The scope of this edition of the Summer School Francesco Turco is to encourage the discussion about new models of research that strongly encourage academy-industry collaboration. Research works with both conceptual and empirical basis are welcome. Strong emphasis will be placed on the application of the research findings and/or on the way they can be transferred to the industrial context.
