The teaching plan is the first step of a wider strategic partnership, has been originated by a Memorandum of Understandings
of both associations, whose purpose is to promote the development of professional figures, industry and market.

Topics range from Retail and residential lighting to street one, offices and Places of Worship, as well as public tenders or energy-saving appliances.
“the engine of development and internationalization is Innovation, states Massimiliano Guzzini, president of ASSIL. Innovation in fact, flourishes & spreads only in a cultural environment. Networks, continuous education and capability to implement synergies, are crucial.
ASSIL and AIDI have the common objective in developing an industry and its professional figures to the highest standards. This is the reason why we created a Memorandum of Understanding, we want an increasingly competitive lighting industry at a national, European and worldwide level. Thanks to ASSIL’S deep knowledge of regulamentations and the AIDI’S expertise in education and development of light appliances, a fast-evolving sector in an advanced cultural environment is about to be created. That’s the reason why I’m proud of “Formazione in Luce” project, that is the first step of a wider collaboration of AIDI and ASSIL.
Importance of education has been underlined by Margherita Suss, AIDI’s president
“Education is a strategic asset for personal development and is going to become much more relevant in a context like the current one, in wich, increasingly specific knowledge, capabilities and attitudes are required. Acquiring new professional capabilities is one of AIDI’s strategic lever, a necessary advantage to stay on the market. It boosts every stakeholders’ satisfaction in wich lighting must define volumes and space functions, keeping up with what the future is going to bring. I strongly encouraged this initiative with ASSIL to handle the most important themes in their full complexity: technology, regulamentations, aesthetics, enhancing their value as well.
In addition to “Formazione in Luce” project, ASSIL&AIDI are about to begin some other synergic projects: articles, events, joint meetings and technical ones, whose aim is to deveop, harmonise and make easier all the set of related regulamentations, and to extend the representativity of associates to research and national institutions, on lighting-related topics.
