Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI)

Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI), founded in 1863, is the biggest Engineering and Architecture University in Italy. 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 26,000 Bachelor and Master students and 900 Ph.D. Students. The turnover is about 400 million Euros of which more than 1/3 self-funded. The Department of Electronics Information and Bioengineering (DEIB – ICT and Bioengineering, http://www.deib.polimi.it/ita/home) hosts almost 250 faculty members, around 100 technical and administrative staff and around 200 Ph.D. students and research fellows. Research is carried out in automation, electronics, computer science, power electrical engineering, telecommunications and biomedical engineering with a huge variety of expertise and laboratories. Spinoffs and startups are fostered as well by the DEIB. Specifically, related expertises to MoveCare are biomimetic engineering, rehabilitation engineering and technology, technologies for therapy, monitoring and non-invasive diagnostics. MoveCare proposal mainly involves the Neuroengineering and medical Robotics laboratory (NearLab; www.biomed.polimi.it/nearlab0). Several EU-funded projects are currently ongoing at the NearLab: as a partner in RETRAINER and EDEN2020. Recent projects in which POLIMI has played also the coordination role are: MUNDUS (STREP), ROBOCAST (STREP), ACTIVE (IP); as a partner: EUROSURGE (CSA), REALNET and EU Ms ART (Erasmus EMCR).
