Pietro Rosa TBM Opens 16th Conference of the Italian Association of Industrial Technologies (AITeM) hosted by Padua University
September 9th, 2019

Pietro Rosa TBM was honoured to have been invited to open the 16th conference of AITeM (The Italian Association of Industrial Technologies) with the keynote speech titled “How Italian Universities can support SMEs growth, innovation and evolution”.
The Department of Industrial Engineering (DII) of Padua University invited Pietro Rosa TBM to open the discussion dealing with the topic of university-enterprise collaboration as a critical success factor for growth and strategic market positioning.

The collaboration between Universities (Padua University in particular) and Pietro Rosa TBM goes back over thirty years and has always been systemic to the group’s strategy based on capability acquisition, and is now a proven formula for the company to stay at the forefront of innovative manufacturing to support its Global customer base.

The numerous research and development projects carried out with European, national and regional funding contributions have been one of the key catalysts for the successful collaboration between the Universities and Pietro Rosa TBM over the years. In fact, Pietro Rosa TBM has participated in a number of major industrial research projects that lead to considerable amount of investments in hot forming, machining, and special processing technologies. These projects have certainly aided the successful transformation of our long-established forging company into a fully vertically integrated engineering and manufacturing service provider, capable of engineering and developing innovative manufacturing solutions by integrating diverse metalworking and finishing technologies. As we head toward the new decade, we see the need for even closer collaboration with Universities and Institutes as we believe this represents the building block of the future where academia and real world needs define the creative forces that push our industry forward.
