for Change - this year at his fourth edition - is an initiative organized by
Politecnico di Torino, Collège des Ingénieurs Italy and CERN IdeaSquare, the
structure of CERN in Geneva dedicated to projects of experimental innovation.
born with the aim of promote the creation of start-up able to discover
innovative solutions for the problems of the contemporary society, based on the
Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda of the United Nation. The initiative is
based on a program of “action learning”: PhD candidates from Politecnico di
Torino will work together with MBA fellows of CDI for 5 month and they will
learn through the direct experimentation of enterprise and innovation. During
these 5 months 50 young talents from the two Universities will work in
different teams - with the support of the technologies of Politecnico di
Torino, CERN, Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and Italian
Institute of Technology (IIT) - with the aim of find an innovative solution to
eight global issues, with the support of teachers, scientists and experts.
Their ideas will be presented in June during the first edition of the Italian
Tech Week. The project started with a speech of Raffaele Mauro, Endeavor Italia
CEO , about the impact innovation.
