Art Tech, an event to create a network between business and creativity


Organized by Friuli Innovazione, "Art Tech: Innovative Insights. Collaborative Business between Enterprise, Creativity and Digital Technology" was an event of the Arte&Impresa series specifically designed for entrepreneurs, artists and ICT experts.

The event, held in Udine at the Science and Technology Park Luigi Danieli, started with a Practice Workshop aimed at presenting business experiences with a strong link between creativity and innovation. Among the speakers, moderated by Il Sole 24 Ore journalist Stefano Salis, were Carlo Bach, Artistic Director at Illy Caffè and two young entrepreneurs from the regions of Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto.
During his speech, the Artistic Director of Illy Caffé pointed out the importance of enhancing and stimulating collaboration and synergies between companies, an important driver of innovation capable to support small emerging enterprises. This concept was taken by the young entrepreneurs participating as speakers, Alessandro Liani and
Isaia Busatta, who with their companies Videosystems and  Extremind, made a good use of design and collaboration to communicate the innovation of their products and services at international level.

The KooperierBar session held in the late afternoon was dedicated to networking, in which participants met in small working groups. The objective of this final session was to stimulate discussion
and exchange ideas among professionals from different sectors, to find out possible solutions to the specific needs presented by the entrepreneurs attending.

Albiz Ermacora, owner of the company "Arte&Mestieri" together with his brother Fabio, commented enthusiastically on his participation to the event. "During the last event of the INCO-NET project I took part in," - said Albiz - " I came into contact with Ernst Wieser, an Austrian artist with whom we are now developing new applications for my ecologic lime."

Art Tech was an Art&Business event, the group created in June 2013 by Friuli Innovazione upon the specific needs for collaboration with Italy of the Austrian artist and entrepreneur Ernst Wieser.
