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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Most novel applications/technologies strongly emphasizes the development of new materials as the key ingredient to achieve novel capabilities.
The program NanoBioPhotonics deals with research and development in the field of imaging biological matter at nanoscale, with high spatial and temporal resolution.
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.
