ADVANCED ROBOTICS AND ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES: SANT’ANNA SCHOOL TO PROMOTE PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP FOR ARTES 4.0 COMPETENCE CENTRE
ARTES 4.0 stands for Advanced Robotics and enabling digital Technologies & Systems 4.0. This acronym describes a Competence Centre to promote and accelerate innovation through public-private partnerships combining technological expertise, research programs, technology transfer and education on advanced robotics and associated enabling technologies.
By bringing together novel IT and robotics technologies, the project for one of the highest level tech hub in Italy developed by Sant’Anna School and over two hundred partners (universities, research centers, public institutions, private organizations and companies) is expected to be completed shortly, in accordance with the National Industry 4.0 Plan.
“This result is extremely important because companies demonstrate a great interest in the technology transfer process for a further development and commercialization of new technologies”, said Paolo Dario, professor at Sant’Anna School Institute of BioRobotics and the Artes 4.0 project coordinator.
The overall objective of ARTES 4.0 public-private partnership, which adopted an inclusive but selective approach, is to bring technology out to the marketplace for further research and to benefit all potential partners including: Scuola Normale Superiore, Università di Pisa, Università di Firenze, Università di Siena, Scuola IMT Alti Studi di Lucca, LENS (European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy), Università Politecnica delle Marche, Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma, Università di Sassari, Università degli Studi di Perugia, the National Research Council CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche), IIT (Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia), INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare) and INAF (Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica).
“ARTES 4.0 has the potential to fill the gap between research, digital economy and corporates – also said Dario – We are trying to interconnect market leading companies and advanced research institutions to fully exploit the benefits of industrial automation solutions and become more competitive on a global scale”.
