Leonardo rewards innovation at Expo 2020 Dubai

#T-TeC 2021 awards ceremony held at Italy Pavilion

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 17 - Leonardo this week rewarded innovation at Expo 2020 Dubai with the awards ceremony of #T-TeC 2021, the Open Innovation space contest promoted by the Italian defence and aerospace giant and Telespazio, at the Italy Pavilion.
    The ceremony featured speeches by prominent representatives of the European and Emirati Space sector, including Luigi Pasquali, Space Activities Coordinator of Leonardo and CEO of Telespazio; Pierpaolo Gambini, SVP of Innovation and IP of Leonardo; and Marco Brancati, SVP of Innovation and Technology Governance of Telespazio.
    The awards were presented on Thursday on the occasion of the first Italy National Space Day to emphasise Italy's commitment to supporting the international value of the sector.
    The event was also a contribution to the Expo 2020 Knowledge & Learning Week.
    For the third #T-TeC, the contest was opened to young people from around the world and over 70 students and researchers of STEM disciplines participated.
    They came from 22 universities and research centres in nine countries on three different continents: the UAE , Argentina, Turkey, El Salvador, Italy, Belgium, France, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
    "Never before like this year has #T-TeC had an international nature," said Pasquali.
    "The fact that many teams are the result of international collaborations between universities of different countries is also particularly significant as it stands as proof that innovation - just like Space - has a strong spirit of cooperation. It is precisely due to this peculiarity that we decided to announce the winners here at the Italy Pavilion of Expo 2020 Dubai.
    "This international event par excellence is the perfect setting to underscore Leonardo's commitment to promoting innovation and cooperation". (ANSA).
