Area for REsearch and Innovative Applications
The ARENA (Area for REsearch & iNnovative Applications) application center of Fraunhofer Italia is a unique and shared platform between the world of applied science and local companies for the research of common innovative themes in the field of digitization and production. Fraunhofer Italia ARENA aims to demonstrate with application modules of high relevance for companies the research results that the institute achieves through the work of its researchers. The contents of ARENA cover the following topics:
- Digital engineering and planning: Information technology and digital support in the planning phase of processes and systems will play a decisive role in the future. The aim is to establish, network and execute strategic and operational processes in a more efficient and targeted manner through appropriate methodological and IT support.
- Process and production engineering: The aim is to explore in concrete terms how industrial processes will look and which technologies will be used in the near future. The application centre provides realistic scenarios, based on application modules combining concepts of artificial intelligence and advanced automation, for tomorrow's production systems.
