Sino-Italian key technological studies in digital collaborative design

CIDIC empirical research

Network design and its research on collaborative design platform

Platform of key technological studies in digital collaborative design

Appreciate key technological studies in digital collaborative design.

Project background

Nowadays, a closed service platform without interactive communication for professional designers as well as without a technical supports is true on technological studies in digital collaborative design in the design field not only in China but also all over the world although a single technical problem is developed increasingly and key technological studies in digital collaborative design are staring in the integrated manufacturing field. Worse, problems, such as bottlenecks of communication in cross-border cooperation and transnational language communication, reliability of information on the internet and how to protect designers’ intellectual property, are existed. Key technological studies in digital collaborative design are attempting to solve the above problems and to provide a network service for national designers and between designers and national customers.

Cooperation Opportunity

In July 2010 China and Italy signed a memorandum of cooperation in the field of design innovation. This was the starting program of China-Italian Design Innovation Center that was jointly established by Ministry of Science and Technology of the PRC and Italy's Ministry of Public Administration and Innovation in April 2011. This program is a good bridge connecting the science and technology and human resources, development opportunities and market opportunity of the two countries. It will effectively promote the resource integration in all fields of design innovation and push forward the cluster design and integrated creation in the sense of transnational and interdisciplinary, making the foreign design resources serving domestic demand effectively.

Embracing the most abundant resources of talents, technologies and intellectual property reserves in the field of design and creativity, Italy remains its leading position in the area of design driven social and economic development and scientific and technological innovation. Through this project, the Chinese side can make full use of advantages in human resource, geography and economic growth to develop entirely new design and creativity subjects adjusting the 21thcentury of information times and the Chinese social development so as to drive the research and development of the information technologies and other key technologies in the related fields.

Project Objective

The objective of this project is to combine the Sino-Italian design innovation and technological resources to conduct key technological studies in digital collaborative design in the area of Sino-Italian design innovation and integrate the two countries’ design talents, infrastructure and market resources through digital collaborative design platform to solve real-time and dynamic docking and integrated creation problems in local design and innovation demand or international design and innovation resources.

Project contents

1, use Italy design resources and latest internet technology to solve the problems of communication and of completed technology and related toolkit and of intellectual property database in key technological studies in digital collaborative design between Sino-Italy designers.

2, provide an opening, sharing and usable network on key technological studies in digital collaborative design for Sino-Italy designers.

3, set up and connect a professional laboratory and groups of workshops to realize a perfect connection in key technological studies in digital collaborative design.
