In 2019, thanks to the support of The European House – Ambrosetti Working Group, the “Welfare, Italia” project of the Unipol Gruppo evolved into a think tank. Its mission is to provide a tangible contribution to defining a vision of the social security system that supports the social and economic development of Italy within a perspective that is inclusive and sustainable. The “Welfare, Italia” Think Tank is also designed to be a permanent platform for discussion, sharing of ideas and assessing good practices from the public, private and non-profit sectors.
Support for the initiative is provided by a Scientific Committee comprised of Veronica De Romanis (Professor of European Political Economy, Stanford University – Florence and LUISS – Rome); Giuseppe Guzzetti (Lawyer and philantropist; former President, Fondazione Cariplo); Walter Ricciardi (Head of Mission Board for Cancer, European Commission; Coordinator of the Scientific Committee, Human Technopole; former President, Italian National Institute of Health); Stefano Scarpetta (Director of the Department of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, OECD); Valerio De Molli (Managing Partner & CEO, The European House – Ambrosetti).
During the Forum, the “Welfare, Italia” Think Tank 2021 Strategic Report was presented to some of the country’s key decision-makers to activate—with the contribution of national and international speakers—a constructive exchange involving the most important issues, and to transmit policy guidelines and proposals to optimize and make full use of all aspects of the national welfare system.
Special attention was given to the social-economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis as a way to contribute to the process of redesigning the welfare system within the new NRRP framework. This focus was offered in four sessions that will examine the Economy, Healthcare, Employment, social security and social policies, and Society.
