* Research projects, normally ranging from one to four years, offer the opportunity for deep investigation of large-scale research issues in a mid- to long-term perspective, and they include both senior researchers and academic/industrial PhD students working closely with public and private partners.
* Pilot projects, in the form of student projects or Master Thesis work, normally range from six months to a year, and offer low-risk exploration of a specific topic of interest, potentially ending in the definition of a large-scale research project or programme. We provide academic supervision and examination, while public/private partners provide intriguing problem contexts as well as guidance within the specific application domain.
