The LIFT Lab, directed by Anna Gatti, Associate Professor of Practice in Strategy and Entrepreneurship with extensive experience at the World Health Organization and Big Tech Corporations in Silicon Valley, aims to be the Think-Tank at the cutting edge of convergence between life sciences and digital technologies, and its impact on business and society. The Think-Tank merges the ideas and insights generated by the LIFT Lab and the academic excellence of SDA Bocconi, in collaboration with MIT, with the contributions of a broad and multidisciplinary community of professionals, practitioners and researchers.
The goal of the LIFT Lab is to bring together diversified perspectives, experiences and backgrounds consistently assessing the business implications of technologies and the value generation they can enable.
SDA Bocconi’s skills and competencies make it the best fit to become the first “non technological” School to address coherently and rigorously convergence between digital Technologies and Life Sciences, and its business impact across industries.
The importance of assessing technologies’ readiness for scaling and adoption is paramount to guide not only investments, but also organizational change and regulations.
On top of a multidisciplinary faculty covering business from all perspectives, the LIFT Lab can rely on the cooperation with two, well established SDA Bocconi competence centers (CERGAS, Center for Research on Health and Social Care Management and DEVO Lab) and a partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - M.I.T, one of the top research centers in the field of technologies for life sciences.
The LIFT Lab acts as a Think Tank to steer the different streams of activities and generate research proposals:
LIFT Lab Radar
To help executives and boards in assessing the short and medium term impact of key life sciences technologies on their industry and enterprise.
In-depth research initiative selected within a research catalogue comprising the most impactful tech trends.
Vertical drill-down research on specific technologies or cross-domain initiatives funded by one or a set of committed Founding Members.
Life sciences and digital Convergence will disrupt industries, business models and many of our user habits, revealing new opportunities for growth.
LIFT Lab stakeholders are:
LIFT Lab leverages a partnership with M.I.T. to discover emerging solutions and to bring a frontier tech perspective to all its research streams.
