MECSPE 2025: Transition 5.0 Plan for the biennium 2024-2025

the biennium 2024-2025

MECSPE is getting ready for the March 2024 edition with a rich programme to support companies in their technological evolution path. In the biennium 2024-2025, companies of the sector will be able to take advantage of the incentives, in the form of tax credits, foreseen by the Plan to support their transformation process.

The implementation of MIMIT’s Transition 5.0 Plan , which aims to support the digital and green transformation of Italian companies, with a special focus on sustainability, for the creation of an increasingly green industry, is just a short time away.

Thanks to the Plan, resources amounting to 6.3 billion are on the way, which will be able to support the manufacturing sector, with its more than 506 thousand active enterprises [1], in its sustainable transformation.

In fact, according to MECSPE’s latest Observatory [2], one-third of entrepreneurs are already set to apply for incentives, showing the industry’s willingness to follow on an increasingly green path.

Plan 5.0 will offer Italian industry the opportunity to initiate investments that will combine the theme of digitization with that of ecology.

In fact, it will be possible to apply for incentives to support activities for the purchase of tangible and intangible capital goods for the reduction of energy consumption, the development of facilities for the self-production of energy from renewable sources and storage of energy produced.

In the biennium 2024-2025, companies will also be able to invest in staff training: it will be possible to apply for incentives to acquire technological skills relevant to the implementation of the digital and energy transition.

Companies will then be incentivized to invest in sustainability, innovation, and training to foster a transformation of the entire industry.

Incentives and NRRP, central topics at MECSPE

This change will be spearheaded by MECSPE, the benchmark exhibition for the manufacturing industry, organized by Senaf and scheduled to be held at BolognaFiere March 5-7, 2025.

It is precisely on the three lines of innovation, training, and sustainability that MECSPE is developed, which for more than 20 years has been guiding Italian companies in their green and digital transition to keep a high level of competitiveness in the country’s entrepreneurship.

For this reason, incentives and NRRP will once again be a key theme within the event, to highlight the great benefits they can bring to the industry and provide entrepreneurs with all the necessary information.

Not a few companies will be applying for them: according to the most recent MECSPE Observatory, although most (49 percent) have not yet taken a decision, more than three out of ten entrepreneurs plan to apply for 5.0 incentives, remembering the important benefits already obtained thanks to 4.0 incentives, which enabled nearly 40 percent of entrepreneurs to develop projects that would otherwise be unfeasible.

The number of entrepreneurs looking with interest at the new measure, in the biennium 2024-2025, is bound to increase as a result of recent updates and the imminence of the now increasingly concrete and defined plan.

In fact, 84 percent of entrepreneurs say they are ready to follow the path of sustainable transition by digitizing their business processes.

METEF returns to Bologna

Sustainability will therefore be the focus of the 23rd edition of MECSPE, which will be held in conjunction with METEF, the international aluminum supply chain exhibition.

«With the arrival of the Transition 5.0 Plan, Italian companies will have important incentives available to accelerate the digital and green transition process» comments Maruska Sabato, Project Manager of MECSPE. «At MECSPE 2025 we will accompany entrepreneurs on this crucial path, providing all the information needed to make the most of the facilities provided and to adopt the most innovative technological solutions for sustainability. In addition, with the return of METEF within the event, we will give ample space to the aluminum sector and its key role in an increasingly circular economy

Many initiatives will accompany the return of METEF, including the third edition of the Aluminum Energy Summit, a conference that will showcase concrete contributions and technological solutions that the aluminum industry can activate to achieve circular economy and decarbonization goals.

In fact, aluminum is an infinitely recyclable material with extraordinary versatility and resilience, an indispensable element to accompany companies in their sustainable transformation process.
