The evolution of the industrial mechanics industry is linked to the stakeholders’ need to constantly increase productivity, which means constantly improving the technologies applied. The search for increased sustainability, combined with the reduction of environmental impact, improved performances (e.g. productivity, accuracy in dimensions, finishes and form) and the development of the ability to self-adapt to new working conditions, are the main guidelines of H2020, the EU programme which provides a framework for applied research in the sector for the near future.
The Hi-SCORE project brings together two important laboratories (MUSP and ISTEC) and a number of companies operating in the sector. Hi-SCORE works to apply those guidelines in the machine tool sector, at the regional and national level.
