Our History

Since 1992, the Italian Manufacturing Association has been the cultural and professional point of reference on innovative manufacturing processes and technologies for industry.

A.I.TE.M. was originally born as an exclusively academic association, aiming at creating a constant meeting and development occasion for the academic members of the Manufacturing Systems and Technologies sector. It then evolved into a wider and more inclusive perspective, embracing collaboration with the industrial world as well as special attention to the youngest researchers.

The annual conference and members’ meeting, held in a different university every year, are the most visible moment of vitality of the Association for its stakeholders and, more generally, for the national public.

High-quality research, unceasing reflection on the education provided, meticulous attention to innovation and intense activity, fostered by the direct participation of members of all ages and provenance: all this makes A.I.TE.M. one of the scientific associations of reference operating in Italy.
