Long-term investments (LTIs) are public or private investments, in strategic assets for society and the economy, such as infrastructure, research, the ecological transition, healthcare, and education. LTIs are crucial for the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and, given their complexity and magnitude, cannot be pursued without new and innovative forms of public-private collaborations.


Public authorities must be ambitious and equipped with new capabilities to leverage the abundant financial resources available, harnessing the extraordinary focus of the market to generate public value through sustainable investments and strategies. Public-private co-evolution and a strategic and operational alignment are essential ingredients for the realization of LTIs.

INVESTinIT Lab offers a space for discussion and in-depth analyses to stimulate public-private co-evolution and create mutual trust based on shared knowledge, strategies, and solutions. Our objective is to enable public and private actors to combine capital and resources, both tangible and intangible, to foster LTIs and to reshape the future of our societies.

Though the main focus of INVESTinIT Lab is Italy, some of our research outputs and materials are also relevant of an international audience.
