We are a team with multi-industry experiences and areas of expertise with a great passion for innovation. We believe Open Innavation is an important factor to achieve Poste Italiane Strategic Plan’s goals.  

«Open Innovation is a paradigm that assumes that firms can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as the firms look to advance their technology. Open Innovation combines internal and external ideas into architectures and systems whose requirements are defined by a business model.» (Henry Chesbrough, 2006)

The main objectives of Open Innovation that constitute the foundations of our mission are:
  • Knowing - Disseminate within Poste Italiane Group a wide knowledge of the most innovative trends in technology and the best performing attitudes under a business perspective. We work to offer the best innovative solutions through a deep study of market scenario and anticipating our current and prospect customer needs.
  • Selecting - Identify valid partners to improve our current products and services; verify with tests and experiments the impacts that "disruptive technologies" could have on Poste Italiane's business.
  • Addressing - Coordinate and contribute to initiatives with the aim of increasing profitability, impact and future sustainability of Poste Italiane Group. By defining the medium and long-term target positioning on innovation issues, we want to grasp the challenges in advance to make changes in the Group's operational and business areas.
