The Italian Association for Non-Destructive Evaluation (AIPND) is organizing its structure to respond to novel national, European and international challenges related to NDE4.0.
Typically, AIPND organizes its activity through scientific working groups and in this case it is also organizing a working group able to create synergies between scientific and technical entities with some goals to reach: a) To collect the needs of the scientific and industrial world with respect to issues and needs of NDE 4.0; b) to organize technical tables that bring together the technical and scientific worlds with respect to the main themes of NDE 4.0; c) To organize seminars, workshops to disseminate content on specific themes of interest as metrology, artificial intelligence, standardization, etc. d) to encourage the participation to national and international calls about research and developments of solutions for NDE4.0.
Next steps of AIPND will be: i) formalize the working group, define the president of the working group and create the thematic subgroups; ii) to invite companies and associates to participate in the working group's activities; iii) to create a questionnaire to identify industrial criticalities at a national level about NDE 4.0; iv) define the ways and the strategies to involve companies.
