XXXIV AiIG Scientific Meeting
Humanizing technologies for a better society. Purpose-driven innovation to empower people
Politecnico di Milano – Polo territoriale di Lecco
The 34th edition of the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Italian Association of Management Engineering (AiIG) will be held in Lecco, on October 12-13 2023, organized by Politecnico di Milano.
This edition’s theme is “Humanizing technologies for a better society. Purpose-driven innovation to empower people”. The meeting will be dedicated to gain a better understanding of the
complex relationship between people, communities and technologies. The overall objective of the discussion is to propose and analyze new models of innovation, technology development and adoption conceived to mitigate the unintended consequences of innovation, to better respond to societal grand-challenges and to accelerate the transition towards more sustainable and inclusive economic and industrial paradigms.
There is a pressing need to rethink and reshape the current model of innovation, driven by the idea of super-performance and superfunctionality of technology and the imperative of profit maximisation for shareholders, and move instead towards a more balanced model, centred on the social dividends of technology that fully reconciles the human, social and environmental implications of industrial production with the economic and financial ones.
The ambition of the conference is to anticipate a near-term future in which sustainability and innovation will converge in a unique, single and undetachable meaning, enabling deep-purpose business models and sustainable growth.
