Prof. Stefano Odorizzi is an internationally recognized expert in the fields of Computational Mechanics and more generally of Simulation Based Engineering and Sciences. Throughout his career he has successfully pioneered a number of ventures aimed at the transfer of technology from academia to industry. He is a founding partner and current President of Enginsoft Italy, a company accredited by the Italian Ministry of University and Research as a lab for technology transfer from the academic world to industry in the field of virtual prototyping. He is a very active member of the engineering simulation community and currently is chairman of the board of the TCN Consortium, Reactive Search and EnginSoft Germany. He is also a co-founder and current board member of SWS (Soil Water Structures) in Trento, Italy, a charter member and current board member of Technet (Technology Network Alliance) in Switzerland, and board member of EnginSoft UK and EnginSoft France.
For the last twenty years Prof. Odorizzi has been a project leader/board member of a number of important EU Research initiatives including NADIA (New Automotive components Designed for and manufactured by Intelligent processing of light Alloys), IDEAL (Integrated Design Automation Laboratory), EUA4X (European Atelier for Engineering and Computational Sciences), MUSIC (MUlti-layers control&cognitive System to drive metal and plastic production line for Injected Components), SOL2HY (Solar To Hydrogen Hybrid Cycles), just to name a few.
Prof. Odorizzi is also an adjunct professor in Computational Mechanics at the University of Padova, a post he has held for the last 30 years. He holds a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Padova, in Italy and has pursued post graduate studies in numerical simulation.
