Arcese launches new project with GMS in London

The bond between Arcese and the academic world is strengthened to enhance education and innovation.

At Arcese we strongly believe in the value of innovation, education and research. For this reason, we promote constant dialogue and collaboration with the academic world, whose aim is to see innovative projects come to life on topics of mutual interest. Among the initiatives found in agreements with prestigious Italian and international universities are the commissioning of internship projects, degree theses and ad hoc projects.

In October, a new international project was launched which saw the collaboration between Arcese UK and the Greenwich School of Management (GSM) in London. The latter has developed the “Vamonos” project, which is part of the Placement/Project Design and Implementation (PPDI) programme, with the aim of creating work experience and opportunities for students in order to apply the skills acquired during the training course.

Vamonos brings together 14 university students who will work for 10 weeks on the data collection software for digital tachographs installed on Arcese fleet vehicles in the UK. The students involved will have the task of developing improvement strategies in order to automate some of the operations, such as tachograph data download, monitoring and activity planning. At the end of their experience, they will present a project and the results achieved to Arcese UK board.

Jonathan Lawal, who leads on the project at GSM London, said: “Thanks to our partnership with Arcese our students will get a first-hand working insight into the issues faced by a major international company and could potentially play a part in developing its future operations. This gives Arcese access to some fresh thinking whole creating a valuable opportunity for our students.”

In addition to lectures and classwork, students will visit the Arcese branch in Tilbury, providing further opportunity to witness the full scope of the company's operations.

The Vamonos project - explained Mara Calzolari, Corporate Human Resources Manager of the Arcese Group - was intended as a meeting point between the company and the students to provide them with the necessary operational skills required by the business world.The partnership with GSM London began in 2015 and has since been consolidated due to numerous projects implemented” continued Calzolari, “From the Vamonos project we expect even more interest from the participants and we would like to thank GSM London for the opportunity.In addition, we believe that a company should be a source of enrichment for the territory in which it operates, also from the point of view of creating employment opportunities, and the collaboration with universities really meets this demand,” she concluded.
