Sudden changes and continuous technological innovation make the work environment constantly evolving: workers and companies have to face the issue of skills obsolescence. Hence the Mission to help organisations define key competences in the company, as well as to help people acquire those competences that are fundamental to preserving their relevance and productivity.

Telling this Mission is the Museum of Italian Design at the Triennale di Milano, which through iconic objects recounts the technological and cultural evolution of our country.

Programme:

- 5:00 pm: meeting at the entrance to the Triennale

- 5.15 pm: a guide will take us through a selection of works from the Museum of Italian Design, one of the most iconic and representative exhibitions in Milan, which has always been the innovative hub of Italian design. 

- 6-8 pm: Networking aperitif
