Innovation, the Italian territory and business

An article in the journal L’Industria investigates the social impact of research

Research and innovation for everyone. Even for those who – whether business or individual – are apparently far removed from the goals of new technologies and science. It is of course a question of organisation, but also of possessing the cultural capacity that can enable us to take full advantage of innovation and new technologies.

Alessandro Sterlacchini’s work, which was recently published in the journal L’Industria, is founded upon the premise that advances in science and technology are not inevitable, but can in any case be focused on improving the well-being of society as a whole. However, we need to be able to make full use of these advances, and exploit them appropriately.

“L’impatto sociale della ricerca e dell’innovazione. Ipotesi di intervento per una sua valorizzazione nel contesto europeo e italiano” (“The Social Impact of Research and Innovation: Policy Suggestions for its Enhancement in Europe and Italy” discusses a number of the measures that could be implemented by means of public intervention, and which could extend the benefits of research and innovation to wider portions of society, traditionally either partially or totally excluded. Sterlacchini dedicates particular attention to the evaluation criteria of scientific research that is primarily financed by public resources and conducted above all by universities; he also examines the types of public incentives that exist for innovative activities carried out by private companies and the use of public tenders for the supply of innovative goods and services.

The general notion derived from Sterlacchini’s analysis is that the social impact of research and innovation activities should be of major “concern” for all public policy interventions. This also applies to companies that carry out research and innovation, and which must reconcile balancing the books with the balance of the Italian territory as a whole.

Alessandro Sterlacchini’s article makes a number of valuable contributions to the existing knowledge of a complex issue – namely the social impact of research – as well as shedding light on the role that companies can have both as protagonists in the creation of innovation and as agents with a responsibility for development at territorial level.
