Professore Ordinario





Giulio Rosati received the Laurea degree "magna cum laude" in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Padua, Italy, in 1999 and the Ph.D. degree in Applied Mechanics at the University of Brescia, Italy, in 2003. Associate Professor (since 2006) and Assistant Professor (since 2004) at the School of Engineering of the University of Padua, Italy.
Full Professor of Machine Mechanics, Industrial Robotics and Medical Robotics at the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Padua (since 2018). Coordinator of the Doctoral Program in Industrial Engineering, Associate of: IFToMM Italy, I-RIM (Italian Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines), the Italian Association of Machine Mechanics and the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). He is responsible of the Robotics and Automation Labs of the Department of Industrial Engineering.
He led several research contracts in the field of flexible automated production systems (single-station flexible robotic assembly, mixed-model automated production of customized goods, flexible robotic assembly lines) with major companies such as Luxottica Group SpA, Luxottica Srl, Mitsubishi Electric Europe BV, Fischer Italia Srl, Carraro SpA, Alstom Grid SpA, Grid Solutions SpA, Sierra SpA. His research activity spans from industrial robotics to medical/interactive robotics, machine mechanics and mechanical systems control, and received several national and international awards. He is author or co-author of more than 140 scientific papers published in international journals and international conference proceedings, and 6 patents.
He participated to several National and International Research Projects, among which: two HORIZON2020 projects INCOMESS and IMPETUS (co-investigator); one PRIN Project funded by the Italian Ministry of Research, entitled "Intelligent CAble-driven roBOTs (ICABOT): an adaptive approach to robot design and control" (Principal Investigator); one FIRB Project funded by the Italian Ministry of Research, entitled "Flexible haptic system for rehabilitation" (Research Unit PI). Reviewer of national and international project proposals for: Medical Research Council, MIUR, CNR, Swiss National Science Foundation, Italian-French University, Canadian Foundation for Innovation.
Main scientific collaborations: S.K. Agrawal, Columbia University in the City of New York (New York, NY, USA); D.J. Reinkensmeyer, Univ. of California at Irvine (Irvine, CA, USA); S. Kautz, Medical Univ. South Carolina (Charleston, SC, USA); D. Prattichizzo, Univ. of Siena and IIT.
