Research and Technology Transfer

The ever-increasing advances in computing and computational power have brought the discipline of Simulation-based Engineering and Sciences (SBES) to the threshold of a new era. What seemed impossible only a few years ago is now feasible and the research community in this vast discipline is far from finished, there is so much more that is still to be done.

This is a very exciting time for engineers and scientists involved in SBES research. Just think of the challenge of engaging in multi scale-modeling where the conventional methods cannot treat physical phenomena operating across large ranges of time or spatial scales. We need to rethink the ways we conceive SBES methodologies, a challenge that transcends the capabilities of any single scientist or engineer.
This is why EnginSoft plays a leading role in many consortiums; we understand that as a community of scientists, we can achieve so much more than as individuals.

Since 2003, EnginSoft has participated actively in a range of research projects including many European Commission (EC) projects, Clean-sky, FCH-JU, European Space Agency (ESA), National and Regional projects.

We have worked alongside excellent international consortiums, offering our technical and scientific support as well as our project management expertise, and we have contributed to creation of consortiums through our network of contacts.

EnginSoft’s firm belief in the importance of research has enabled us to maintain our leadership position in the different technological sectors in which we specialize. Through our participation in research projects, we realize our objectives of increasing our pioneering technical knowledge, and deepening our existing experience while gaining access to new industries and simultaneously innovating and testing new instruments, software, applications and technologies in SBES.

EnginSoft also actively participates in numerous European research organizations, including the European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA), the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC), the European Platform for High-Performance Computing (ETP4HPC), and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)’s Raw Materials consortium.

The company is a founding members of the Apulian Aerospace Technological District (Distretto Tecnologico Aerospaziale, DTA), a member of the District for Rail Technologies, High Speed trains, Safety & Security (Distretto per le Tecnologie Ferroviarie, l’Alta Velocità e la Sicurezza delle Reti, DITECFER) in Italy, and a member of the National Agency for the Promotion of European Research (Agenzia per la Promozione della Ricerca Europea, APRE) which allows us to keep up to date with the numerous research developments in Europe. In addition, we are proud to be one of a handful of investor-participants in three of the eight Italian national Competence Centers (CC), specifically CC MADE (led by the Polytechnic of Milan), CC SMACT (led by the University of Padua), and CC Industria 4.0 (led by University of Naples “Federico II” and the Polytechnic of Bari).

 

THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF RESEARCH

Projects’ insights

Innovation without research is impossible because knowledge plays a leading role in any development process: which is why research is at the heart of EnginSoft’s business and its service offering to corporate customers.
