ACCELERATE THE RESTART

Digital transformation, Sustainability, Innovation, and Learning are the keywords that we hear most repeated in this last period. The pandemic has produced a total transformation in the way in which society, businesses, and institutions conduct their daily activities and interactions, urging the need to act faster on these issues to face the restart that will lead us towards future normality. That’s why, this year, Festinno with its thematic orientation seeks to collect experiences and suggestions of this ongoing change and offer opportunities for reflection and ideas to accelerate the restart.
