AMET has a strategic commitment into research and development aimed to realize innovative products and processes. This goal is pursued through a continuous collaboration with several Universities and industrial partners and the participation to collaborative initiatives such as Piemonte innovation clusters and Aerospace district.

It is also of the outmost importance the contribution of public grants, at different levels, i.e. regional, national and European.

In general the research topics into which AMET is more deeply involved include:

  • smart and green manufacturing;
  • new materials;
  • sustainable mobility;
  • smart building and smart cities;
  • advanced and integrated design and testing methodologies and tools;

To mention the main projects

Piemonte projects

  • Aerospace platform: STEPS – Systems and Technologies for Space Exploration – Read More >>
  • Automotive platform: PIE VERDE on sustainable urban logistics through electric and hybrid light commercial vehicles

AMET is also active in two Piemonte innovation clusters: MESAP and POLIGHT, within which it is working, for instance, on:

  • complex robotic testing cells;
  • smart building;
  • hydrogen technologies;
  • functional safety testing tools and more.
