Our future is destined to be filled with novelties and surprises. Predictions of the imminent take over by the Metaverse, the intangible, but very real NFTs, the shocking advancement and accessibility of generative AI are only a tiny portion of what we call innovation. When we think of innovation we must think of technology, but also processes and mindset. Change is omnipresent, continuous and inevitable, but it requires knowledge and vision to embrace Innovation as a tool for improving lives and overcoming challenges.

For several years The British Chamber of Commerce for Italy has chosen to focus on innovation as one of its four theme pillars.On 23 November 2023, starting at 9:00am, the Chamber will hold a conference on innovation with keynote speaker Indro Mukerjee, CEO at Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.

Indro Mukerjee is CEO of Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency. He is a highly experienced technology CEO and business leader with a track record of leading innovation and technology commercialisation in businesses of all sizes across the world, from publicly listed and multinational corporations to new venture and private equity backed technology companies.
Indro has extensive experience of leading fast growth; start-up; spinouts; restructuring; turnaround and successful M&A. Much of his time was spent in Asia and the US.
With a strong personal interest in the development of skills for industry, he cofounded the UK Electronics Skills Foundation and served on the SEMTA (now Enginuity) board for nine years, where he was also chair of the committee managing their investment fund. He is also a passionate advocate for diversity, equality, and inclusion.
Indro has a degree in engineering science from University of Oxford, is a graduate of the Wharton Advanced Management Program and speaks several European languages.
Indro was elected as an Honorary Fellow of The Royal Academy of Engineering in September 2022.

We will also have the opportunity to hear from industry leaders and academicians who will guide us as we look beyond the sensational news and attempt to embrace innovation with fellow Chamber members and distiguished guests.

We invite you to join the conversation and contribute to shaping the future for the greater good.
