DIH Information

The form of the DIH CREATE and the team

Consorzio C.R.E.A.T.E. (CREATE) is a no profit research organisation possessing a legal personality; it belongs, according to the Italian law, to the class of Consorzi, where several subjects give life
to an independent body intended to reach commonly agreed objectives. C.R.E.A.T.E. was founded on late 1992 by ABB-Ricerca and the University of Reggio Calabria with the aim of establishing a stable link between industry and university. Successively, the partnership was extended with Università di Napoli Federico II, Università di Cassino, Università della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, Università Parthenope, Università della Basilicata and Ansaldo-Energia.The financial resources come from the funds given by the partners at the constitution date and to the additional resources gained directly by the partners during their activity.

The scientific and technical aims are pursued by means of the coordinated effort of experts acting as consultants. In addition, the Consortium takes advantage of temporary staff for technical and secretarial support. For 15 years is active a collaboration with PRISMA Lab (Projects of Industrial and Service Robotics Mechatronics and Automation) . The PRISMA team is committed for 30 years to pursuing research in robotics and automation and is internationally recognized in the community for their achievements on industrial and service robotics.

Over the years, CREATE has gained vast experience from participation and coordination of twenty FP7 and H2020 European projects in the field or robotics and automation in general and in Inspection and Maintenance in particular.
