Euro-CASE is pleased to share news about the creation of the new Italian Academy of Engineering and Technology as an association. Since 2018, Italy has been represented within Euro-CASE by a Consortium composed of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), Istituto Nazionale de Fisica Nucleare (INFN), Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) and Politecnico di Torino, which aimed to create an Italian Academy of Technologies.

In January 2023, the first steering council has been elected, composed by Speranza Falciano (INFN) as President, Massimo Morbidelli (Politecnico Milano) and Francesca Zarri (CTO ENI) as Vicepresidents, Maria Chiara Carrozza (CNR President), Franco Ongaro (CTO Leonardo) and Nobel laureate Giorgio Parisi, followed by the appointment of Matteo Pardo (CNR) as Secretary General. The Academy is acting to receive official recognition and set up the industrial representation body.
