Celebrating Innovation: JCU Attends ANGI's Annual Award Ceremony

On Friday December 14, 2018, Associazione Nazionale Giovani Innovatori (ANGI), the leading Italian non-profit organization that promotes innovation in every field, held its Annual Award Ceremony at the Chamber of Deputies. It united innovators in business, education, technology and more, to celebrate their accomplishments in pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

John Cabot University, which has recently become an academic partner of ANGI, was well represented, with some twenty students and alumni who were inspired by the event. President Franco Pavoncello conferred one of the awards to Sara Roversi, founder of the Future Food Institute and Food Innovation Program. Pavoncello commented, “We can’t build the future if we do not take our past with us,” in recognition of Roversi’s work.

The “preview” of the event, held on Friday, December 7, 2018, saw John Cabot University student and Paralympic fencing champion Bebe Vio receiving the Innovation Leader Award from ANGI President Gabriele Ferrieri, who said, “Bebe is a role model and an example for all of us.”

John Cabot University and the Institute for Entrepreneurship are proud to be part of this national network of young innovators.
