The event was an opportunity to discuss how companies need to grow in a sustainable and resilient way to remain competitive on the market, by supporting the digital transition and moving towards the new paradigm of the circular economy, aiming at a reduction in waste and a radical rethinking in the conception of products.
Following an introductory moment of reflection, the discussion continued in the following thematic rooms:
1. manufacturing sector, about the digital and circular economy;
2. agritech and food sector where the efficient use of raw materials and water was discussed, but also how support policies are needed to implement the technologies;
