Cooperation between Italy and Japan in consolidating in the development of new joint advanced robotics projects, particularly humanoid, and in promoting the exchange of teachers and researchers. A new agreement has been signed in Tokyo between the Institute of BioRobotics of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna di Pisa and Waseda University, one of Japan's most prestigious universities in terms of the quality of its research. The agreement, which was signed in the presence of Domenico Giorgi, Italian Ambassador to Japan, aims in particular to strengthen links between the students, teachers and researchers of the two institutions. The Italian delegation that travelled to Tokyo, where it will also hold seminars and lessons, includes Cecilia Laschi, considered to be one of the scientists who has contributed the most to the development of "soft" robotics. One of the aims that the Institute of BioRobotics of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna wants to achieve through this collaboration relates to its doctorate students, to whom it intends to offer the opportunity to complete their training at the Waseda University. Another important aspect is the research partnership in humanoid robotics. The synergy, which has been established for some time, aims to create new research and training opportunities doctorate students from both institutions. Paolo Dario and Atsuo Takanishi, respectively director of the Institute of BioRobotics of Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and the representative of "The Humanoid Robotics Institute and the Comprehensive Research Organization" of Waseda University, renewed the collaboration, opening a new chapter in the relationship between the two training and research organisations.
