What Investors look for in a changed World with Gianmario Verona
Science in times of COVID
This cycle of seminars aims at analyzing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic from different points of view. The world of science influences and is, in turn, itself influenced by various other fields complementary to it.
Within this frame, we have decided to offer IIT Alumni and the entire IIT population with the opportunity to think about aspects that are not directly visible on their daily empiric work, but which are connected to it, with the guidance of top-notch experts in sectors ranging from economics to history.
Our first meeting was with the Dean of Bocconi University, Gianmario Verona, who provided us with his unique insights on what he call the "fourth revolution", the digital one, and how this pandemic allowed us to see the real impact of this revolution, as we were able to keep up many activities despite not being able to move from home that we would not have been able to carry out just a few years ago. He laso talked about the direction of investments and answered some of your questions.
