confronti 2004


25 novembre 2004


The 2004 edition was devoted to the theme of ‘technology and innovation’. These two factors take on different shapes: products, processes, organisation, markets, and different dimensions: microeconomic, macroeconomic, and mesoeconomic. As such, they are fundamental to the processes of competitive growth and development of individual firms, as well as to those of whole territorial sectors and systems. The 2004 edition of confronti aimed at achieving a fuller understanding of the growth and development mechanisms of the cantonal economy, always from an inter-regional point of view.
