Pilot Projects

This page is intended to collect examples of technological demonstrators, tested in the clinical field of support for the response to Covid-19, or in the research laboratories of developers, which can give rise to products with high technological readiness and which can be made available for generalized use in the medium term.

The projects are classified based on their application field, geographical region, Technology Readiness Level (TRL), development status and category, e.g. research or commercial project.

It is possible to search the database by filtering the results according to one of the categories listed above. For example, pilot projects can be filtered by geographic origin or application field.

If you want to report a project, at the bottom of the page you will find instructions.

Elementary statistics of the collected data are also reported about the distribution of new robotic technologies for each category.

Let us know about your project

The information on this page is constantly updated. To propose changes or additions, send an email to: francesca.negrello@iit.it , with the subject “Proposal for integration on the IRIM page AGAINST COVID-19”. 
In the text of the email please report a simple, wide audience-oriented description of the project and its applicability in the fight against COVID-19 (max 60 words). The content should be classified following the keywords proposed in the table below. Please, make sure to include a high resolution picture and the link to the project website. Additional links to video and other medias are welcome.
