    +vat
    Smart Working is a topic of interest not just in Italy, but internationally. Looking beyond Italian borders, we see that the concept is present, albeit with different names, characteristics and levels of maturity in many European countries. Indeed, the European Parliament “supports smart working” (Resolution of 13 September 2016, General Principle no. 48). The most pioneering countries in Europe in the field of Smart Working include Great Britain, the Netherlands and Belgium, with examples of Smart Working initiatives in both the private and public sectors.
