Section 01: Opening Ceremony

On the morning of July 14, the opening ceremony of the 2023 CI-LAM (China-Italia Laboratory on Advanced Manufacturing) Summer School was successfully held at the University of Bergamo. This summer school is jointly organized by Tsinghua University, the University of Bergamo, and the University of Naples Federico II. The event was attended by university leaders, professors, local industry cluster representatives, as well as dignitaries from the Chinese Consulate General in Milan. This year, a total of 13 Chinese graduate and doctoral students were dispatched to the summer school, including 10 from the Department of Electrical Engineering, and 1 each from the Departments of Precision Instruments, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and the Department of Medicine.

At 10 AM, the opening ceremony officially commenced, with Professor Gianluca Urso from the University of Bergamo, one of the coordinators of the CI-LAM project, delivering the welcoming speech. He noted that this marks the fifth edition of the CI-LAM Summer School. Except for the first edition held offline in 2019, the subsequent three editions from 2020 to 2022 were conducted online. Therefore, being able to meet in Italy after three years filled him with great joy, and he warmly welcomed everyone to Bergamo.

Professor Gianluca Urso emphasized that the CI-LAM project is the unique high-level collaboration platform between China and Italy in the field of advanced manufacturing, established in 2017. Its aim is to facilitate and strengthen exchanges and cooperation in advanced manufacturing and cutting-edge research and development. CI-LAM brings together resources from enterprises, universities, and research institutions, engaging in collaborative research activities, fostering application and product innovation, and supporting practitioners in both countries, especially SMEs and emerging businesses, to adopt new industrial standards and technologies.
