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.
The application deadline for fourteen “Seasonal Schools” offered by the Sant’Anna School for Advanced Studies in Pisa is Monday, 21 September 2020. The Seasonal School interdisciplinary programs offer talented Italian and international students the unique opportunity to access cutting edge research in areas such as material science and engineering, information and industrial engineering, physics, and optics
The Tuscany Theatre Foundation (Fondazione Teatro della Toscana), the Florence Theatre Academy (Accademia Teatrale di Firenze) and the TeCIP Institute PERCRO Lab at Sant’Anna School have partnered in the TESS project that aims to train a new generation of performing arts technicians in scenery synthesis. The project is under the supervision of Sant’Anna School professor of applied mechanics and robotics Massimo Bergamasco, and Pietro Bartolini, director of the Florence Theatre Academy
Childhood epileptic encephalopathies are age-dependent disorders of the brain. The international classification identified three entities of developmental encephalopathy, epileptic encephalopathy, and developmental and epileptic encephalopathy (DEE). Many biological pathways could be involved in the pathogenesis of DEEs. Epilepsy and epileptiform discharges might impact on cognition via several mechanisms although they are not fully understood, and gold standard evidence for treatment of epileptic encephalopathies remains limited.
