Politecnico di Milano

Founded in 1863, Politecnico di Milano is the largest public University focused on architecture, design and engineering in Italy. It is organized across three main campuses in the city of Milano and five additional premises within the Lombardia region.

The research unit at Politecnico di Milano is articulated in two Departments, namely the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The early works of the group on metamaterials have been devoted to 3D periodic structures with exceptionally wide band-gaps. After having filed several patents, the activity is proceeding in the project METAISOLECOMAT, funded by Regione Lombardia and Fondazione Cariplo. In recent times, the group has been working on metamaterials for piezoelectric VEH. Such an activity resulted in the award of the present FET-Proactive project.
