The TeCIP Institute was created in Pisa in 2001 as a Centre of Excellence of the Italian University, Scientific and Technological Research Ministry.
Core activities of the Institute are research and education linked to Communication, Information and Perception Technologies.
Main research areas are:
• optical communication networks through the use of photonic technologies, also in the fields of sensors and biophotonics;
• IT applications of embedded real-time systems and sensor networks for the Internet of Things;
• virtual environments and interface robotic systems for the study of human-machine interaction and human perception.
Scientific and technological research has an interdisciplinary character and is developed inside Laboratories, equipped with the utmost leading edge instruments and technologies.
The around 300 professors and researchers can count upon an annual budget of more than 10 million euro to develop their research activities, with the main objective of leading the innovation to an extent of technological development to be used on field.
The innovative training initiatives, taught in English, such as PhD, Master’s degrees and Italian University Masters, are in line with the highest international standards. The professional profiles are able to successfully find a position in either service/production bodies and businesses or public/private research structures.
The recent Quality of Research Evaluation (Valutazione della Qualità della Ricerca - VQR), run by the National Agency for University and Research Evaluation (ANVUR), located the TeCIP Institute in 1st position in the national ranking for the Industrial and Information Engineering, among medium-sized departments.
Enel, Sant’Anna School TeCIP Institute (Communication, Information and Perception Technologies) and Sant’Anna School sin-off company VR Media have developed a “3D Virtual Reality Maintenance Training”. The training course provides a broad understanding of computer-based interactive 3D simulations of virtual equipment that replicates the actual real life plant
“Savonarola”, directed by Pietro Bartolini of Theatre Academy of Florence, is partnered with Sant’Anna TeCIP Institute (Communication, Information and Perception Technologies) and the city council Comune di Firenze; it will take place in Florence Palazzo Vecchio on 17 February at 8.45 pm
All applications for the GE scholarships must be submitted by Monday, February 13. Applicants must have acquired at least two years’ experience in Artificial Intelligence, Predictive Modeling techniques, Machine Learning, and Data Analytics
