Comau Robotics Partners with Ferrari to Support Robotics Education


October 24, 2022

Comau Robotics has partnered with Ferrari to help create the e.DO Learning Center, an educational environment for students and teachers that uses the e.DO robot to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects, coding and robotics. The center recently opened at the Istituto Istruzione Superiorie (IIS) in Modena, Italy.

The companies said the initiative highlights the increasing importance of bringing robotics from the factory to new sectors, as well as providing students with a unique learning environment that can be fun and engaging and teach skills that can be used for future jobs.

The learning center is a hands-on concept that provides teaching materials and tools to help students from eight to 19 explore robotics, coding, and STEM subjects through the support of the e.DO robot. Soft skills and work culture are also taught as part of the educational path, the company said. The center will include five six-axis robots from Comau, along with materials and accessories.

“This important initiative, which has been carried out with such a prestigious company as Ferrari, is proof of Comau’s dedication to creating social value for the local territory and designing advanced robotics solutions for new sectors,” said Pietro Gorlier, CEO of Comau. “The e.DO Learning Center is the ideal tool to engage and stimulate new generations to develop innovative skills, both technical and personal, which are increasingly necessary within today’s study paths and the ever-changing world of work. Commitment to developing cutting-edge technologies is one of the foundations of this educational project, and a fundamental part of Comau’s DNA.”

“The e.DO Learning Center is a key part of giving students the opportunity to experience hands-on learning from a six-axis robot with the help of an expert trainer, and in doing so, allow them to build a solid foundation in STEM and entry-level robotics,” said Ezio Fregnan, Comau Academy and Business Education Director. “It reflects Comau Academy’s commitment to anticipating future training needs and developing innovative and stimulating educational projects for the future generation of young talents.”
