FS Italiane as the main corporate sponsor of the Italian Tech Week in Turin

From 25 to 30 June, Turin will host one of the country’s most important events dedicated to technology and innovation: the Italian Tech Week (ITW).

Held in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Development, the Piedmont capital will host more than 15 events over four days, including conferences and seminars for students and professionals, opportunities for fund raising for startups, displays of cutting-edge technologies, and discussions and meetings with the protagonists of world-stage entrepreneurship and tech, with all events being open to the public.

The FS Group - which invests about 13% of its earnings each year in development, including research into technological solutions that can render mobility collective and shared in an increasingly integrated and sustainable way - shall be the main corporate sponsor of ITW.

Digitisation is one of the principles of the FS Group’s new 2019-2023 Industrial Plan. The plan envisages the investment of over 6 billion euro in technologies to ensure services with increased quality, encouraging people to opt for the train and abandon the private vehicles for their travels.

This “number zero” edition of ITW has already received the endorsement of the various local, Italian and European protagonists from the world of technology, culture, business and innovation including Argotech, ASI, Baker Hughes-GE, CLN, Collège des Ingénieurs, Edison, ENEL, ENI, FabLab Torino, FCA, Fondazione Agnelli, GM, Google, I3P, IREN, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italdesign, Leonardo, Magneti Marelli, Netval, Oval Money, Petronas, SNAM, Talent Garden, Thales Alenia Space, Toolbox, UniCredit and others.

The event will conclude on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 June at the Toolbox and FabLab Torino, with the participation of 250 young people in the Italian Tech WeekEnd, the largest innovative project ever attempted in Italy: 48 hours non-stop to design and create a tech idea that addresses a real problem.
