Thanks to funding obtained by Regione Emilia-Romagna through the Call for Proposals Bando per il sostegno a progetti di promozione dell’export e partecipazione ad eventi fieristici in 2023, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the Cohesion Fund, RIC3D took part in the AI Summit London trade fair event, which was held in London on June 14 and 15, 2023. During the international event, RIC3D had the opportunity to present its ROG (Real Organ Generation) R&D project, an interactive software application that allows users to simulate virtual surgery operations in VR.

Step By Tech

Recipient: RIC3D S.r.l.

Initiative implemented under Priority Axis I – RESEARCH, INNOVATION AND COMPETITIVENESS.

Goal: Support export promotion projects and participation in trade fair events in 2023

Action 1.3.2 – Encouraging internationalization processes to strengthen competitiveness and attractiveness in the markets of the regional production system

Project Description: Participation in the 2023 edition of the AI Summit London and presentation of the ROG (Real Organ Generation) R&D project, an interactive software application that allows users to simulate virtual surgery operations in VR.


Participation in the AI Summit London was a key opportunity for RIC3D to achieve two primary goals: consolidate its network by making its project known in European and non-European countries, targeting in particular clinics and hospitals, and collaborate with colleagues from other nationalities and fields, thus creating new opportunities for know-how transfer and professional growth.

RIC3D has also devoted considerable resources to the realization of two additional goals: access new resources such as funding sources, new equipment and specific laboratories, and build a network of relationships and collaborations useful for the future success of research activities.


Participation in the international event significantly broadened RIC3D’s target market and facilitated the creation of strategic partnerships with research institutions, universities and companies from the countries involved. RIC3D succeeded in attracting innovative companies, paying special attention to building strong and lasting relationships.

The event represented for RIC3D, as well as for all the professionals involved, an unmissable moment to get in touch with the latest developments in the high-tech sector, proving to be the ideal context to explore the latest trends in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

This facilitated the creation of channels for discussion and exchange that can facilitate the achievement of new levels of innovation, generate cost reductions and incentivize new investments.

RIC3D used the AI Summit London as a tool for dissemination and awareness raising with respect to the results of the R&D project called ROG (Real Organ Generation), which was selected by the Team based on the target sectors of the exhibition event.

Considering that the event focused mainly on Artificial Intelligence solutions, RIC3D chose to illustrate its innovations in the Med-Tech field with the ROG platform. This interactive software application allows users to simulate virtual surgery operation in VR and leverages new AI-based algorithms to generate high-resolution 3D images from diagnostic CT SCANs.

The decision to present the ROG project in London was also driven by a desire to demonstrate the value of its AI solutions and make significant progress toward a future in which AI plays a key role in improving people’s quality of life.
