The CRIT’s Network of Endorsed Suppliers (NFA – Network Fornitori Accreditati) was created to respond to shareholder companies’ will to share their excellence suppliers.
Suppliers are endorsed on the basis of their high level of specialization (i.e. design, processing, engineering performances, et c.) or of the “high tech” content of their work (advanced sensors, innovative materials, etc.).
During the years, the NFA expanded in a full-fledged Network of Enterprises with the aim of fostering synergies among member companies and of implementing innovative activities and projects.
Enterprises adhering to the NFA have access to four different types of services:
- Technology activities, aiming at making Suppliers aware of technology trends and scenarios of major interest for CRIT shareholders and at expanding their knowledge on specific technology areas, also by participating in collaborative initiatives and events
- Collaborative activities, aiming at favouring dialogue and the exchange of experiences among companies, in order to initiate common actions and projects.
- Matching activities, aiming at analysing specific technical competences characterising Suppliers and at exploring their availability to collaborate with other members of the CRIT Network.
- R&D Fund Raising Activities, aiming at creating awareness on Regional, National and European R&D funding initiatives and at enabling Suppliers to access relevant opportunities.
