In this exciting framework, Medere has brought innovation and technology to the world of foot orthotics thanks to the development of a digital production chain that, integrating the Internet of Things (IOTs), Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) modelling and additive manufacturing, guarantees both accessibility and cost-effectiveness without losing the effectiveness of a product tailored to one’s needs (see POP project page for more information). A great acknowledgement for this wonderful experience to the whole organising team of the event with a special mention for the president of the event Francesco Boccia, Ennio De Iapinis and Giuseppe Mastrodonato who allowed many young entrepreneurs to discuss the issue of digital innovation. Furthermore, the Medere team takes the opportunity to thank all the people who supported us by voting for our project.
