If goods, people and ideas are its contents, what nowadays contributes to make mobility a paradigm are the three fundamentals: space, time and speed.
Flows of goods and people in a context of zeroed distances have exponentially increased the possibilities of choice and, at the same time, made accessible material and immaterial products that were the preserve of few elites. This continuous sharing and availability has permitted the confrontation with other cultures; integration and inclusion have replaced conquest and exploitation.
Nowadays, when we talk about mobility we think of the possibility and right to move and find new professional and personal dimensions against the attempts to revitalize politics of protectionism and exclusion.
Mobility also affects the intellectual eco-system of undertakings, which more and more hardly retain knowledge and talents within their business walls and find themselves to face a turnover that is even transformed into opportunities to acquire and exchange new skills.
Moreover, one needs only think of the new role of logistics as direct consequence of new modes of transports of goods, which are more and more efficient and have lower and lower costs, as well as of the radical transformation in purchase processes of consumers, who are always in search of services enhancing the possibility of choice, minimizing delivery times and independently from physical presence and interaction.
Mobility also concerns ideas and their propagation speed, and consequently the impacts on the value chain of businesses, firstly on their ability to make innovation, no longer necessarily generating it inside but benefiting from networks made of universities, suppliers, public and private stakeholders, start-ups and incubators in a constant exchange that sees a dialogue between the inside and outside.
Finally, mobility is also the expression of another drastic change in paradigm: new generations are less and less interested in ownership, more and more in fruition.
