The event, born by a joint committment of Municipality of Bologna, Emilia Romagna Region and LEPIDA S.p.A, foresees a set of presentations and moments of reflections on Wireless, starting from the territorial cooperation experience of the PIKE project, funded by the INTERREG IVC programme as capitalisation project – fast track.
