The Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna is a public University with a special status admitting excellent students at graduate, doctoral and post-doctoral level in the sectors of engineering, medicine, agriculture, economics, law and political science. The mission of SSSA is to perform excellent research through a number of highly qualified research institutes.
The BioRobotics Institute of SSSA conducts theoretical and experimental research in biorobotics, a discipline characterized by a high degree of interdisciplinarity. For this reason, it has a strong tendency toward integrating heterogeneous bodies of knowledge, of both scientific and humanistic nature, in order to study the theoretical and practical problems associated with the development of advanced robotic systems. Over the course of its history, it has built and consolidated a vast wealth of knowledge and expertise in the fields of Service Robotics, Humanoid Robotics, Neurorobotics, Neurodevelopmental Bioengineering, Bionics, Neural Interfaces, Assistive Robotics, Robotics for Neurorehabilitation, Gerontechnologies, Biomimetic Robotics, Soft Robotics and Marine Robotics, as well as microfabrication technologies and for microrobotics applied in the medical field. Several robotic platforms have been developed in the framework of national and international projects, as for example humanoid robots, biomimetic robots, robotic and prosthetic hands, robotic systems for rehabilitation and for personal assistance of disable and elderly people.
