Research to support innovation

Innovation cannot exist without research, and without the broadening of knowledge

Non c'è innovazione senza ricerca

There can be no innovation without research because knowledge plays a key role in any development process.
That is why research is the cornerstone of all the activities that we conduct and that we offer to our clients.
This is industrial research, aimed at achieving applicable results, either directly or through a subsequent industrialization phase.

Scientific and technological

By participating in research and innovation projects, we increase our ground-breaking technical knowledge day by day and deepen our expertise in new areas, innovating and trialling new SBES (Simulation-based Engineering and Sciences) software, applications, and technologies.

We contribute to research initiatives by providing expertise in Multiphysics product and process simulation and manufacturing system simulation.

Our capabilities in data management and analysis, mathematical modelling, the data- and simulation-driven development of digital twins and decision-support systems (DSS) applied in diverse industrial domains and processes complement and add value to Multiphysics simulation results.

Methodological excellence
and exploitation

In working alongside excellent international consortia, we have accumulated considerable experience in monitoring calls for proposals, evaluating project ideas, and composing consortia, and we have built a robust network of expert contacts over the years.

We actively contribute to the writing phase of proposals, as well as to the coordination of approved projects.

We use an effective method, which has been well proven over the years, to commercially exploit project results.
