Digital learning and indoor connectivity
Among the guests of TalkFOR5G Maria Cristina Messa, Minister of University and Research, who spoke about the future of education: “We want to plant the pillars of our future, focusing primarily on training and digital skills, which are essential for success” – she said -. We need to promote dialogue between public and private sectors, which is fundamental for progress, a dialogue that in Italy is very complicated: the public does not trust the private sector, the private sector finds the public sector slow. We must strive to think differently, incentivize funding and work on reforms, in order to rebuild a relationship that is fundamental for the future of our country.” “Partnerships are the keys to PNRR’s success. They can be a way to build industrial leadership that otherwise does not create itself. The element of competition, in scientific research, will not disappear, but it will be increasingly important to collaborate and build alliances for the good of the country,” adds Maria Chiara Carrozza, CNR President.
Giovanni Ferigo, CEO of INWIT, stressed the importance of digital learning as reported by Key4Biz: “The university world was among the first to accelerate the process of digital learning to ensure accessibility to services. As INWIT, we have signed agreements with many universities, as a result we have enabled indoor connectivity, providing universities with infrastructures that allow the optimal reception of the signal of mobile operators, including 5G technology.”

Simonetta Iarlori, Leonardo’s Chief People, Organisation and Transformation Officer, said, “We are constantly working on innovation and research, with the aim of developing innovative skills to enhance our offerings, always with a focus on employee training.” Giovanni Lo Storto, General Manager of LUISS Guido Carli University, shares the same opinion: “We can do an extraordinary job with technology, even in education. A job that makes us understand that we can transform our approach from digital first to digital by default”.
