On Friday 18 September 2020 we had the pleasure of celebrating the beginning of two important journeys that bring the world of research closer to the needs of the Territory and put the University a growing relationship with the productive realities that animate the Verona area.
The common goal of the ICE Lab and the ODINO Project is to create value, skills, and employment through a process of technology transfer for young people approaching the market and those workers who need a new qualification or learning new skills.
ICE – Industrial Computer Engineering Lab Verona
The inauguration of the ICE Laboratory – Industrial Computer Engineering Lab, of the Department of Computer Science – University of Verona – is born in the context of the Excellence Project “Industria per l’Informatica 4.0” won by the Computer Science Department. Located in the suggestive industria archaeological area of the “Magazzini Generali”, ICE Laboratory is easily reachable and well connected to the city center.
For us, at ALTAIR it was an opportunity to present to companies our latest research in the field of robotics and create new connections and networks for future collaborations.

ODINO – Officine d’Innovazione
The inauguration of the Officina ODINO Soave is the first step of the ODINO – Officine D’Innovazione Project [Innovation Workshops] which offers free training excellence courses for young people aged 16 to 30 in the Verona area.
The project was possible thanks to the Cariverona Foundation and consists of the creation of two different Innovation workshops specialized in the sectors of viticulture (Soave) and manufacturing industry 4.0 (Verona).
The Officina ODINO Verona is preparing to open in January 2021, and will be located at the General Ex-Market, next to the ICE Laboratory, and will offer basic and specialized training in Industry 4.0 and robotics, in collaboration with manufacturing companies of the area.
