Advanced education, frontier research and innovation: this is The BioRobotics Institute of Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, founded in 2011. With time the Institute has built a wealth of knowledge and expertise in several fields of biorobotics and bionics, such as medical robotics, wearable technologies, collaborative robotics, bio-inspired robotics, neuroscience robotics, rehabilitation robotics and implantable technologies.
The Institute promotes the internationalization of didactics and scientific research through collaboration with the most prestigious international knowledge centers. The Institute aims to educate engineers that are scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs and problem solvers.
Our mission is based on three pillars:
- Education: MSc in Bionics Engineering and PhD program in BioRobotics;
- Research: scientific publications, national and international research projects, joint labs;
- Innovation: start-up companies, patents and industrial contracts.
The BioRobotics Institute has also activated an Educational Robotics program with schools in Tuscany, Italy. The program aims at bringing technology and robotics in schools and using them as a new instrument for teaching scientific and technical subjects.
The successful candidate will work in the concept, design and fabrication of autonomous intelligent systems and will be required to teach courses at all levels, within the context and requirements defined the scientific disciplinary sector
The workshop will be held on 25th of October 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, in the framework of the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS). The main organizers are Cesare Stefanini and Donato Romano.
Published in the journal Nanomaterials a new study coordinated by The BioRobotics Institute of Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. The flexible tactile sensors could be integrated into the sensorized skins of collaborative robots and prostheses, robots for surgery and robots for emergency response and natural disaster management.
