Promoting innovation through Italian motorsport excellence
Innovation is at the heart of business success in the modern globalised knowledge economy. Italian firms are renowned for their innovative capability, particularly the innovatory capability of the small and medium size firms (SMEs) that make up the backbone of the Italian economy.
Within the global motorsport industry, Italy is well known as being one of the global centres for the industry, with names such as Ferrari and Ducati being just two of the global players within motorsport that are based in Italy.
At the same time, Italian SMEs working within the motorsport industry are also world class in the quality of their product and their innovatory capacity. RPM has been formed to promote these Italian SMEs capabilities both within Italy and outwards to the world in the field of motorsport as well as in many others technologically advanced fields.

"RPM - Rete Professionisti Motorsport, è una rete di imprese soggetto fondata nel Marzo 2019 a Modena. Lo scopo della rete è quello di sviluppare e promuovere a livello internazionale l’eccellenza italiana nel performance engineering di Piccole e Medie Imprese italiane operanti nell’industria del motorsport. L’eccellenza di queste aziende è caratterizzata dalla capacità innata di innovare e accelerare processi di innovazione facendo leva su contenuti di ricerca tecnologica, del saper fare e di gestione delle persone; il tutto costantemente messo alla prova dalle sfide competitive provenienti dai campi di gara. Queste sfide generano nel mix tecnologia e persone la capacità di sviluppare soluzioni utili anche in altri settori fra cui automotive, aviazione, aerospaziale, difesa, tecnologie biomedicali e realtà virtuale. Varie aziende che fanno parte di RPM (al momento 18 dal nord al sud dell’Italia) operano in alcuni di questi settori e RPM è stata fondata anche per stimolare e valorizzare questa capacità di innovare e generare trasferimento tecnologico. La rete si è già resa protagonista di varie iniziative in tal senso e stimola in modo attivo e metodico la crescita delle aziende che ne fanno parte."
