The founder and CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, has been named Time’s “2021 Person of the Year”, featured in the famous magazine’s front cover
IIT’s Scientific Director Giorgio Metta comments the event:
“With his ideas and his vision, Elon Musk represents the person of the future. While our planet is facing a difficult phase for its own life and traditional energy sources are decreasing, together with a documented ecosystem’s destruction, Musk gives us the opportunity to feel confident about possible solutions, thanks to the study and application of alternative energy sources, obtained through a tireless research activity.
Elon Musk, to whom my compliments go together with those from IIT staff, represents with his work one of the best examples of technology transfer that we can imitate.”.
