16:30 | 17:15 - Racing: competition, technology, community

Races are the most heartfelt celebration of passion, performance and adrenaline. But these elements are increasingly enriched by other factors, such as technological evolution and sustainability. What are the technologies and the new trends? What are tomorrow’s challenges? What are the characteristics of the “new enthusiasts”?

14:30 - TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND BUSINESS: New business models for high-technology sectors During the conference, speakers will highlight the role that technologies (developed by the motorsport industry) can play in fostering the growth of other industrial sectors. An aspect that, for many analysts, may encourage a diversification of the business by companies in the sector. In this sense, short case studies of companies already operating in this field of activity will be explored in depth. Furthermore, ample space will also be given to representatives of Technology Clusters who can be at the service of companies wishing to follow this path.
