Involved in applied research at both national and international level for more than forty years, the FBK today has more than 350 researchers, mainly carrying out research in areas related to information technology, materials and microsystems, Italian-German historical studies and religious science. Thanks to an extensive network of alliances and collaborative agreements, the FBK also operates in the fields of theoretical nuclear physics, mathematical science, networks and telecommunications and social science (research to evaluate public policy). Projects underway include a project dedicated to silicon photomultipliers, which can be used in medical diagnosis systems such as PET scanners and in experiments in the field of physics, such as those carried out at CERN in Geneva, and a project dedicated to e-inclusion, namely the study and development of communication services directed at the elderly.
