Wed, 13/05/2015

Trieste (Italy), 13th May 2015 – Racing motorcycles, and engineering simulation and optimization technologies – that’s the theme of the workshop and the guest of honor is the world’s foremost expert in the field. On the 3rd of June, in conjunction with the conferment of an honorary degree to Masao Furusawa by the University of Trieste, the ex-Yamaha guru will be among a group of experts speaking at the special event sponsored by ESTECO as part of its academic program and promoted in collaboration with the University of Trieste.

In recent decades, engineering software tools have become an essential part of sports technology, representing a fundamental resource for companies aiming to stay on top. Masao Furusawa’s long and successful tenure at Yamaha as head engineer of MOTOGP has certainly proven this.

The workshop, an initiative of the ESTECO Academy program dedicated to university students, will kick off with an introduction given by Enrico Nobile, one of the founding partners of ESTECO and head of the Mechanical Engineering program at the University of Trieste. The event also includes a panel of experts who will deliver perspectives on the different aspects of motocycle design. Among the confirmed speakers are Andrea Friso (Racing Operation Consultant) and Diego Minen from VI-Grade, a leading Italian-German provider of simulation system technologies that specializes in transportation.
