OverTheBlock is a Links Foundation’s initiative carried out by a multidisciplinary team of innovation researchers under the directorship of Enrico Ferro. The aim is to promote a wider awareness of the opportunities offered by the advent of exponential technologies in reshaping the way business is conducted and society is governed.

More specifically, the work carried out looks at the interplay between technological evolution, strategic management and public policy with the intent to provide key decision makers with:

  • an overview of industry-specific disruption trends
  • a clearer understanding of how business and governance practices are evolving
  • a set of tools to adopt an integrated approach to innovation management
