Advanced education, frontier research and innovation: this is The BioRobotics Institute, one of the six of Scuola Sant’Anna, founded in 2011. The Institute has built a vast wealth of knowledge and expertise in several fields of biorobotics, such as: social robotics, industrial robotics, assistive/rehabilitation/surgical robotics, neural engineering, cognitive systems, bio-inspired robots and their ethical, legal, social and economic implications. The Institute aims to act as a linking bridge among international centres of knowledge and to create a new concept of engineers that are scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs and problem solvers.
Our mission is based on three pillars:
- Education, at all levels of postgraduate training: a MSc in Bionics Engineering and a PhD program in BioRobotics;
- Research, organized in 8 research Areas and 9 research Laboratories;
- Innovation, which promotes entrepreneurial skills such as the ability to invent, to file patents and to create start-up companies.
The BioRobotics Institute has also activated an Educational Robotics program with schools in Tuscany, Italy. The program aims at bringing technology and robotics in schools and using them as a new instrument for teaching scientific and technical subjects.
