AIPRESTO is one of the winners of the first call (cascade funding) of the H2020 project “AI REGIO” dedicate to Industry 5.0 and collaborative intelligence solutions based on artificial intelligence.

The project is developed by three partners: Intermek srl (project leader), Video Systems srl and LEF, as the Digital Innovation Hub Alto Adriatico.

Objective of the project

The goal of AIPRESTO is to develop an automatic visual inspection system applied on Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) machine tools.

This project will allow Intermek to discover the full potential of artificial intelligence by working together with an experienced provider of machine vision, artificial intelligence and robotics technologies – Video Systems – and testing new services in the laboratories of DIH Alto Adriatico – LEF.

The project will develop all the phases for developing a new visual inspection system, from the design of the model to prototype development, testing and field experimentation.

Role of LEF

LEF will make its laboratories available to Intermek and Video Systems, which will conduct the testing and experimentation. In addition, it is leading the communication and dissemination activities.

AI REGIO is funded by the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 (Grant Agreement No. 952003) and involves Comet clusters.

Duration: 8 months (01.06.2022- 31.01.2023)




LEF is a partner in the TechMOlogy project “New technologies and cross-border networks for mobility” funded by the Interreg V-A Italy-Slovenia Cooperation Program 2014-2020.

The project aims to strengthen the mobility supply chain in the cross-border region, with a focus on businesses that are failing to meet the digital challenge: micro and small firms and craft businesses. The key enabling technologies (KETs) of Industry 4.0, on the other hand, can bring about a strategic and organizational change useful to stimulate, even in these firms, the development of new products and services.

The goal of TechMOlogy is to close the gap between industry leaders and their suppliers, making the latter more robust, better organized and capable of positioning themselves as partners in innovation projects.

To achieve this goal, TechMOlogy deploys the following main activities:

    • 4 demonstration events, to present applications of 4.0 technologies in the automotive sector;
    • 3 events dedicated to craft businesses and professionals for service innovation with the design thinking approach;
    • industrial challenges, in which large companies operating in the mobility sectors stimulate the community of craft businesses, professionals and suppliers to identify answers to real problems through original applications of Industry 4.0 technologies, using the laboratories provided by the partners.


Role of LEF

LEF will be responsible for communicating the project outcomes and will organize events to disseminate the results achieved to the public and to involve all stakeholders in the activities – such as craft businesses, professionals, and trade associations.
