“L’Innovazione Che Parla Italiano” (Innovation that Speaks Italian) Award
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in collaboration with PNICube, the Italian Association of Competitions for University Incubators and Local Business Plans, are honouring Italian start-ups that achieve significant success abroad in the fields of ICT, Science, Engineering and Technology, with its “L’innovazione che parla italiano” (Innovation that Speaks Italian) award.
 
The awards will be jointly presented to the recipients by the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mr. Paolo Gentiloni, and the Italian Minister of Education, Universities and Research, Ms. Stefania Giannini, at a gala ceremony during the  XX Summit of Scientific Attachés (couldn't find any summit with that name - better double check)  to be held in Rome next year (2017).
