KEY RESEARCH QUESTIONS

The Observatory on Digital Export wants to support Italian companies in the development of export models based on digital technologies, with the ultimate goal of increasing exports of goods and services. To achieve this result, the export models enabled by the new technologies are identified and developed with reference to specific markets and product sectors. In particular the analysis has focused on the US, China and EU markets and on final consumption goods, especially food, beverages and fashion, but it is also developing the analysis of the B2B digital export market. The Observatory also wants to create opportunities for meetings and exchanges between companies, institutions, consortia and associations to establish constructive dialogue between the parties.
