With over 45,000 sq. mt. laboratory spaces including Genoa Central Lab (30,000 sq. mt) and 10 satellite centers in Italy and 2 abroad in Harvard and MIT, IIT is committed to keep on working towards bio-inspired technological innovation for human beings.
We investigate the working of nature that the process of evolution has determined in thousands of years. Our technologies mimics what evolution has already improved and adapted to combine both efficiency and sustainability. A new bio-inspired bio-mimetic technological paradigm and in doing this we bring new knowledge that can be used by mankind. The approach of IIT stems from a mixture of talent and inter-disciplinary science through a strong inter-connected knowledge-base.
The mutual reciprocal work of diverse disciplines give rise to progress and innovation aiding technology transfer to society to help us shape our future.
At the moment main projects include: Graphene FET Flagship (the European project for the development of graphene and two-dimensional materials), IIT-INAIL Rehab Technologies, Nikon Imaging Center, a joint lab in collaboration with Nikon dedicated to light microscopy and 19 ERC (European Research Council) grants. Since 2006 more than 160 European Projects, 170 national and international funding projects and 470 industrial projects were won.
