Team Finland and ITS Finland are working together with the Finnish Sustainable Growth Programme from the Transport Sector to seek new opportunities in the Italian market.

Italy’s G7 economy is expected to grow 2.5% in 2022 and 1.2% in 2023, despite a looming recession in Europe. Italy is also one of many countries to benefit from a grant from the EU’s recovery fund (RRF). As a result, billions of euros are being invested in electrification, AI, IoT and the general Europeanisation of value chains by Italian automotive, maritime and aerospace industries.

Big cities like Milan and Turin have already used some of the funds from the EU to invest in projects to reduce traffic jams, manage logistical flows and reduce emissions considerably. A project that is working on an Intermodal hydrogen powered railway system in Piedmont is a flagship example of the ambition and scale of solutions they are seeking to invest in.

Suitable high-end vendors are being sought to help the aforementioned industries. Furthermore, strong regional mobility clusters and system-integrators are interested in partnering with Finnish companies to improve their product and service portfolio for big tenders.

Any company that is interested in breaking into this market, or would like to learn more about what opportunities are available to them, should register for this webinar. It’s free to sign up and the event will be held in English. The deadline for registrations is Tuesday 8th November.
