Innovative SMEs: technological development and strong entrepreneurial culture
CELI proudly joins the Innovative SMEs placing itself among the most advanced Italian companies in research and technological development.
The Decree Law 3/2015 (Investment Compact), converted with amendments by Law 33/2015, aims to promote sustainable growth, technological development and jobs, the aggregation of a lively ecosystem of a new entrepreneurial culture devoted to innovation, as well as to promote greater social mobility, strengthening the links between universities and business and a stronger ability to attract talent and foreign capital in our country.
As reported by the Ministry for Economic Development, “the Decree Law 3/2015 has assigned a large part of the measures already planned for innovative startups to a potentially much wider audience of companies: innovative SMEs , ie all small and medium-sized enterprises operating in the field of technological innovation.
Small and medium-sized enterprises are the backbone of the economic and production system. The “breakthrough expansion” planned by the Investment Compact thus represents a logical evolution for an industrial policy that through technological development aims to promote sustainable growth and spread of a new, more entrepreneurial culture inclined to draw from the world of research and the university and to be open to international flows of human and financial capitals”.
