“We were pleasantly surprised by the success of the project!”, says Andrea Bertaia, CEO & co-founder of ALBA Robot. “I'm not talking about the market, but about the collaboration: we found ourselves around many roundtables and a few days after the meetings, the companies wanted to collaborate without waiting to see what the return will be. After all, a return is immediately evident: we are using the technologies we know to help those who, for infinite reasons, move slower”.
