An open-source initiative started at IIT with the goal of advancing our knowledge of human cognition by designing, building, and sharing a common cognitive architecture for an embodied artificial system such as the iCub humanoid robot.


The Initiative brings together Principal Investigators of different IIT research lines with the aim of applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to new challenges in the field of Materials Science.


Initiative focuses on non-coding RNAs whose knowledge has experienced the most rapid growth in recent years, thanks to the advent of omic technologies and next-generation sequencing. 

Robotics for a better life

The Initiative takes a multidisciplinary approach to advance research in robotics and translates the Robotics RD objective of making robots self-aware, adaptable, and interactive into substantial component technologies.


The Initiative clusters and coordinates the various research activities under new and common Technological Deliverables, which tackle specific sustainability goals of global economical, societal and environmental importance.


An initiative to visualize molecular interactions and electronic processes at nano-interfaces, with the final target to deliver new technologies, which combine efficiency, sustainability, and full integration into everyday life.
