Education, Research and Technology Transfer. The BioRobotics Institute is part of Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, a public University that holds a unique position within higher education system in Italy.
The Institute wants to act as a linking bridge to international centres of knowledge and to create a new concept of engineers that are scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs, able to invent and solve problems, and to create new companies in high technology sectors (biomedical engineering, microengineering, robotics, mechatronics).
The BioRobotics Institute hosts a PhD programme in Biorobotics. The Institute has also activated with many schools the Educational Robotic project, an integrated system making use of Robotics as a method to increase the quality of scientific and technical education in public school.
In the field of research, the Institute has eight research areas that include nine research laboratories. The results of the research have a concrete impact on the industrial sector. Technology transfer creates value through knowledge and encourages the development of start-up companies and the issue of patents.
