The Department of Innovation and Information Engineering (DIIE) welcomes faculty members and students highly interested in innovative research and development activities in the realm of energetics, plant engineering, automotive and control systems, carbon footprint, carbon design and soil fertility.
The Department also focuses on performance and quality in IT systems, software engineering, data mining, semantic technologies, fixed and mobile telecommunications.
The Department's mission is to synergize science and key enabling technologies, fostering innovation and strengthening industrial capacities and business perspectives. The goal is to combine science with diverse technologies and disciplines, connecting research markets and contributing with important advancements in the field.
The Department engages in solving societal challenges and fostering crosscutting aspects, intensely working with public-private partnerships (PPPs).

Research Areas and Objectives

The DIIE main research areas focus on:

  • Societal (Health, Wellbeing and Ageing well; Democratic change; Secure Clean and Efficient Energy; Carbon design; Resource and Process efficiency; Raw materials)
  • Industrial (Advanced manufacturing and processing; Information and Communication Technologies)
  • Developing key enabling technologies of advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, information and communication technology and contributing to solve societal challenges represent the main objectives of DIIE Department.

As concerns, previous experiences in Research Projects, members of DIIE Department have been involved in national and international research projects, such as: PRIN, FIRB, FP7 and H2020 (RIA/IA/SME).
The Department established collaborations with several industries and research centers, such as: Ferrari, Ahlstrom, FIAT Research Centre, General Electric.
