Agreement between Politecnico Bari and Bosch: Met, the laboratory for sustainable mobility is now open
“Met” (More electric transportation), the research laboratory for sustainable mobility is now open. This is the result of the agreement signed on 14 June between the Polytechnic University of Bari and Centro studi componenti per veicoli Spa (Cvit), a company of the Bosch Group, which will start and manage the research laboratory together.
The ten-year agreement was signed by University Rector, Eugenio Di Sciascio and company CEO, Antonio Arvizzigno, at the former factory of Scianatico, owned by the Polytechnic University, which has been recently turned into a science and technology centre in collaboration with the companies and which is currently increasingly growing.
The new facility, called “Met”, will involve about twenty researchers, from the Bosch Group and the Bari Polytechnic, based on the successful previous implementation of mixed (public and private) laboratories, by the University.
The agreement includes the funding of jobs for researchers, PhD students and post-doc researchers for shared projects and collaborations in teaching, with technicians from Bosch being involved in frontal lessons, seminars and professional training for future engineers, and university professors carrying out educational and updating activities for the employees of the multinational company. Academic and company researchers will work side to side at Met, on topics ranging from automation to information technology, from electrical systems to powertrain.
The Bari Polytechnics ha confirmed, with Bosch again, the second edition of the Automotive Summer School, based on the international model of thematic summer schools, which will be held in September at Palazzo Sagges, in Bari Vecchia.
