Innovation, in the heart of ADR

The launch of the first Call for Ideas establishes the path of our strategy focused on Innovation. Starting from the Hackhaton, moving on to the implementation of the new operating model aimed at promoting the innovation culture, up to the identification of a series of Innovation Ambassadors (the Innovation Cabin Crew) and the signing of international collaborations through the new network Airports for Innovation, we are now ready for the next step: engaging startups by investing € 390,000 in their ideas, sharing our expertise and focusing on the development of their projects within our Innovation Hub, located in Terminal 1 of the Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport.
Our new model of widespread innovation results in a pole of excellence aimed at enhancing local and territorial skills by attracting startups from all over the world who will have access to a unique opportunity to develop their ideas directly in an industrial hub dedicated to the aviation sector.
