Innovation for Change
         
 
Innovation 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. 
I4C has 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.
