"SESCO-Tools and solutions for knowledge" aims to innovate the industrial education and training processes through a technology platform based on virtual reality and augmented reality. This system, which can be used in the fields of industrial production, quality control and maintenance, acts as an enabling factor for the diffusion of the Industry 4.0 paradigms at the operational level through the review of staff training methods. The use of interactive technologies, capable of evolving the staff training methodologies, is aimed at reducing the times, costs and risks related to industrial training activities while increasing the competitiveness of companies in terms of industrial production and maintenance.
