About
Lorenzo De Michieli is Head of the Rehab Technology Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), an Innovation Lab co-funded by INAIL to develop new prostheses, exoskeletons and rehabilitation devices of high market potential in the healthcare sector. He received a M.S. in Physics in 1999, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering (Humanoid Robotics) from the University of Genoa, Italy. He also accomplished an extensive training on innovation management both in Italy at Jacobacci & Partners (Turin, IT) and abroad at the European Patent Office (The Hague, NL) and the Bergen Teknologioverføring (Bergen, N). From 2014 to 2019 he was contract Professor at the University of Genoa - Faculty of Economics - in Collaborative Innovation and Technology Transfer. He is currently Board member of Movendo Technology, one of the most promising biomedical companies in Italy. He was Board member of the Fondazione Ricerca & Imprenditorialità, a non-profit organization funded by major Italian banks, large industries and top research institutes to support high-tech startup companies (2011-2020), and member of the Governing Board for Technology Transfer at the Italian Institute of Astrophysics - INAF (2005-2011). Before joining IIT in 2008, he was technologist at the National Institute for the Physics of Matter (INFM, Italy) from 2002 to 2006, and at the National Research Council (CNR, Italy) from 2006 to 2008, gaining an extensive experience in developing industrial alliances and managing competitive industrial R&D projects. Skills: robotics, rehabilitation robotics, rehabilitation devices, innovation management, technology transfer, intellectual property rights.
