About

Lorenzo De Michieli is the 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.
