Our Research & Projects division is one of the strengths of Bartucci S.p.A., which has entered into partnerships with the Milan Polytechnic University, Rome’s La Sapienza University and the Universities of Padua, Verona and Marche, for the purpose of developing industrial efficiency projects.
Each new project is based on operational research and is validated by means of market analyses and simulations, which are completed thanks to the support of the other company divisions during the pilot cases. This interactive process ensures the continuous in-progress improvement of the work carried out and an attentive approach to concreteness and market feedback.
