The idea arises from the need felt by companies, especially SMEs, to want to become "Enterprise 4.0", wanting to bring together in this definition companies that carry out research and development projects when they digitize the company to get to industria4.0 . (IMPRESA 4.0 = R & D + INDUSTIRA 4.0). All the companies involved in the project are making investments in plants and machinery suitable for industria 4.0 but they wish nevertheless to combine this effort with a project that sees companies engaged in research and development activities for new processes and / or new products, thanks to the skills of the research groups involved, which enhance industria 4.0 for the transition to impresa 4.0. Cross-cutting activity in the various sectors of the companies involved in the project is an added value and finds a common thread in the approach to industria 4.0, here in fact the knowledge of different sectors are poured into a common project.

The development of the project will allow each company to draw on knowledge typical of other sectors, useful for enhancing the Tuscan products in a globalized world, and to take advantage of university knowledge for the definition of a correct R&D activity in impresa 4.0 perspective on the basis of specific needs.

The companies will develop the identified projects and highlight the problems in periodic meetings aimed at evaluating the common difficulties as well as the exchange of information and skills necessary for the emergence of positive synergies between companies belonging to different sectors.

The project will therefore mainly focus on defining the activities to be implemented for the integration of investments for industria 4.0 with the R&D activities and their implementation in the contexts of the individual companies involved.

A fundamental aspect is therefore not only the collaboration between companies belonging to different sectors, but also the interrelationship between these and the Universities of Siena and Florence which, in addition to playing an important role in the definition of the strategy, help companies in the development of research and in predicting and monitoring expected results.
