The Open Innovation Summit also stands out a one of the eight appointments sponsored by GIOIN, Gasperini Italian Open Innovation Network. It is the first network of Italian companies who want to expand in the field of innovation thanks to new technologies proposed by startups. This network was conceived by Enrico Gasperini, founder of Digital Magics, who prematurely died in November 2015. Gasperini was an innovation pioneer and the network named after him offers companies access to specific information, training and sharing of best practices to access a wide range of support tools. These tools certainly work as new inputs to face new challenges and the need to be always innovative and effective many companies are confronted with.
