Industrial innovation, Unimore researcher the only Italian at the G20 table

(March 15, 2017) The University of Modena and Reggio Emilia is the only Italian university invited to attend the G20 work table on Digitalizazion Manufacturing at a conference organized by the German Ministry of Economics in Berlin on March 16 and 17. Her name is Margherita Peruzzini and she is part of the research group of prof. Marcello Pellicciari of the Department of Engineering "Enzo Ferrari" of Unimore: she will attend the G20 table on "Digitalizing Manufacturing: Support for SMEs" organized by the German "Competence Center Industrie 4.0", as part of the event to be held in Berlin entitled "Digitising Manufacturing in the G20 - Initiatives, Best Practices and Policy Approaches", organized by the German Ministry of Economics. The meeting will discuss the challenges and opportunities for companies to understand how to use engineering methods and tools to bring SMEs to the digitization process. "As part of the fourth industrial revolution, which main objective is to rethink factories through the use of digital tools, the various countries of the world - says Eng. Margherita Perruzzini, Unimore researcher - are grappling to understand how to help companies meet this new challenge called Industry 4.0. " The Unimore research team is known for the excellence achieved internationally in applied research on Industry 4.0 issues, particularly in the engineering methods for smart factory, in advanced simulation of production processes ( "Digital Manufacturing"), and in human-centered design, and participates in numerous initiatives and working groups.

"The manufacturing industry - said prof. Marcello Pellicciari of Unimore - is indeed heading for the deployment of advanced digital technologies to design production environments that are dynamic and capable of developing continuous innovation in process and product, thanks to their virtualization and simulation of manufacturing processes for a fast, effective optimization even before creation. However, the way ahead to achieve this revolution is only partially traced and there is still much work to do. " The results of the workshop will be included in a G20 official document and it will be the basis of a trilateral cooperation pact between Germany, Italy and France on Industry 4.0 themes for the next years. "The participation of Unimore - said prof. Marcello Pellicciari - further confirms the level of excellence of our university in Industry 4.0 and its chance to become a leading player on the European and international scene."
