 Italian productive development is far to take place as a diffused and concrete practice and this is not only due to the low investments in this direction, but also caused by a cognitive deficit about what is innovation and how has it to be done. Most generally is thought that innovation needs basically financial operativeness, while on the contrary analysis in progress detach for economy the crucial contributions of training. This last, in fact, is the most able to generate relevant changes concerning production and transfer of knowledge and innovation. The present essay investigates the apport of training, in the modality of lifelong learning, and its strength to imply new orientations in productive contexts or changing them on a socio-economic level and on a sphere of structural shapes.
