Guglielmo Marconi University hosted, on October 25 2018, a very interesting meeting regarding the White Book “Cross Clustering: una estrategia de desarrollo para las Mipymes”. The illustrious speakers Rainer Masera, Luciano Consolati, Andrea Bonalumi and Raffaello Benetti guided the debate. The objective of this initiative was to develop productive, entrepreneurial, technological and associative capacities of the MSMEs and business organizations of metallurgical and mechanical engineering sectors, transferring knowledge and experiences of the Cross Clustering model in Italy. In the first stage of the project, which began in September 2016, a diagnosis was made on two sectors in Chile and Argentina in order to assess the state of the art of the Medium SMEs.

Subsequently, a series of linkage activities with MSMEs and organizations initiated, including a series of webinars aimed at disseminating knowledge, good practices and collaborative work models of the Italian industry. There were also virtual business roundtables that convened Chilean, Argentine and Italian companies in the framework of collaborative work, with the objective of providing a sector analysis, study visits and training webinars and exchange trips
