New projects at Saperi&Co, the research and services facility of Sapienza University that promotes excellence
New projects developed within Saperi &Co, Sapienza's research facility dedicated to creating innovative proposals, encouraging the transition of research products to the market and society, supporting relationships and opportunities for dialogue between academia and the business world, are ready to start.
"The Center is constantly expanding - says Sabrina Lucibello, professor of Industrial Design and director of the Centre since the beginning - we are creating the showcase of research products, that is, a dynamic exhibition space where we can convey the excellence of Sapienza and we have also recently enhanced the Fab Lab, with a bioprint to 3D print bio, food and even living materials, and with a 3D printer for ceramics, porcelain and clay. We are also implementing the training area with specific programmes dedicated to young researchers and professionals to facilitate the transition of ideas and talents to companies, through the Open Innovation methodology".
"Among the other innovations of the Centre, a Virtual Room to disseminate research created in collaboration with the Department of Psychology, a space in which you can make "immersive" movies for dissemination purposes to deliver the many research results that our University produces to the general public - explains Alessandra Talamo, Coordinator of the Scientific Technical Committee - These technologies allow us the create MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) to enhance the dissemination of scientific research through training modules aimed at companies and public and private entities, even on an international scale."
Imagined according to a Hub model, Saperi&Co connects 18 departments and 180 researchers and professors who find in the heart of the university city a central node with many facilities: a fablab, a mechanical workshop, a coworking, four labs on demand, a training room, a material library, a virtual room, an exhibition showcase.
