EU TECH STUDY TOUR 2017 – First Report 2017

June, 2017

The European Parliament published the first report of the EU Tech Study Tour 2017 which includes a the visit in FacilityLive and attributes the Small Valley idea to Gianpiero Lotito and FacilityLive.

“Diversity in scale, typology, organisational set-up and financial arrangements characterise the EU ICT environment, which is made up by locally rooted “Small Valleys”, including universities and networks. In that perspective, the idea of a single, US-like Silicon Valley in the EU is not a “must” to foster innovation” says the report.
