Now in its second edition, the prize rewards projects based on innovative ideas and technology, implemented in a collaborative way between all parties involved: Vendors, Partners and Clients
The striking terrace of “Copernico Isola S32” in Milan, Italy, overlooking the Financial and Tech District of the city, was the venue chosen yesterday May 4, 2023 for the 2nd Edition of the Italian Project Awards (#IPA2K22), an initiative addressed to the ICT professional world and conceived by the G11 Media Publishing Group of Italy, which also backs InnovationOpenLab.
The Award rewards the best projects developed during the previous year, based on innovative ideas and technology and implemented in a collaborative dynamic interaction between the parties involved, such as Vendors, Partners and Clients. Four prizes were awarded this year, as opposed to the single prize awarded in the 1st edition last year.
The projects have been reviewed and evaluated in two main stages: a first evaluation carried out by the editorial staffs of ChannelCity and ImpresaCity, and a second evaluation in which the editorial staffs were joined by the “Giuria di Qualità” (Quality Panel), composed of academics, market analysts, and corporate innovation managers.
