INNOVATION AND RESEARCH

research and innovation

Innovation is the adoption of new concepts, ideas, products or processes capable of improving or radically changing the products or services offered, with the goal of delivering benefits to the people who use them and increasing the competitiveness of the business on the world market.
Innovation also involves the use of materials with a reduced environmental impact (in terms of embodied energy and LCA), which are 100% recyclable (circular economy) and which in no way constitute a risk to the health and life of people, even in the event of extraordinary events such as earthquakes or fires.
Aliva’s guiding principles in its development and in the engineering of its products are:
SAFETY
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
TECHNOLOGICAL
DEVELOPMENT
SOCIAL AND
ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY
The goal of its research and innovation activities is to define new systems and technologies for the building envelope that have improved energy and mechanical performance and that involve the use of the most advanced materials and the most modern production technologies.
 

THE TEAM

The Aliva team includes the technical department, which is made up of a significant number of engineers and technicians with various types of academic backgrounds and professional experience. They have been recruited from a variety of industrial and technological sectors and, by integrating and interacting positively, create a unique pool of technical skills.

Within the technical department there is a team, currently consisting of a number of engineers, that specialises in Research and Innovation.

THE PARTNERS

For years, during the development and validation of its products, Aliva has made use of consultancy services and has worked with the most knowledgeable and reliable research institutes, laboratories and private companies in Italy and Europe.

These well-established partnerships have involved the Aliva team working alongside:
the National Research Council (CNR), in particular with the ISTEC (Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics) section, which focuses on working with advanced ceramic materials, with applications in sectors ranging from aerospace to construction
CertiMaC, a laboratory belonging to the High Technology Network of the Emilia-Romagna Region
The Giordano Institute, an internationally renowned certifying body
As part of these partnerships, Aliva has signed an agreement called Joint Lab with CNR-ISTEC and CertiMaC, for research and development activities and for the ongoing training of its technical staff on the premises of the two partners

Aliva is also involved in joint activities with leading universities, such as:

• The "Aldo Daccò" Corrosion and Metallurgy Study Centre, the centre of excellence at the University of Ferrara for studies on the behaviour of metallic materials

• the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Bologna, with whom Aliva has been carrying out research projects at home and in Europe

• the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano, where it regularly holds seminars and lessons on the subject of the building envelope and from which it receives students engaged in thesis projects
