6 May 2016

The start of the SMART-Map - RoadMAPs to Societal Mobilisation for the Advancement of Responsible Industrial Technologies, that involves the Bassetti Foundation's involvement over the coming 30 months to spread responsible innovation within the European industry context, with colleagues for Denmark, UK, Germany, Spain, Hungary and Austria.
The objective is to discuss and co-design responsible research and innovation practices in cutting edge sectors such as 3D printing in bio-medicine, precision medicine and synthetic biology, with companies, researchers and civil society representatives. Three innovative trajectories with the capacity to change prevention and cure scenarios and the wider bio-medical world.
A presentation event [7] was held at the Foundation, with the presence of Professor Francesco Lescai, biotechnologist at the University of Aarhus (Denmark). Images of the event are available QUI [8].

27-28 April 2016

In 2013 The Bassetti Foundation together with Triennale, a group of designers and institutions (Regione Lombardia, Comune di Milano, Politecnico) and intelectuals promoted the Innovating With Beauty mission in San Fransisco. It was a meeting of two avant-gardes, on the one hand that technological from California, generators of the web that today digitalizes manufacturing, and on the other exponents of "doing things beautifully", intent to reinvent the Leonardesque workshop tradition.
Three years later the Bassetti Foundation in collaboration with the curator Stefano Micelli and Polifactory, brought moments of debate with hosts from across the globe to the Triennale XXI, New Craft section. The Labour after Labour theme readdresses the idea of the metropolis: global cities crossed by innovation flux that transforms information into objects: in which new companies team up with and re think the relationship between work, consumption and production.
Here [10] the program of the 2 day event.
Here [11] the presentation of the "Models after Models: reversing the innovation pyramid" panel.
Here [12] photos of the event.
As a follow up complete videos of the meeting and a detailed report are to be published.

Novara Scholé is an open innovation project that works through the form of Dialogue with Casa Bossi. A theatre in which the actors are students, businessmen, visionaries and citizens. It is a school of connections, an example of C-School, the "eutopic" proposal of Diotima Society to organize the transformation of work, business, finance and education.
Here [20] the presentation of the event and the fundamental concepts of the idea of C-School.

May - June 2016

Recently Massimiano Bucchi published his book "Per un pugno d'idee" (Bompiani Editore). The back cover explains: "from the coffee maker to the Kalashnikov, from the mouse to the spaghetti western: when the world is changed by a simple but overwhelming idea". We asked the author to narrate some of the cases through which the network of responsibility is brought into play by inventions or discoveries that become innovation, the achievement of the improbable. Here [24] find the video of the meeting with Bucchi.

from April 2016

Stefano Regondi is the Director of Extra Moenia, the study centre that publishes the periodical for Bruno Mondadori - Pearson. We interviewed him because Extra Moenia and Fondazione Giannino Bassetti some time ago began collaborating on the journal both online and in hard copy.
Two articles by Regondi are already online:
La robotica applicata alla riabilitazione [26] (13 April 2016) the first of 3 articles dedicated to the application of robotics in hospitals, in both treatment and rehabilitation. La robotica applicata alla chirurgia [27] (17 June 2016):until today robots had the function of assisting and strengthening or adding precision to the interventions of the surgeon. Recent developments are numerous and wide ranging, and develop quicker in some areas than in others.
The articles sit within an area that the Foundation is Bassetti Foundation is intensively studying with SMART-map, more of which can be found in the "Responsibility in Innovation & Governance e statehood".

Now that the theme of responsible innovation addressed by the Bassetti Foundation for more than 20 years has become an argument that is key for a European working community (and much more), it is important to follow the more brilliant and interesting visions within the field.
"The Metis of Responsible Innovation" is the title of the lecture that prof. Phil Macnaghten, Professor of Technology and International Development, delivered at Wageningen University. We offer a link to the video and review of the major themes here [29].
