The vision for MIND is to capitalise on the success of Expo 2015 and place Milan on the map of the world’s gateway cities, leveraging on the local excellences in life sciences. The mission is to transform the site where the Expo was held (over 1 million m2) into a science, technology and innovation district of international relevance. This will ultimately enhance the quality of life locally and promote the country’s sustainable economic development and international growth, through an infrastructural platform which will enable scientific, economic and social innovation. Arexpo, the agency set up in 2011 to acquire the land for the Expo and develop it, has appointed Lendlease, international property and infrastructure group, for the post Expo process to assist in transforming the site into a world-leading science and technology centre. PlusValue is currently supporting Lendlease in turning this ambitious vision into a strategic and action plan for social impact.
