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.
On June 22 at 9.15 pm, at the SantˈAnna School Science Café final event, Laura Montironi, engineering student at SantˈAnna School, will give her talk “Hyperloop: l’Italia in treno a 1000 chilometri all’ora” discussing her work on subsonic high-speed train reaching 1.000 km/h
“Piranesi. La fabbrica dell’utopia” virtual exhibition is at the Palazzo Braschi, until October 15. The PercroLab created a 3D video: virtual visitors to the exhibition can use the VR headset to view 360-degree Piranesi's prison interiors
The Tuscan Academy of Science and Humanities “La Colombaria” organized three seminars on “Roboethics, from algorithms to humanoids” from June 15 to 29 in Florence. Giorgio Buttazzo, Professor of Engineering, Erica Palmerini, Professor of Law, and Barbara Henry, Professor of Political Philosophy, will discuss ethics in science and technology and the impact of robotization on society
