generare idee ad alto potenziale di originalità ed efficacia orientate ad un obiettivo, capacità che costituisce il meccanismo fondamentale attraverso il quale si espande la cultura della nostra specie.
Nella seconda parte dell’incontro si illustreranno quindi le frontiere della ricerca scientifica sulla creatività, nonché alcuni principi utili alla traduzione pratica delle stesse in una realtà aziendale.

RELATORI

Prof. ROBERTO POLI, Università di Trento, Cattedra UNESCO per i Sistemi Anticipanti, Presidente AFI, Direttore del Master in Previsione Sociale

Prof. GIOVANNI EMANUELE CORAZZA, Università di Bologna, Presidente della Fondazione Guglielmo Marconi, Fondatore del Marconi Institute for Creativity

PRESENTA: Ing. STEFANO BOSSI, CEO VEM sistemi e Presidente Filiera Digital di Confindustria Emilia Area Centro


PER PARTECIPARE, REGISTRATI QUI!

La partecipazione all’evento è gratuita ed è RISERVATA ai clienti e partner di VEM sistemi e a professionisti utilizzatori delle tecnologie dell’informazione.

Per rendere omaggio a Gianni Rodari (1920-1980) nel centenario della nascita, il Comune di Sasso Marconi organizza il convegno nazionale Per una scuola fantastica: Gianni Rodari e il semaforo blu.

In programma sabato 7 marzo nelle sale del settecentesco Borgo di Colle Ameno, il convegno è rivolto in particolar modo a insegnanti ed educatori, ma è aperto a tutti coloro che lavorano per e con la scuola e a chiunque sia interessato a costruire una riflessione critica sulla didattica contemporanea, partendo dall’eredità di Gianni Rodari.

Sono previsti interventi e testimonianze sul valore della creatività (a cura di scrittori, docenti e addetti ai lavori) e laboratori tematici realizzati in collaborazione con Fondazione Guglielmo Marconi, ANPI, Ecosistema, Cooperativa “Accaparlante” e Associazione “Senza Titolo”, per declinare il concetto di didattica nei campi dell’arte, della scienza, nella storia, nella natura e nel mondo della disabilità.

QUI allegato il volantino con il programma degli interventi e tutti i dettagli sul convegno.
