Today’s meeting is with the organization Code For Europe, an international network coordinating the various experiences of social innovators from all Europe with the goal of disseminating and making available to all European cities smart solutions that will contribute to their development.

The objective of today’s meeting is to plan at best the involvement of PUSH — which only recently has become partner with Code For Europe – and its role as social innovator in Italy within the framework of this international project.

As for the other meeting, instead, PUSH will participate to the “Connected Smart Cities Conference” organized by ENoLL (European Network of Living Labs), an event launched as space for sharing ideas and discuss technology, ecosystems, and the toolkits for smart cities.

It will be an important occasion for PUSH to dialogue with international interlocutors on a key topic of its mission.

Il progetto “The Smart Innovation Island – Mobilità Connettività Turismo” –  presentato dall’aggregazione di comuni dell’Isola d’Ischia e da diverse associazioni tra cui PUSH –  ha vinto il bando EFISIO, l’iniziativa lanciata da Studiare Sviluppo in collaborazione con l’Osservatorio Nazionale Smart City – ANCI.

Il progetto mira a innovare ambiti quali la mobilità, lo sviluppo economico, l’energia e la sicurezza dei cittadini attraverso l’introduzione di nuove tecnologie e di sistemi innovativi di gestione e condivisione delle informazioni. 

L’idea è anche quella di promuovere il coinvolgimento diretto dei cittadini, delle associazioni e di tutti gli stakeholder, a partire da istituti di ricerca e università fino alle più giovani generazioni di professionisti e di progettisti di innovazione sociale, per trasferire non solo il know-how tecnico scientifico, ma soprattutto le esperienze organizzative e manageriali di livello nazionale ed internazionale al fine di replicare sull’isola di Ischia modelli virtuosi e iniziative innovative.

PUSH collaborerà al progetto mettendo a disposizione le proprie competenze e la propria esperienza nell’ambito dell’innovazione sociale guidata da nuove tecnologie e nuovi media.
