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 award is presented at the Scuola Annuale del Gruppo Nazionale di Bioingegneria. The Award Committee, chaired by Maria Chiara Carrozza, nominates annually the recipients of the GNB Prize: 11 awards are given on September 11 to undergraduate students and 8 to doctoral students
Professor Maria Chiara Carrozza will attend the conference "L'Unione Europa e l'Italia tra passato, presente e futuro – The Past, Present and Future of the European Union and Italy", hosted by Fondazione Edison celebrating its 20th Anniversary on Tuesday, September 17 at 3.30 pm in Milan - Palazzo Edison
The “Il Tempo delle Donne – The Women’s Era” ambit will not be limited to human body and medical advances, but encompasses also nature and climate change, philosophical and social development, and artificial intelligence, biotechnology skills and techniques
