Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI, www.polimi.it ), founded in 1863, is a scientific technological university, which trains engineers, architects and industrial designers. Research activity is carried out in 12 departments. Two main campuses are located in Milano and five other premises are spread in the Region (Como, Lecco, Mantova, Piacenza, Cremona). They host about 46,000 Bachelor and Master students and 1200 PhD Students. Politecnico di Milano has always focused on the quality and innovation of its teaching and research developing a fruitful relationship with the business and productive world by means of experimental research and technological transfer. Research has always been linked to didactics and is a priority commitment, which allowed Politecnico di Milano to achieve high quality results at an international level as to join the university to the business world.

Research activity constitutes a parallel path to the one formed by cooperation and alliances with the industrial system. Knowing the world in which you are going to work is a vital requirement for training students. By referring back to the needs of the productive, industrial world and public administration, research is facilitated in following new paths and dealing with the need for constant and rapid innovation.

Politecnico di Milano participates in the project with the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering, more specifically with its laboratory Neuroengineering and medical Robotics laboratory (NearLab), and with the Technology Transfer Office (TTO).
