On Wednesday 25 January at 3.30 p.m., at the Sala del Parlamentino of the CNEL, the Enrico Fermi Research Centre, the Institute of Economics of the Sant'Anna School and the Forum Disuguaglianze e Diversità are organising the 'Ecological Transition, a Development Opportunity for Italy', a meeting on the opportunities of ecological transition as an important driver of Italy's development. The Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna participates with the contributions of Professors Giovanni Dosi, Andrea Roventini and Maria Enrica Virgillito.

The programme and topics of the event

There are many topics addressed during the event. The introduction is entrusted to the presentation of original results concerning the technological positioning of Italy and its regions in the ecological transition compared to the rest of Europe. In particular: the readiness to seize the opportunities of the transition to less polluting productions; the interactions between the most recent green technologies and the more traditional ones; the productive sectors with greater potential for ecologically sustainable development.
These analyses, conducted by the Economic Fitness and Complexity of the Enrico Fermi Research Centre (CREF), make it possible to identify Italy's strengths, offering a direction for industrial policies and for the use of available resources that allow for a sustainable transition, environmentally compatible economic development, opportunities for good jobs and the reduction of serious economic and social inequalities.

The Institute of Economics of the Scuola Sant'Anna participates in the initiative with the speeches of three lecturers: the reports by Maria Enrica Virgillito 'Ecological transition and places left behind in Europe' and byAndrea Roventini 'Green industrial policies for sustainable growth'; finally, the participation of Giovanni Dosi in the round table on the results 'How to seize the opportunities for a just ecological transition' coordinated by Fabrizio Barca.
