Institute of industrial and automation technologies


ITIA-CNR continuously supports the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector by bringing innovation in the factory. The enabling technologies and tools developed by their Research Departments are used to realize physical pilot factories which represent valuable platforms to support industrial research and the transfer of research results to companies. One example is a pilot plant for the De–and Remanufacturing of automotive mechatronic components. Some others research fields in addition to demanufacturing are Industrial Products-Service System and Product-Service Systems across Life Cycle or the future of 3D-printing.
