“Inproves is a very high-profile innovation,” stresses Fabrizio Sala, Lombardy Region’s councillor for Education, Research, Innovation, Universities and Simplification, “built thanks to the synergy between two large companies, five SMEs and two Lombardy universities. A winning strategy that brings jobs, values the area and drives the transition to the mobility of the future.”

Participating alongside Brembo, the lead partner in the project , which ended on Jan. 31, 2021, after 42 months of intensive work, were Marelli, the Lombard universities Politecnico di Milano and Università degli studi di Bergamo , and SMEs MD Quadro, e-Novia, Peri, Mako-Shark and UTP Vision.
