The research and development activity of the Institute can be classified into 6 thematic areas:

  1. Networking
  2. Software
  3. Knowledge
  4. High Performance Computing
  5. Visual
  6. Flight and Structural Mechanics

and dynamic interactions take place among different areas, giving rise to fruitful cross-fertilization.

The research staff is organized into 12 laboratories, each having a wide scientific and administrative autonomy; the members of the research staff are normally involved in one or more of these units.
"Curiosity driven" and independent research are also encouraged and supported.

Research Laboratories pursue a well-defined set of strongly related scientific objectives. In addition to research, objectives may also cover technology development and training. The teams include permanent staff, visitors, post-doctoral fellows and doctoral students, with an average number of 10 members per Lab.
