The Ancient Archive of Padua’s Palazzo Bo hosts the “Academic Entrepreneurship between Innovation and Artificial Intelligence” meeting as an occasion to discuss the challenges and opportunities of an ever shifting and suddenly changing world.  The meeting welcomes representative from various University spin-offs to share details about university entrepreneurships in Italy and across the world stage.

The University of Padua Rector, Daniela Mapelli opens the meeting with a greeting, followed by Margherita Cera (Councilor of the Municipality of Padua) Giovanni Baldassarri (President of Istituto EuropIA), Marco Landi  (former President of Apple and honorary President of Istituto EuropIA), and Gianni Dal Pozzo (The University of Padua Alumni Association President).

The meeting welcomes guests to share success stories from institutions and companies aimed at gaining an understanding current scenarios facing our start-ups and by proposing winning strategies and solutions. Welcomed representative include Claudia Pingue (Lead Partner responsible for the Technology Transfer Fund in CDP Venture Capital SGR – Fondo Nazionale Innovazione), Anna Mareschi Danieli (Group Executive Board Member, Danieli & C. SpA , and Vice President of Confindustria Udine), Domitilla Benigni (President of CY4GATE and the Chief Operating Officer and Board Member of Elettronica) and Chiara Corazza (Member of the #G7 Gender Equality Advisory Council and Private Sector Representative for France within the G20 EMPOWER Alliance). The meeting is moderated by the University of Padua Advisor for Academic Entrepreneurship Development, Mauro Conti.

This meeting is also an occasion to officially present the participation of University of Padua spin-offs at the largest artificial intelligence festival in Europe, the World AI Cannes Festival (WAICF).

Living in an era of constant change, it is up to us to write what lies in our future, artificial intelligence has become a fundamental part of our daily life and an element on which we rely without us being aware of it.  One wonders whether AI should be something feared, or whether it could be used towards overcoming great challenges facing the Anthropocene era.

The conclusions are entrusted to the University of Padua Vice-Rector of the Third Mission and Regional Relations, Monica Fedeli.

Open to the public, the meeting is part of the celebrations for the 800th anniversary of the University of Padua. Registration is required to attend.
