Human resources and training

Training and innovation

There is a need to create a multidisciplinary organisation which encapsulates the concept of training and innovation. We need to address the increasing shortage of vocational training courses, which translates into a problem of competitiveness and survival for an industrial district that has built its international leadership on the excellence of its technical know-how. We need to coordinate the supply of training and industrial culture, two essential factors to create innovation and secure our future. We need to create a symbiosis between training and enterprises, to enable businesses to find workforce who is both familiar with the region's traditions and most importantly, have a clear vision of the future

Businesses, universities and research centres should join forces on common issues. 

Customer service

We need to follow the direction taken by large multinationals, which concentratie on customer service and leave product development to clusters of supplier companies with the capacity to develop product sub-systems. In a specialised industrial district this means having the capacity to offer something new, instead of working “in response” to the demands of large customers.
The EU, therefore, should commit to financing projects aiming to promote training, starting from the identity and potential of industrial districts.

Competitive success

E.R.-AMIAT intends to develop relations with training centres in order to preserve the human capital of the district, by means of international EU-funded mobility projects for technicians and researchers, and ESF-funded grants to develop creativity and problem-solving skills. This ties in with the ability to provide a rapid response to the market, thanks to efficient ways of circulating information, carrying out business transactions and dealing with logistics.

In order to maintain and strengthen the success of the advanced mechanics industry, the region should have the opportunity to hold its own in the new competitive environment, by promoting the technical potential which would otherwise be lost.

The process of innovating and applying new technologies has always been essential for competitive growth. The industries of Emilia-Romagna are evidence of this. Typically medium-sized, they have been tenacious in supporting and promoting technical knowledge in the field of mechanics, automation, electronics and mechatronics.

New scientific approaches

These companies know that only the ability to develop new scientific and methodological approaches to production techniques will allow them to maintain a position of supremacy in their markets, and to act as leaders in innovation. There is a need to promote long-term knowledge in the industrial reality of Emilia-Romagna by underlining the region's characteristics of innovation, creativity, flexibility and a high level of industrial specialisation.
