In this first panel, Prof. Paolo Tartarini, Full Professor at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and Prof. Marco Formentini, Associate of Management Engineering at the University of Trento, will discuss their respective areas of research related to the impact of digital and sustainability on the development of the manufacturing industry. On the occasion, Prof. Tartarini will present the degree program of the new Carpi campus in Sustainable Industrial Engineering, created to meet a need increasingly felt in the area and beyond.

Second panel with the point of view of experienced twin transition innovation professionals on issues of balance sheet sustainability, production processes and digital innovation; the aim is to propose an integrated approach, necessary for companies facing this path. Speakers will include Beatrice Scappini, iPLUS Sustainability Advisor, Alessandro Villa, Operations Advisor, and Daniele De Cia, Partner and President of NiEW.

The twin transition represents an extraordinary evolution opportunity for the world of Color in industrial manufacturing companies, particularly packaging, fashion, and ceramics. Fabio Santoro, Project Manager at Rekordata, with extensive experience in this area, will illustrate challenges and opportunities in an industry that must necessarily innovate processes and operations

Matteo Masi, Industry Leader, Industrial & Manufacturing Segment at AWS, will explain how the Cloud can be an enabler to accelerate the twin transition, especially in manufacturing. The cloud not only as a technology but especially as a new model to innovate, allowing access to modern solutions to all players in the industrial market, regardless of size. Some direct experiences with Italian customers will also be illustrated

In the manufacturing sector, digitalization acts as a key enabler of sustainability. The innovation path to follow is progressive and involves very clear steps. This is what emerges from the results of a research conducted by NiEW on the evolution of the machinery sector. Andrea Violante, CEO of NiEW, will talk about it.
