SACMI now a partner of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Since 1st March 2019 SACMI has been a member of the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Industrial Liaison Program. Signed by Paolo Mongardi, President of SACMI Imola, and Karl F. Koster, executive director of MIT corporate relations, this agreement reinforces SACMI's research role even further.

Thanks to this membership, in fact, the Imola-based company will have access to a whole series of MIT programmes and services concerning applied research in a number of relevant industries. Guided by MIT-designated Program Director, Kenneth Goldman, SACMI will be able to state its needs and areas of interest as regards emerging technologies and collate/compare information with internationally distinguished scientists working at MIT's various faculties and schools.

Membership will also allow the company’s personnel to take part in an ongoing programme of conferences and workshops. Moreover, an annual meeting will be held at MIT to focus on strategic planning. To follow, a MIT delegation headed by the Program Director and faculty members interested in developing joint projects will visit the company.

Lastly, the company will be able to involve MIT personnel not just in overseas research programmes but also in more finely targeted projects via a period of work at SACMI. Analogously, permanent training of team members can be enhanced by accessing the various Continuous Learning programmes proposed by MIT.
