How the latest communications technologies are furthering economic research


Telecom Italia is enriching the discussions at the “Nobels in Venice – III Millennium Colloquia” event by bringing its unique input and thoughts to the topics under debate. The company is also presenting the first ever Telecom Italia Prize for Leadership on Business & Economic Thinking.

On 3 December 2002 the Telecom Italia Future Centre – the technological innovation museum that opened recently in the former San Salvador monastery – is hosting some of the eight Nobel Economics Prizewinners invited to Venice for the III Millennium Colloquia. Participants at the symposium will be discussing how the latest information and communications technologies have changed the way they undertake research, and the effects these technologies have had on their everyday lives.
The round table is being held in the magnificent setting of the Refectory Hall, frescoed by Giulio Romano pupil Fermo Ghisoni. The event is being co-ordinated by Andrea Monti, well-known thinker and presenter of Sfera, the popular science programme broadcast on the La 7 channel.

Later in the day Marco Tronchetti Provera, Chairman of Telecom Italia, will be making the presentation of the first ever Telecom Italia Prize for Leadership on Business & Economic Thinking. The award was established by Telecom Italia to raise the international profile of disciplines that have had, and continue to have, a major impact on corporate business thinking.
The candidates for this year´s Prize are: Edward de Bono (Thinking), Richard Normann (Strategy), Michael J. Spendolini (Benchmarking), Robert Kaplan (Balanced Scorecard) and Philip Kotler (Marketing).
