About us

The Institute for Competitiveness (I-Com) is a think-tank founded in 2005 by a group of scholars, professionals and managers, with offices in Rome and Brussels. The objective of I-Com is to promote debates and analyses on competitiveness concerning innovation, in the Italian, European and international politico-economic contexts. The main areas of interest of I-Com are: digitalization, energy, innovation, health and institutions. In 2017, I-Com joined the Global Trade and Innovation Policy Alliance, a worldwide network of 25 independent think-tanks from five different continents, each active in the fields of innovation and international trade. The president of I-Com is the economist Stefano da Empoli.
