CANCELLED: Due to Vittorio Caloa’s appointment as Minister for Technological Innovation and Digital Transition in the new Italian Government, he has had to withdraw from this event

Last year the former Italian PM Giuseppe Conte tasked former Vodafone CEO Vittorio Colao with chairing a group of business experts and economists to develop a plan for Italy’s recovery from the Covid 19 pandemic.

The 121-page report, dubbed the “Colao plan”, offered a roadmap for a digitalised and innovative economy, with greater gender equality and inclusion and sustainable growth.

This conversation between Mr Colao and Professor Hepburn will explore what we have learned since the outbreak of the pandemic, what we are likely to do differently next time, and how the course of the pandemic might evolve from here.
