Turin, Italy – On Monday, September 23rd, ITT signed an agreement with the University of Turin and the 2i3T incubator with the aim to create Joint Lab, a joint research laboratory dedicated to the study of tribology for braking systems in the automotive industry.

The agreement has been signed by MT Chief Innovation Officer Luca Martinotto, the Rector of UniTo, Gianmaria Ajani and the Vice-Rector for Scientific Research and President of the 2i3T Incubator, Silvio Aime. This establishes a strategic collaboration between the two organizations that in the past have already initiated projects funded by the Piedmont Region such as doctoral programs, post-masters apprenticeship, as well as a collaboration agreement signed a year ago with a precise roadmap.

The research activities will be led and organized by a pool of scientists, involving both ITT (Agusti Sin, Process Innovation Director) and the departments of Chemistry (Valter Maurino) and Physics (Ettore Vittone), with the specific focus to combine and develop strategic areas such as Innovative Materials Development, Surfaces Science and Technology, and Artificial Intelligence.
