PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 13 of Regulation EU 679/2016

Purpose of the initiative

On 1 March 2018, the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia-Giulia, in accordance with Regional Law 45/2017, entered into an agreement with the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), the Ministry of Economic Development and Area Science Park – a National Public Research Body supervised by the MIUR – for the creation of “ARGO”.

ARGO is a complex industrial system, whose coordination activities are entrusted to Area Science Park, based on process and product innovation to increase the competitiveness of the region. Its implementation rests on the development of four integrated lines of action as part of four assets.

Industry Platform 4 FVG (IP4FVG) is one of the strategic assets of ARGO, which brings together twenty-five regional partners engaging in the field of innovation, with the aim of supporting the digital transformation of businesses in the region.

IP4FVG is a tool ensuring that FVG businesses, notably SMEs, have access to services and tools for guidance on the topic of digitalisation, while fostering collaborations between regional entities with a view to launching pilot projects to promote digital transformation.

The initiative is structured around four regional hubs (consisting of Temporary Special-Purpose Vehicles – each having a lead partner), linked to as many Industry 4.0 enabling technologies, and a Steering Committee that governs the entire process.

The areas of specialisation related to the Industry 4.0 enabling technologies of each hub include:

  • Big data Integration & Analysis for the Udine Hub - lead partner: Confindustria Udine
  • Advanced Manufacturing Solutions for the Pordenone Hub - lead partner: Lean Experience Factory
  • Internet of Things for the Tolmezzo Hub - lead partner: Carnia Industrial Park
  • Data Optimization & Simulation for the Trieste Hub - lead partner: Area Science Park

Pursuant to Article 28 of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation EU 2016/679), in their capacity as data processors all members of the partnership under the agreements reached between the parties are authorised to process – on behalf of Area Science Park, i.e. the party implementing the complex projects by express provision of Regional Law 45/2017 and, as such, acting as data controller – the personal data necessary for the implementation of the IP4FVG initiative.
