The most recent success in the emerging area of Biorobotics came for professor Paolo Dario, director of Sant’Anna School Biorobotics Institute, who received the RAS – Robotics and Automation Society pioneer award to recognize “individuals who by virtue of initiating new areas of research, development or engineering, have had a significant impact on development of the robotics and/or automation fields”, as the IEEE (the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity) Awards Committee announced on January 10, 2017.

“I am deeply honored to receive this award”, said Paolo Dario, “despite all difficulties, in our country we can still conduct high quality research. First and foremost, I would like to thank the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies of Pisa but also our entire university community that provided a supportive research environment, where individuals and research groups are valued and encouraged”.

In 2014, Professor Paolo Dario was awarded the IEEE Robotics and Automation George Saridis Leadership Award in Robotics and the RAS Pioneer Award comes three years after “for developing fully autonomous robots that do not need infrastructure and enabling a Pervasive Technology of the Future”.

On June 1, 2017, Paolo Dario will be awarded at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) to be held in Singapore.
