MIND – Milan Innovation District reboot plan for Italy

with Filippo Addarii & Paule Ansoleaga Abascal

In our 1st BCCI Inclusive Finance webinar, we explored the fiscal and monetary resources needed to keep the system afloat during this pandemic crisis. On our 2nd virtual gathering, we discussed how to use those resources to build back better. We highlighted the role ofsustainable finance as a powerful force-for-good, an essential tool to support the real economy, foster innovation and bring about social, environmental and economic progress.

This time, we would like to discuss a real case on how to pursue private interests along with public value by leveraging on open innovation. We will host Filippo Addarii, Founding Partner and CEO of PlusValue Advisory ltd., strategic consultancy firm based in London and specialised in designing innovation ecosystems to drive value creation together with social impact. PlusValue’s flagship project is MIND – Milan Innovation Districtthe €2bn regeneration of the 1m sqm site where EXPO2015 took place. This is a strategic project for Italy combining a brand new neighbourhood of Milan with an innovation district specialised in life science and sustainable smart city solutions. Together with Filippo we will explore how to build an innovation ecosystem like MIND and the potential of impact investing to catalyse the potential of the ecosystem for people and society. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that we need to reimagine our cities and invest to make them resilient to the challenges of our  time.
