Published: 14 October 2008

Dr. Marco Bertoni, a Postdoc Fellow who graduated from Politecnico di Milano earlier this year, gave a talk that focused on the key characteristics of product development in an Italian perspective. He talked about the the Italian industry landscape, which is dominated by small and medium-sized enterprises (often family-owned) working closely together in regional clusters, and he further talked about the concept 'Made in Italy', which signifies high-quality, stylish products which originate from Italy's world-famous furniture, food, clothing and luxury car industries. Dr. Bertoni also gave an overview of how research and education in the product development arena is carried out today, and how these activities differ from corresponding activities in Sweden.
