RU and TSCAI agree with the goal of promoting in Italy the masterclasses offered and organized by the TASC Academy.
TSCAI will have the exclusivity in Italy for offering this training services. Thus, The TASC Academy courses will be allowed, for Italian residents, only to TSCAI members.
The TASC Academy supports individuals and organizations in their efforts to develop, implement and manage smart city endeavors effectively. The Academy targets local communities first of all – be it a large metropolitan city or a community somewhat smaller in size. In addition, the Academy can facilitate a broader array of digitization agendas: be it a digital innovation strategy for a region, a smart city program, or a digitization agenda for an entire country or state.
The TASC Academy conveys knowledge and know-how, facilitates an exchange of best practices, fosters an evolving global community of practitioners and leaders, and provides tailored, structured guidance during and post-training. The Academy serves as a platform of ‘prosumers’ where varying partners and peers can consume yet also produce and share best practices & know-how.
