Ph.D. program of national interest in Robotics and Intelligent Machines
To enhance the skills and competencies in Robotics and Intelligent Machines distributed throughout the country, create fertile synergies between disciplines, universities, research institutions, and companies, and consolidate the excellent Italian positioning on the international scene, a unifying cultural project is necessary.
This cultural project is carried out by the Ph.D. program of national interest in Robotics and Intelligent Machines (DRIM).
DRIM brings together all the research and training areas aimed at studying, developing, and constructing innovative robotic systems and intelligent machines. The objective is to form a large community of students who develop their research themes in a shared context, integrated on a geographic, multidisciplinary, and interdisciplinary scale.
The strategic objective is to pave the way to the largest doctoral school in the world in these cultural areas, which capitalizes on the leadership of Italian research at an international level, projecting it into the future and enabling technology transfer to companies by promoting the recruitment of students trained in innovation.
To share the research skills and competencies distributed throughout the territory, reaching a critical mass never experienced at an international level, DRIM envisages the establishment of a consortium between universities and highly qualified research institutions. Accordingly, the Host Institutions where students carry out their research activity will be coordinated by one Host Institution chosen as the Administrative Headquarters of the Ph.D. program.
