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.
“iSlag” is coordinated by Valentina Colla from the Industrial Engineering Centre of the Sant’Anna School TeCIP (Communication, Information and Perception Technologies) Institute, in partnership with a number of prestigious companies and research institutions, namely Vdeh-Betriebsforschungs Institut Gmbh (Germany), Institut fur Baustoff-Forschung Ev (Germany), Tenova Spa, Sidenor I+D (Spain), Tenaris Dalmine, Rina -Centro Sviluppo Materiali (Italy), Acciaierie di Calvisano Spa and Deutsche Edelstahlwerke Specialty Steel Gmbh & Co.Kg (Germany)
The project entitled EnerMIND aims at developing a novel approach for supporting efficiency improvement in energy management of electric steelworks thanks to a software characterized by a new IoT/IIoT architecture. The project is coordinated by Valentina Colla, is funded by the Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) and involves researchers for the TeCIP Institute of Sant'Anna School, in partnership with VDEh Betribforschungsinstitut GmbH and Danieli Automation Spa
Sant’Anna School and Vodafone are strengthening their partnership in 2021 as they commit to deepening their efforts on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Network Function Virtualization (NFV), to support timely, efficient and effective data center operations. The Telecom Operator offers 2 fully funded AI and ML research grants. Follow the link: https://bit.ly/39iGU32 for the application process. The deadline for applications is February 15th, 2021
