2009–2011 SOFIA (Smart Objects for Intelligent Applications), VII European Framework Program, founded through the European Artemis programme under the subprogramme SP3 “Smart environments and scalable digital service”, grant agreement n. 100017. The project, leaded by Nokia, aims to investigate how to make "information" in the physical world available for smart services - connecting physical world with information world

2005-2007 EPOCH (European Network of Excellence in Open Cultural Heritage), VI European Framework Program, contract number IST-2002-507382. The project aimed to join a hundred European cultural institutions efforts to improve the quality and effectiveness of the use of Information and Communication Technology for Cultural Heritage

2001-2003 MUSE (Museums and Sites Explorer) within the Italian National Industrial Research Program PARNASO, MURST contract number 4946, October 2000. The project, leaded by Ducati Sistemi S.p.a, aimed to develop a prototype of a sensor augmented mobile multimedia guide to be used in museums and archaeological sites

and by collaborating with industrial partners, including:

Since 2013 ArTeN S.r.l. AutoCAD and ZWCAD software development (

2012 CCPB S.r.l. within a Regional project on LCA analysis of agro-food chain

2009–2011 Eurotech, Consorzio Cooperative Costruzioni (CCC), Nokia within the SOFIA project on the design of Smart Environment Applications for supporting large buildings maintenance

2007-2009 Telecom Italia S.p.a. on context aware services for mobile devices
