We met well-integrated researchers, they almost seemed like our employees. I admit that perhaps before knowing them, we imagined them unfamiliar with practical application. Instead they surprised us in a positive way, showing no fear in "dirty their hands". They have actually solved the problem that we submitted, and they did it in a short time, within a month, at a reasonable cost and demonstrating advanced skills.

The collaboration with the network of researchers from Find Your Doctor has identified effectively the most suitable figures to face our member companies’ problems. The multidisciplinary approach to the same problem has allowed to propose solutions as complete as possible and consistent with expectations. It is a very performative service, even for small enterprises with whom they create a mutual trust and understanding relationship.

The researchers involved have proven to be competent and have properly understood a specific technical problem of a mechanical processing. The approach modality occurred via an auditing service. We especially appreciated the different approach used compared to the regular resolution attempt we usually adopted in production. Some ideas on the traceability and reducing variability of manufactured tools have been used as the current production standards.

The final report of the scouting offered the company the opportunity to analyze the problem from a different view. The approach has been engineered, in-depth, on a theoretical and concrete basis at the same time. Extremely positive note: reasonable timing.

The experience with FYD was exciting. It was possible to exploit my scientific knowledge in order to improve the efficiency of an Italian company. Being directly in contact with the people that found the problem was an essential aspect to solve the issue. In this way, we avoided the danger of bureaucratisation that could have weigh down the counselling process. I believe that this efficient connection pattern between the world of research and the production should be taken as an example for other regions.

The consulting experience with FYD was definitely positive. The project is totally innovative and it knows how to leaverage professional untapped resources in our country. I hope it will be an example and inspiration both for future consultancies as well as for existing companies that still do not know they can benefit from this kind of support.

From the beginning, I felt that the Find Your Doctor initiative has to be supported and after having participated, I am sponsoring it among friends and colleagues. I believe it has a dual positive value, because it merges us (those of the ivory tower) with the real world and vice versa. I was really happy when I heard that our job had been appreciated by the company.

I think it is interesting and important initiative for both researchers and companies. On our side, we can deal with a real problem for companies outside the universities, using a methodological approach that we are gaining thanks to a doctorate. On the other side, companies themselves lean to young, motivated and very prepared people in order to better understand a problem and try to find a solution. It is important then that the figure of the PhD increasingly spreads and is appreciated in the corporate world, which unfortunately does not always occur.

Find Your Doctor gives the opportunity to face new and exciting challenges, allowing you to help companies on the field with the skills you have acquired with your research. It is a great meeting point between knowledge, research and industry and an experience that opens up new roads.

The Find Tour Doctor team was efficient in organizing the meeting between us, researchers and the customer as well as prompted in responding and supporting my needs. The most interesting aspects have been the intellectual challenge imposed by the problem, the need of designing a usable solution by a customer without a specific scientific background and the opportunity to have a closer look at the issues in local SMEs.

The staff who followed our collaboration provided remarkable help, especially with regard to identifying the goals of the work and its final drafting, helping us to highlight important details regarding both the problem and our capabilities.

Compared to my initial expectations, the experience was much more formative: to understand the real needs of the company closely and to find practical solutions from my theoretical background was really interesting.

I can certainly emphasize the importance of this project that I hope can be made known among companies and universities. I did this experience at a professional time when I was trying to diversify my skills and to be part of this group really changed my perspective, especially in seeing how a company is interested in our technological know-how. Seeing your experience being recognized and above all valorized is very important especially for a PhD.

The client company and its representatives seemed initially unconvinced of our capabilities, while I thought they would hardly be inclined to innovation. In the end, they changed idea and so did I.
