Establishing a dialog with the existing structures of the Nation State, and especially those who are elected or appointed to design, approve and enact policy around issues of technologies and practices that impact the lives of millions of citizen. It is especially pleasing when the desire for a dialog starts there, as it happened a few weeks ago when a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of the Parliament, reached out to us asking if we were available to speak.

This coming September the 30 we will be in Rome to start what hopefully is going to be just the first of many other opportunities for a constructive debate. The shift towards the decentralized structures of the Network Society is unstoppable, and it is up to all of us to make sure that it arrives in a manner that is constructive and as smooth as possible.

The meeting is open to the public, with registration required within Sept 29, and strict dress code for participation.

The agenda of the meeting is the following:

18:00—18:10 Introduction Irene Tinagli
18:10—18:30 “Decentralization of the State’s pillars” David Orban
18:30—18:45 “Network Society Italia” Cosimo Orban
18:45—19:00 “Open data and inequality dynamics” Giacomo ‘Mimmo’ Cosenza
19:00—19:15 “Innovation, bioenergy, and biochemicals: reality e opportunity” Andrea Di Stefano
19:15—20:00 Q&A
