An overview of Turin capabilities, challenges, strength and weaknesses :  Tom Dealessandri Torino Municipality Assessor to: Work politics, professional education, EU projects and EU Commission Relations An overview of Turin capabilities, challenges, strength and weaknesses Slide2:  Torino in a difficult changing production environment: Difficult national economy conjuncture amplified locally mainly because of the irreversible crisis of the “Ford factory” model Ramp-down of the Industry Sector (today: 32% - the seventies: 56%) against a growth in the Trade and Services Sector (today 70% - the seventies 42%) Inside the Industry Sector it has been observed a decrease in the most traditional fields (metallurgy, textile, car making..) and a growth in more innovative field as automotive components, so important to constitute a relevant advanced Technology pole for automotive. Inside the Tertiary Sector is has been observed some stable ramp-up in the field of services for Companies, instead the growth in the Real Estate field (+5% per year) seems to be more temporary and mainly related to works for Olympics. Decrease in the foreigner export flow, only counterbalanced by the car components sector (+10,5%) The role of Institutions in managing the changes: “Defending the present to promote the future”:  The role of Institutions in managing the changes: “Defending the present to promote the future” The ramp-down of traditional industry productions MUST be a challenge for turn-around change Social management in changing process: Public Institution capability to build a net (integrating social, economic and political resources on the Territory) Defending the Present: Dedicated and integrated actions to support incomes of workers hit by the crisis and specific training to refocus their competencies. Promoting the future: “Piano Strategico della Citta di Torino” aims to promote economic growth, international visibility, ramp-up of research and training, turn to account of local heritage and culture, trade and tourism growth. Torino as a fertile soil for growth: “Leveraging on its strengths to build its future”:  Torino as a fertile soil for growth: “Leveraging on its strengths to build its future” A solid tradition on organizational competencies Strong presence of professionalism, research and technical capabilities. Good Education Institutions at secondary level, University and Post-University level. Many PMi in the field of advanced technology Good infrastructures and profitable prices on Real Estate market Good standard of life, constantly supported by Local Government Good level of services for the public (especially against national average) and well integrated local Government (Municipality, Province, Region) 2006 Winter Olympic Games as engine for growth The direction of innovation: “the Motorola case”:  The direction of innovation: “the Motorola case” The main goal of the Institutions in driving innovation is to push toward the growth of economy, the renewal of public administration and the improvement of social cohesion. Torino, which is no longer an “Industrial Town”, doesn’t aim to be a “Tertiary Town” but wants to promote a good mixture between goods production and service production. A fair balance between these two components helps in establishing a sound social cohesion, which becomes itself a competitiveness factor. The Motorola establishment in Torino took advantage and enhanced even further the cooperation among Institution, Universities and Companies (Triple helix), particularly important was the action of a “new” partner for local environment promotion: ITP. Motorola from its part is capable to bring innovation on our local territory, not as economy diversity but as refocusing of present capabilities. Final Remarks: “the transition from the Industrial Society to the Knowledge Society”:  Final Remarks: “the transition from the Industrial Society to the Knowledge Society” As application of new technologies in products and processes can innovate and revamp traditional industrial productions, in the same way interaction among different partners and know-how transfer across sectors are the two vital highways to promote the territory and its economy. The two innovation aspects cannot exist separately and Torino offers an excellent environment where they exist together. Something that can be done better: a Country-wide research scenario where guidelines, timing and funding are vague negatively impacts on the local efforts to build areas of excellence. We should go beyond the concept of “end of Industry” by moving toward a scenario where, what is known as industrial production (still relevant in this area) will be integrated in a complex world made of a mix of goods and services production, net of infrastructures and logistics, growth of Human Capital, communication and information technologies. In one sentence: the path from the Industrial Society to the Knowledge Society
