The objective of the Brain Science program is to identify the molecular mechanisms of the neurotransmission and of the synaptic plasticity, including brain diseases, and the brain interface with chips.
The goal of this platform is to tackle the increasing demand for portable, alternative energy sources, required in very important industrial areas such as automation and robotics, portable electronics and automotive.
The program NanoBioPhotonics deals with research and development in the field of imaging biological matter at nanoscale, with high spatial and temporal resolution.
The Graphene program is a technology-oriented program that targets novel applications based on graphene – the new bidimensional material derived from graphite and characterized by lightness, resistance, transparency, flexibility, electrical and thermal conductivity – and on other two-dimensional (2D) crystals such as boron nitrate and transition metal dicalchogenides.
The main goal of this program is to develop a new generation of therapeutic approaches and tools that will improve the treatment of a disease, address the underlying causes and biological mechanisms, and modulate its progression.
Human perception, action and cognition are geared to enable coordination and communication with others. Consequently deficits of cognitive, sensorial and/or motor abilities impacts on the social life of humans, leading to marginalization.
Most novel applications/technologies strongly emphasizes the development of new materials as the key ingredient to achieve novel capabilities.
Computation is a national and international network of computational scientists with diverse and complementary backgrounds ranging from quantum chemistry to statistical mechanics and coarse-grained models.
New Materials program deals with the development of novel classes of materials combining Nanotechnology, Materials Chemistry and Materials Engineering.
The Robot Rehab program focus on robotic rehabilitation developing exoskeletons for disabled, prosthetic devices and new rehabilitative tools.

IIT opens four international tenure track positions on different research areas for high ranked scientists in 4 italian cities: Turin, Genoa, Naples and Rome
With the best performance improvement among Italian Institutes, IIT has been ranked by the journal Nature among the 100 research institutes and universities in the world that in the period 2012-2015 have published scientific articles in high impact journals
To break even in three years, and have 100 employees in five years. The first industrial plant will be based in Genoa. Hunova-the first rehabilitative robotic platform - will be marketed from 2017 around the world, starting in Europe and the US. The platform, CE-Certified and shortly to be FDA certified, is already in use in several hospitals and rehabilitation centres in Italy. The first clinical trials are about to start in the US
The journal Microelectronic Engineering selected Alessandro Chiolerio, IIT researcher, among the finalists of the Young Investigator Award and Lectureship 2016.
R1 “Your Personal Humanoid” is of Italian design, 50% plastic, 1.25m high, 50kg of weight, will initially cost as a small car, and in the future, as a product on the market, a few thousand Euros. Within the next 12-18 months, the production model will be implemented on a large scale with the involvement of private investors.
