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.
The ICT-COISP research centre at the Communication, Information and Perception Technologies Institute (TeCip) of Sant’Anna School and GE Oill & Gas collaborate to offer postgraduate scholarship programs to develop research on digital technologies. GE provides financial support for a 7-month period scholarship program focused on Artificial Intelligence, Predictive Modelling techniques, Machine Learning, and Data Analytics.
Computer and Telecommunication Engineering, Informatics, Mathematics, and Physics graduates are eligible to apply for the scholarship.
Three Sant’Anna School spin-off companies were awarded the national CNA – Confederazione Nazionale dell’Artigianato “CambiaMenti” prize at the Chamber of Commerce in Pisa
Pisa provides its community with significant opportunities for research and its rich academic environment offers an unparalleled leadership in robotic technologies used in a variety of tasks – robots, from Slavic term robota can serve several human needs
