The Institute of Biorobotics and the IIT Italian Institute of Technology, both hosted at Polo Sant’Anna Valdera, share ideas, research projects and interdisciplinary synergy. Their internal workshop, designed to explore possibilities for joint research activities, will be held on April 12-13. Christian Cipriani, director of the Biorobotics Institute, Barbara Mazzolai, director of the IIT Micro-Biorobotics Center, and Pierdomenico Perata, rector of Sant’Anna School, participate in this 2-day workshop open to academic staff and postgraduate students, which is aimed at building new areas of interest and expertise, as well as thinking about new tools for bionics, soft-robotics, rehabilitation robotics, and micro-nano surgery.

“This workshop aims to provide a platform for researchers to develop the next generation of robot systems, encompassing surgical robotics, rehabilitation robotics and soft robotics – says Christian Cipriani – Ongoing research at Institutes of Technology across Italy, is aimed at the development of novel technologies to augment human capabilities. In Pontedera, the Institute of Biorobotics and IIT increased their research competitiveness through collaboration. Our new study on biocompatible tattoo electrodes shows that a joint approach to scientific investigation is an effective means to the development of future interdisciplinary research”.

“The Italian Institute of Technology aims to foster research and innovation– underlines Barbara Mazzolai – Higher education focuses on research to enhance synergies across disciplines; the IIT Micro-Biorobotics Center offers scholarships and financial support for talented PhD students in Biorobotics with an emphasis on areas related to education for sustainable development as sustainable development requires being aware of social challenges at the international, national and institutional levels”.
