Our facility has laboratories for Electromagnetic Compatibility, Electrical Safety and for Renewable Energies, equipped to carry out measurements of conformity with European directives and international technical standards, staffed with high-level personnel whose experience spans several decades, and with an organisation able to ensure that activities are carried out within previously agreed timescales. Its unique selling point is the ability to analyse unusual situations and to offer solutions likely to resolve them. 
The main equipment includes 2 semi-anechoic chambers, 2 shielded rooms, controlled power sources of up to 0.8 megawatts, 2 climatic chambers, an area for IP tests, areas for EMC tests, areas for fault tests and an area for tests on insulation materials. 

The laboratories are located respectively at Corso Spagna, 12 (Electromagnetic Compatibility laboratory) and at Corso Stati Uniti, 4 (laboratories for Electrical Safety and Renewable Energies), covering a total surface area of 1600 square metres. Both sites have modern, controlled environments with annexed logistics area for movement and storage of goods.

Research & Development

Crei-Ven’s activities

CREI Venoperates within Europe by carrying out activities associated with scientificand technological research and technical experimentation, and updatingactivities in the fields of industrial electronics, electromechanics andautomation.
At the request of companies, it provides rapid and cost-effective solutionsthat can be applied immediately to specific technical problems.

CREI Ven can also participate as a research partner in projectssupported by the European Union, which aim to increase the competitiveness ofEuropean industry.

Thanks to the continued and profitable collaboration with various universityresearch groups, CREI Ven is a research laboratory of the highest level,one of the few laboratories at a national and international level that is alsoopen to activities of a scientific nature.


History of the centre

Founded in 1995 as a non-profit-making private consortium by a group of leading companies in the Italian Veneto region, CREI Ven benefited from the start from active collaboration with Padua University. 


In 1997, once the start-up phase under private management was over, the corporate structure was enhanced further by the addition of the Padua Chamber of Commerce and the Padua Research Consortium, and the company became a public-private mixed consortium. 

At the end of 2002, a further change in the company’s structure took place, and it became a consortium company with limited liability, under the name of CREI Ven - Centro Ricerca Elettronica Industriale Veneto S.c.a.r.l.; the purpose of its activities remained essentially unchanged.


CREI Ven still represents today one of the few and most accomplished models of a consortium that thrives on the interaction and collaboration between companies and universities. We benefit from our collaborations with Padua University, with the Galileo Science and Technology Park, with local research bodies and with certifying bodies.


We have the knowledge, skills and tools required to provide global solutions to meet your needs for innovation, from research and development to product certification.

We can support and strengthen the work of your teams at all stages of product development, to identify and remedy critical aspects during the planning stage, to identify and understand the applicable regulations and evolving standards, and to help you optimise timelines and costs.
