This weeklong program will underscore Italy’s position as top U.S solution provider while encouraging engagements between some of Italy’s leading companies and universities as they seek to expand existing relationships and build new ones with industry peers, suppliers and research centers.

The conference will address the following areas:

  • Advanced manufacturing and automotive: past trends, prospects and government policies
  • Industry 4.0 is now: advanced manufacturing and robotics at work
  • Automotive manufacturing and new technologies: trends and challenges
  • Invest in Italy: updates on reforms and opportunities
  • Innovation and the automotive supply chain
  • Research centers and academic institutions building public-private partnerships

A session of bilateral one-on-one meetings will follow.

In the following days, Italian delegates will entertain several site visits and meetings to build relationships with several U.S. counterparts, in addition to attending a networking event at the Italian Cultural Institute in Chicago at the presence of the Consul General of Italy, Giuseppe Finocchiaro, and of the business community.

On June 29, the Italian delegation is scheduled to have site visits in the greater Rockford, Illinois, area to explore synergies and partnership opportunities.

The Innovation Days 2018 Detroit-Chicago program has the official support of the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, Automation Alley, Chicago Metro Metal Consortium, Federmacchine, Italian-American Business Council of Michigan, Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers’ Association, Michigan Economic Development Council, Regional Growth Partnership (Toledo, Ohio), Rockford Area Economic Development Council and Oakland County (Michigan).
