SHORT BIO

Roberto Bozzano was born in Genoa on September 8, 1968, he graduated in Electronic Engineering at the University of Genoa in July 1993 and since 1996 he has been working at the National Research Council, where he currently holds the position of head of the research theme ” Development of methods for monitoring the marine environment from vessels and in-situ platforms “of the Department of Earth and Environment.
His research concerns the theoretical and experimental technologies for environmental monitoring with particular reference to marine-maritime and these researches are realized through the study of complex autonomous systems and multisensory for collecting weather data from marine systems or intelligent platforms.
In particular, the work on the design and implementation of complex measurement systems and their multifunctional remote management, the development of acoustic methods for the measurement of environmental parameters, the study of the physical processes of energy trade-sea interface, the simulation of the behavior of moored floating platforms and, in general, the development of systems for data acquisition and signal processing platform architectures and embedded real-time.
The scientific activity is part of the institutional activities of the research involved for years in organizing and developing the buoy offshore meteo-oceanographic called “ODAS Italy 1” and its instrumentation, and more generally in the research and development of innovative methods for monitoring the marine environment. In this context, has worked to gain recognition for the Marine Observation based on the buoy “ODAS Italy 1” as a point of reference for the operational oceanography national ensuring, above all, quality and continuity of the data collected.
The project activity concerns initiatives that arise at the border of the state of the art in the field of marine technology, oceanography applied such, projects GMES / Copernicus and FP7 ongoing MyOCEAN2, PERSEUS and FixO3.
It ‘currently responsible for the Institute in research involved in the project RITMARE flag and the National Program for Research in Antarctica (PNRA).
His work as a transfer of research results in the field of marine technology and marine and industrial automation led to his involvement in numerous technology transfer projects including a project within the research program of the European Social Fund (ERDF ) for the region Liguria.
The results are reported in dozens of scientific publications in journals, books and conferences, both national and international.
