Italy Growth: the BEST Scholarship Case

We are glad to announce our annual gathering that this year will be organized and hosted by Radio Dimensione Suono (RDS), a mayor Italian radio network on July 9th in Rome.

This year the event will focus on  the BEST Scholarship, a program in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy to Italy, U.S.-Italy Fulbright Commission and Invitalia that since 2006 awards young entrepreneurs, economists and researchers. It will be also an opportunity to talk about Italy and US joint economic activities for 2014-2015 and to present IB&II achievements on its third anniversary.

The panel that will involve Italian representatives coming from politics, media and corporation, as well as from the startup ecosystem, will be introduced by John Phillips, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Italy and San Marino.

Paola Sartorio, Executive Director at U.S.-Italy Fulbright Commission and Fernando Napolitano, president of the steering committee of BEST program will introduce the BEST Scholarship 2014-1015 winners.
