  • Identifying a way of leveraging partnerships that already exist to address current needs across additional needs, BUs or geographies
  • Creating a robust process and methodology that ‘joins the dots’, and enables innovation partnerships to be spread across multiple needs, BUs or geographies

Developing an ecosystem of new innovation partners to address future needs, including:

  • Developing a method of scouting new partners from sectors which compliment key innovation themes and the innovation strategy
  • Developing criteria to measure the suitability of new partners, both in terms of business viability and solvency, as well as their ’fit’ with Generali business and innovation strategy
