Innovation Group


An open environment to expose, discuss, stretch and socialize ideas that could be qualified at first as out of the box, innovative, or embryonic. Ideas may represent a personal view (not specifically associated with a company).

The Innovation Group is an incubator for long term or disruptive topics, an exploratory space to road-test and help mature ideas to be then handed over to relevant Work Areas.
