By Luca Cavone

International Correspondent

Milan, Italy




We are back this month with a great report rich of interesting news from the field of projects!

The main contributions are coming from business, government and associations.

We begin sharing the initiatives recently developed by IPMA Italy, in particular we emphasize IPMA Italy 2015 Award, the competition for members to provide articles based on “experiences and best practices for the success of projects”. Still on IPMA side we report about the First National Forum for Young Project Manager, the event held in Florence in early October.

Later we introduce a couple of initiatives dealing with Innovation: the first it is closed by a few days in Bologna, the fourth edition of Smart City Exhibition, the annual meeting focused on issues of public administration and innovative projects in urban centers. A great interest was arisen also by the re-opening of the Ultra-wideband project under the guidance of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

Finally some news from the construction side, with an update about CityLife projects, that are reshaping the urban “face” of Milan.

Enjoy the reading!
