PlusValue a MIND Innovation Week. A Milano, da lunedì 8 a sabato 13 maggio, si terrà la MIND Innovation Week, una settimana in cui il distretto si aprirà alla città e al mondo con una maratona di quasi 100 eventi che metteranno in dialogo appassionati ed esperti di scienza, salute, sostenibilità, impatto, tecnologia, urbanistica, per poter continuare a migliorare nella missione di costruire non solo un hub dell’innovazione competitivo a livello globale, ma anche e soprattutto un nuovo pezzo di Milano di cui innamorarsi e in cui continuare a tornare per mille motivi diversi.

Ben 9 (!) eventi co-organizzati dal team PlusValue
La potenza di questo ecosistema dell’innovazione emerge con forza proprio dalla rete di relazioni che nascono non solo dalla passione per i questi temi e lavori, ma soprattutto dalla meraviglia e dalla gratitudine per ciò che possiamo far accadere intorno a noi, pur tra mille piccole e grandi difficoltà, e che desideriamo curare, comunicare e trasmettere!

PlusValue’s participation in the MIND Innovation Week: events, talks, discussion panels and more
As part of the MIND Innovation Week (MIW), that will take place in MIND – Milan Innovation district from the 8th to the 13th of May, PlusValue will host a series of events, talks and roundtables in collaboration with other MIND partners.
The aim is to bring together international speakers to discuss and highlight the meaning and significance of innovation as an agent of positive change for people and planet.

In the last few years, we have demonstrated at MIND the value and centrality of innovative projects for the creation of an ecosystem where research and enterprise, public and private, impact and competitiveness complement and reinforce each other.
This dynamic is fundamental in terms of urban regeneration and attraction of investment and innovative enterprises but also when talking about continuous exchange with other excellent districts at a European level.
We warmly invite you to join us and contribute to the discussion and to subscribe to the MIW website to receive updates about the week!
Here below you can find a preview of our participation in the MIND Innovation Week.

Lendlease, SDA Bocconi School of Management, PlusValue, Progetto europeo T-Factor
When we talk about ‘Urban Regeneration’ we are talking about interventions and urban-scale renovation and redevelopment programmes that, by addressing the existing building stock, limit soil consumption while safeguarding the landscape and the environment.
The event will be an opportunity to exchange views with experts and policy makers on the main issues related to urban regeneration: Sustainable Mobility, New forms of Living (social housing, built-to-rent and senior living) , temporary uses and new forms of temporary constructions.

IRCCS Galeazzi Sant’Ambrogio, PlusValue, StratejAI, Lendlease
Words like telemedicine, digital therapies, bioinformatics, wearables are now part of our everyday lives, and governments and companies alike are investing heavily in programmes aimed at digitising the health sector. But what do we actually
mean when we say that data and artificial intelligence are the future of healthcare? In this event, MIND’s stakeholders will discuss some of the most advanced European experiences related to the use of data and artificial intelligence in the diagnostic, therapeutic and preventative fields, with a focus on the relationship between personalised medicine and value-based healthcare, technology and ethics, regulation and experimentation, basic research and innovation, with the aim of laying the foundations for new international collaborations.

Università degli Studi di Milano, Fondazione Triulza, PlusValue, FrancoAngeli Editore
Despite the fact that girls now make up well over half of the university student population, the number of women enrolling in scientific degrees and reaching leadership positions in traditionally male- dominated fields such as physics, mathematics and engineering, is still too low.
In a dialogue with Maria Pia Abbracchio and Marilisa d’Amico, authors of the book “Women in Science”, we will deconstruct some of the stereotypes at the root of this scenario, retrace the stories of some exceptional female scientists who, from Ancient Rome to modern days United States and Italy, have led to fundamental advances in science, and finally address future prospects and solutions, in the hope of contributing to building a ‘home’ for the female scientists of today and tomorrow.
Light lunch available for registered participants.

10th of MAY 18:00 -19:30
T-Factor, PlusValue, Università degli Studi di Milano
The European project T-Factor, together with PlusValue and the University of Milan, will present a round table on the topic of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). AR and VR are becoming increasingly predominant in our professional and personal lives, recreating a virtual world closely connected to the real one, enriching and improving it by also creating new opportunities.
We will be questioning the impact and implications that the use of these new technologies is having and will have on our lives in the coming years, and we will do so with authoritative voices from different fields: medical, scientific, entrepreneurial, educational and design.
Following the round table, we will invite you to The Hive to visit the travelling exhibition ‘Tailor-Made Organs’, promoted by T-Factor, Università degli Studi di Milano and PlusValue, inaugurated in Brera on the 30th of March.
The exhibition hopes to increase visitors’ awareness of the innovative power of new technologies applied to the medical field and its impact on the healthcare system, patients and families, the medical team and many other related parties. The exhibition presents 3D printed human organs from the multidisciplinary scientific and technological research project PrintMed3D.

Enterprise Europe Network, Finlombarda, Regione Lombardia, PlusValue, Fondazione Triulza
ESG criteria applied to companies define how they respond to environmental challenges, treat their people and administrate their business. They have increasingly become a key success factor, and have characterised the enterprises that project themselves into the future and recognise the change occurring as an opportunity to grow and innovate.
The idea at the heart of ESG is simple: companies are more likely to generate excellent returns if they create value not only for their owners but for all stakeholders involved (employees, customers, suppliers) as well as for the environment and society at large.
This seminar is for SMEs: to give them a challenge as well as concrete guidance on how to turn Environmental, Social and Governance aspects into performance-enhancing factors in the short and long term.

SDA Bocconi School of Management, Milano&Partners, Lendlease, Human Technopole, PlusValue, Cariplo Factory
MIND was created to catalyse the extraordinary Milanese and Lombardy research and innovation ecosystem, accelerating the process of technology transfer from research (13 universities, 19 IRCCSs and hundreds of public and private research centres) to market, with a special focus on the Life Sciences sector, a strong asset of the Lombardy ecosystem with great development potential at the global level, and emerging deep-tech approaches.
Through the voices of some of the protagonists of MIND and the city of Milan, we will focus on how the district is organising itself with a series of new infrastructures and services aimed at attracting and integrating in the quickest and most effective way international companies and talents wishing to access the European market and competitively develop their own research and innovation projects.

Confindustria Dispositivi Medici Servizi, Bio4Dreams, PlusValue, Infinite Vision,Pink, Lendlease
The collaboration between different players within an innovation system and the sharing of knowledge and skills can help the development of the medical device (MD) sector in our country as well as facilitate the creation and market releases of new technological solutions.
The event is an opportunity for discussion and dialogue between companies in the MD sector, institutions, and stakeholders in the health supply chain. The discussion hopes to position open innovation as a strategic lever for the development of the sector.
The initiative was born to launch the first edition of Confindustria Dispositivi Medici’s project ‘Primary Site’. The project was founded in collaboration with MIND, and as a partnership with Bio4Dreams, IRCCS Galeazzi, Infinite Vision, PlusValue and PInK.
After the success of the pilot edition of ‘Primary Site’, the project has grown and hopes to support innovation in the health sector, by delivering training services and practical support to startups and SMEs to help medical device certification.
