The China-Italy Laboratory on Advanced Manufacturing (CI-LAM) is the bilateral platform on advanced manufacturing launched in 2017 and promoted by Italy’s Ministry of Education, Universities and Research and the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China.

It is promoted by the University of Naples Federico II, the University of Bergamo on the Italian side and by Tsinghua University, the China Sci-Tech Automation Alliance, the university incubator TusPark and the Hangxing China-Italy Innovation Incubator on the Chinese side.

Thanks to the activities carried out over the years, CI-LAM was recognized as a bilateral platform on the themes of advanced manufacturing and smart factory in the “Italy-China Scientific and Technological Cooperation, Action Plan towards 2025” drafted by Italy’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The scientific and educational cooperation program includes various activities such as the creation of joint laboratories, exchanges of students and researchers, innovation projects, matchmaking activities between academic research groups and university spinoffs, as well as advanced training.

CILAM has organized three editions of its Summer School, which has involved numerous students, researchers and teachers from the two countries, leading numerous Italian and Chinese universities to join the initiative.

 

The CILAM Summer School

  • 2021 Edition

The 2021 edition of the CILAM Summer School involved 59 students from 24 different universities in Italy, China, Norway and the United States. More than 24 hours of lessons were organized in 8 different online meetings from 13 July to 6 August.

The courses were divided into 8 subjects taught by 8 professors from the best universities in Italy and China. The themes were: New Material for 3D Printing: Prototyping and Production, Digital Twin and its Industrial Applications, Energy Management for Energy Internet, IOT for 4.0 Industrial Revolutions, Smart Robotics, Open and Distributed Automation System, Novel Power Semiconductor Devices, Equipment and DC Grids, Machine Learning in Advanced Manufacturing.

Each lesson included a discussion session between 26 Italian and Chinese Research Groups on the topics mentioned above, which is an opportunity to strengthen bilateral cooperation between Italy and China.

  • 2020 edition

The second edition of the CILAM Summer School was inaugurated in the presence of the former Italian Minister of University and Research, Prof. Gaetano Manfredi.

Between June and August, various training, matchmaking and joint research activities dedicated to students, entrepreneurs and researchers of the two countries were carried out with a particular focus on Industry 4.0.

The Summer School involved 69 students from 19 Italian and Chinese universities around the following topics: Advanced Manufacturing Systems, Energy, Predictive Maintenance, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data, Robotics, Cybersecurity, DC Grid System and 5G. A series of 8 seminars and round tables was also held on the role of innovation in the field of advanced manufacturing and saw the participation of 35 startups and SMEs from the two countries.

  • Edition 2019

In 2019 the first edition of the CILAM Summer School was organized and involved 22 young Italian and Chinese talents participated. The goal of the program was to allow participants to connect with the scientific and industrial environment and work on projects for the Joint Laboratory.

The two intensive weeks of the Summer School were divided into over 100 hours of training, laboratory activities and seminars on technology transfer and intellectual property rights. The learning modules covered topics such as: Robotics and industrial automation, Digital system for industry, Web technologies for industrial applications, PLC programming for industrial automation, and Design of mechatronic systems.

 

Study Visit in Naples and Bergamo

In July 2018, 6 Chinese students from Tsinghua University (Department of Electrical Engineering) participated in a two-week program in Italy, which included visits to university campuses, visits to companies and thematic workshops in Naples and Bergamo.
