There are two macro-areas in the agreement: research activities (IMQ and the Milan Polytechnic will be partners in research projects on innovative products and technologies) and training activities (IMQ experts will train Polytechnic students on the issues of conformity assessment of products and processes). Many fields of application: bioengineering and medical devices, electromagnetic compatibility, connectivity, systems interoperability, 5G technology, IoT (Internet of Things), characterization of components and systems.
“The agreement with IMQ strengthens the collaboration between the Milan Polytechnic and companies,” commented Resta. “It is a demonstration of how universities focus on the evolution of the labour market and new research challenges.”
This agreement will make it possible to identify investments for a timely assessment of new technologies,” commented Antonella Scaglia. “We are proud to become partner of one of the most prestigious universities at an international level.”
