At Cefriel, research drives the acquisition and development of solid skills to create innovative solutions for all projects
Based on the market’s needs and with a multidisciplinary approach, Cefriel combines the output of its research with the innovation projects that are taking shape at companies.
This fusion of research and innovation enables a seamless transition from intent to impact.
We conduct research and development in four main areas
We do applied research
We carry out applied research projects directly, then share the results as part of our partnerships with companies and universities
We support experimental research
Partnering with companies in their R&D, we help create pre-prototypes that require specialist skills
We support basic research
We work with universities on projects that are more focused on the application of basic research output
We participate in co-funded projects
In partnership with leading academic institutions and industrial players, we participate in national and international co-funded projects
Innovation, efficiency, sustainability
Creating a future of innovative, efficient, and sustainable mobility demands specific initiatives, including designing and implementing new public transport solutions.
There are several challenges to be met: defining tools and rules for mobility data digitization and sharing; implementing MaaS (Mobility as a Service) solutions to support seamless and multi-modal mobility; devising multi-modal alternatives to the use of private cars, encouraging public transport, active travel, and shared mobility.
Strategy, sustainability, the human element
Maintaining corporate security is increasingly complex, due to the mix of technologies, rapidly evolving cyber risks, the skills required, and operating costs.
The greatest challenge of this research is to protect data and the business mission, harnessing sustainable and advanced technologies and skills that are available on the market or developed internally. Cefriel aims for sustainability, i.e. building a defense strategy that is tailored to the company.
Central to this is the human element, both a source of cyber threat and a resource for defense (human in the loop).
Connected supply chains, ecosystems, optimization
The creation of smart, interconnected, and sustainable factories is based on the design and implementation of smart and interconnected machinery, the design of solutions to support people’s decisions and pool their knowledge, and the creation of efficient, interconnected supply chains that can share data.
Through its research, Cefriel works to devise digital solutions that support data governance in developing, tracking, structuring, and sharing the knowledge of each individual, making it one of the company’s greatest assets. Cefriel works alongside companies to create connected supply chains, building digital ecosystems that allow data to be exchanged securely according to the IDSA standard.
