         Robotics R&D Track

         June 23-26, 2016, Pisa, ITALY
         Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna

(Fast?) Connecting R&D is a multifaceted and extremely hot 
topic for both practitioners and academics working in the 
broad field of innovation management. Our aim is to 
encourage these two communities to present joint 
contributions at the 2015 R&D Management Conference in 
Pisa in order to better understand the present and future 
scenarios. (Fast?) Connecting R&D broadly refers to the 
huge number of situations, tools, solutions, policies etc. 
in which R&D activities are involved together with other 
kinds of activities, competencies and organisations on a 
global basis, with a significant societal impact.
In addition to several tracks on the domain of R&D this 
will host as keynote speakers, Prof. Gary Pisano 
(Professor of Business Administration Harvard Business 
School) and Dr. Gianfranco Zaccai (Chairman, President & 
Chief Design Officer Continuum LLC) among the others.

As part of the different tracks of this conference we are 
organizing a track focused on Robotics R&D.

R&D in robotics presents challenges due to the mutable and 
multidisciplinary nature of the robotic field that 
combines many aspects of engineering, product design and 
human interaction. Research challenges emerge at the same 
time in single components and in system integration, while 
research management is challenged by a fast paced 
scenario. The large portfolio of European projects in 
robotics is a rich opportunity for discussion and 
investigation on such challenges as seen by research 
institutions and companies. Contributions are welcome 
presenting R&D methodologies for robotics, real case 
studies and practices in the robotic domain.
