IoTwins, one of the most important European Projects of Horizon 2020, gets underway. Bonfiglioli is the coordinator of this project involving Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things applied to manufacturing and infrastructure.

IoTwins is one of the most important European projects of Horizon 2020, the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. It is therefore one of the most important projects in terms of economic value, scientific expertise and relevance of the parties involved. A project whose scientific and research contents applied to production plants in the manufacturing sector will be managed in partnership by research institutions and companies in Emilia-Romagna.

It provides for a total investment of 20 million euros and can count on the scientific coordination of the University of Bologna, on the computing infrastructures of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics and Cineca and on the support of the Emilia-Romagna Region, through Art-ER, the regional company supporting innovation, attractiveness and internationalization of the territorial system, for the exploitation and dissemination of the project results at regional, national and European level.

In addition to local partners, including Marposs, the project will also include international leading companies and scientific institutions such as Siemens, the Supercomputing Centre in Barcelona and the Fraunhofer Institute in Munich.

It will be used to evaluate in a virtual reality the advantages and disadvantages of industrial processes that will be then applied to production in advance. The project will also include the possibility of using the tool for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Being the leader of this project - said Sonia Bonfiglioli - is a source of pride, but it also represents an assumption of responsibility. We have the opportunity to demonstrate, in the field, how much value the ability to work in a team of international companies in which the vision of digitization does not forget to be at the service of man and his environment. For us, the application that will improve the performance of our products for the exploitation of wind energy, underlines Bonfiglioli's attention to operating, researching and, more generally, pursuing growth that is not "an end in itself" or "under any conditions". For Bonfiglioli, social responsibility has always been an indisputable value and reference in every activity. The choice of this area of application therefore has a value of digital innovation as much as the contribution to a more sustainable environment".
