The Research & Development sector is considered a fundamental competitive factor by BV TECH. The Group collaborates for this activity with prestigious universities and research centers: it is a member of the Consorzio Milano Ricerche (http://www.milanoricerche.it/members/), is a founding member of the Polo di Innovazione per le Tecnologie della Salute (http://www.biotecnomed.it/profilo/) and a member of the Interdisciplinary Consortium for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (IC) 3 (https://ic3-2017.mit.edu/about-us/members) at MIT’s Sloan School of Management.
BV TECH invests more than 5% of its revenues every year in industrial research, experimental development and in the purchase of innovative technologies. It also participates in regional, national and community programs for the study and development of innovative technological platforms in the areas of eHealth, Security, Smart Cities and Government, Transport and Logistics.
Among the numerous and important projects in progress, we mention the most recently launched ones :
– ELVITEN (Electrified L-category Vehicles Integrated into Transport and Electricity Networks): launched in 2017 by TBridge for the study of the barriers that still exist to the adoption of electric vehicles (EL-Vs) in urban area movements and the test of solutions that can incentivize their use;
– ADIUVANT (ADvanced Ict cloUd based and Virtualized plAtform for INTegrated and personalized medicine): it was launched this year by BV TECH for the design and testing of a technological service platform for the management of chronic diseases with specific reference to strong social impact pathologies identified in cardiovascular, neurological and respiratory diseases;
– MATE (Multifunction Assistant for liTtle kids and the Elderly): started by Progesi for the implementation of a remotely controlled multipurpose wristband system thought to assist and to help vulnerable people (child, elderly or sick people) to face their everyday life tasks;
– NET4HEALTH (NETwork FOR HEALTH management): launched in 2017 by TBridge for the creation of an IT support platform for patients affected by chronic conditions typical of the elderly (heart failure) and of cancer patients. The project aims to speed up and increase the effectiveness of the therapeutic treatments performed during the dehospitalization phase, acting with digital technologies on the optimization of workflows and on the harmonization of activities involving the health and social welfare structures scattered throughout the territory.
