WORKING PROTOTYPE
TECHNOLOGY SCOUTING
Technology Scouting is an important
working area within the Innovation Hub,
also designed as a catalyst for technology
diffusion within the group.
The scouts identify technology opportunities suitable for envisaged
challenges within the different business categories.

The team searches for upstream technologies to drive concept
formulation, as well as for on-the-edge technologies for solving
technical challenges already present in the concept-maturing phase.

Some of the main activities carried out by this department are
assessing and validating technical providers, evaluating IP frames,
building tech solver database networks, leveraging and exploiting
in-house experience, negotiating solutions, etc.
TECHNOLOGY SCOUTING NETWORK
The Technology Scouting team have a close,
continuous collaboration with major scientific
and technological research networks
at institutional and private-sector level.
We have long-term contracts with knowledge providers
and technology scouting services that guarantee regular updates
on state-of-the-art technology.

We keep up-to-date with the latest trends by participating in major
international tradeshows relevant to our business,
seeking emerging technical solutions from a variety of providers,
even from major corporations as well as smart fast-rising companies.

CO-CREATION SPACES
Our co-creation spaces are specially designed for encouraging creative thinking and collaborative working dynamics. Most of the Innovation Hub team members are skilled facilitators with broad experience in creative processes.

The spaces host a plethora of resources to spark creativity and foster participation throughout the whole process.
DESIGN STUDIO
The design studio is prepared to sketch new concepts in a short space of time and help the team visualize new ideas. When entering in the concept-maturing phase, the studio provides renders and videos that can be used for user testing and validation.

The designers not only work on product shapes but also on contexts of use and user scenarios to help the stakeholders to assess the market opportunity.
TECHNICAL CENTRE
The technical centre is equipped with a library of materials and components, allowing fast execution and quickly built working prototypes.The 3D models evolve constantly, going from the initial idea to more functional pieces, and support the presentation of new product proposals to our clients.

The technical centre uses proprietary testing labs (electrical, mechanics, electronics, material science and chemistry machinery) to back up the new concept with a preliminary proof-of-concept.
