On the Move - l’ecosistema in movimento (the moving ecosystem) is the international tour that promotes relations between the Emilia Romagna Research and Innovation ecosystem and its talents abroad, providing networking events with stops in major European cities and outside Europe.

The initiative, promoted by the Emilia-Romagna Region and implemented by ART-ER, was created in 2019 with the aim of creating or intensifying relations between highly skilled talents from Emilia-Romagna who study or work abroad, and the regional system of research and innovation. The project, included in the Patto Giovani+, is also aimed at activating and increasing collaboration between places of excellence, where talents abroad work every day with the subjects of regional networks: universities, research facilities or companies. Examples include European, exchange, training or business projects, in which they mutually enhance innovation and research excellence.

Inaugurated in 2019, the On the Move tour will continue its journey and increase its network of young Emilia-Romagnans abroad, also thanks to the support of the Council of Emiliano-Romagnoli in the world and of the Italian network of representation abroad.
During the events, representatives of the Emilia-Romagna Region, of ART-ER and young graduate students, researchers, professionals and start-up companies from Emilia-Romagna living abroad will discuss the most profitable ways of relating between those who work in an international context and the actors of research and innovation in Emilia-Romagna, through the presentation of the initiatives of the Emilia-Romagna Region on Research & Innovation, high competences, and business creation.
