RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Innovating means constantly evolving to be ready for future challenges. Since its foundation, NHAZCA has been focused on creating an increasingly indissoluble union between business and new technologies.
Following this approach, NHAZCA has dedicated a team to Research and Development, programming, design, engineering, prototyping of new Hardware and Software. The team is involved in several research projects, including international ones.
Thanks to this philosophy, NHAZCA has always been distinguished, at both national and international level, for its highly innovative approach and pioneering attitude.
NHAZCA promotes, also in collaboration with professional organizations and associations in Italy and abroad, highly professional training courses, focused on geotechnical and structural monitoring, remote sensing applications and support to land use planning and design.
The courses, designed to provide skills and updates in line with continuous technological and cultural developments, have already seen the participation in the last 10 years of more than 700 professionals from over 50 countries with the involvement of over 60 companies.
In recent years the training offer has been characterized by the organization of the International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring (ICGSM): a technical and business exchange meeting for the professional, academic and industrial world of geotechnical and structural monitoring, with the participation of leading international experts.
