The NRP, with over 80 billion euros dedicated to the South, “represents a unique opportunity to accelerate and strengthen the innovation ecosystems that are one of the keys to relaunching the country system.” This is what Massimo Antonelli, CEO of EY in Italy, opening the inaugural day of the EY Digital Summit with a focus on the South, “fundamental for designing structural and sustainable development and growth for the country. Despite the pandemic, the Mezzogiorno retains an important potential for innovation also thanks to the European resources arriving “, said Antonelli. For Dario Bergamo, EY Government and Public Sector leader, in terms of digitization, innovation, infrastructures and research,” in the southern regions Technological experiences certified at national level have arisen and consolidated, especially in the vicinity of important university centers. The funds of the NRP, together with all the other additional resources for development and cohesion, will therefore be fundamental to strengthen these ecosystems. “In addition to connectivity,” a dynamic production system, an endowment of highly qualified human and social capital and a public Smart administration are the functional elements for relaunching the South and the analysis we carried out in the South reveals the essential elements to face the challenge ”, he concluded.
