The second edition of the “Open Innovative PMI” award rolls out now. This is the first national award exclusively dedicated to innovative SMEs and is devised and organised by Bernoni Grant Thornton.

The award is aimed at monitoring, promoting and fostering best Italian innovation, by giving greater visibility to businesses with a high potential to grow.

Applications to the award are free of charge. Only businesses registered with the dedicated register for Innovative SMEs held at the Italian Chamber of Commerce can submit their applications to take part in the award. SMEs undergoing the registration process can also apply – provided that on September 24 they meet all the requirements requested by the Law to be considered Innovative.

Applications open from September 3, 2018!

All applications will be submitted to an independent panel of experts made up by representatives of Italian institutions, academia and the business community. The panel will analyse the projects submitted and select finalists for each of the three categories.

The awarding ceremony will take place on November 15, 2018 at Palazzo Mattei di Giove, in via Michelangelo Caetani 32, the seat of Centro Studi Americani in Rome.
