The University of Milano-Bicocca is extremely active in research in cooperation with different consortia, and with public and private third parties from outside the University. In 2015, the University of Milano – Bicocca classified 24th in the world ranking “Times Higher Education 100 under 50” that is a ranking of the top 100 universities under 50 years old, 1st in Italy.
Moreover, in 2013 University of Milano-Bicocca enters for the first time in the QS World University Rankings, the yearly classification of the best universities in the world that studies the quality of the research, the occupational rate of graduates, internationalization and didactics. In the Italian system ranking, managed by ANVUR, Bicocca has obtained a good evaluation in the research sector thanks to the Italian Research Evaluation Exercise “VQR 2004 -2010”, ranking in the first positions in eight areas.
The University of Milano – Bicocca has a huge experience in managing National, International and European projects. Just to exemplify, in the FP7 Bicocca won 66 projects in the four different Programs and managing 6 of them (one of these was in the ICT programme). It has experience also in other relevant European programs linked to ICT, such as ENIAC and AAL. It is actively participating also in the new frame program Horizon 2020 and it obtained the first fundings (5 MSCA: 3 MSCA-ETN (2 coordinator) and 2 MSCA-RISE). Others are in the negotiation phase.
Moreover, UniMiB fosters and develops the international dimension of studies, research and didactics through: European programs of High Training (Lifelong Learning Program - LLP, Erasmus Plus, EXTRA); International Cooperation Agreements; Internationalization of the University system (UniMiB is a member of the European University Association). UniMiB has 69 active agreements with Universities and Research Centers in all over the world (16 EU, 15 in America – incl. USA and Canada - and 38 outside EU – including China, Japan, Australia, India).
The annual turnover of UNIMIB by external research activities is EUR 20,000,000 resulting from granted projects, research services provided to industries, IPR licensing.

University of Milan-Bicocca is highly-rated in different ranking analysis
University of Milan-Bicocca will develop a design-based methodology for improving low-cost High-Power technology adding high-performance analog, digital and high-voltage functionalities validated by means of basic building blocks. This design methodology will be applied to the development of a high-performance DC-DC converter for LED lightning driver application. This design case has been selected since its development by means of the proposed methodology strongly improves the implementation, reduces cost, and increases reliability. In addition, UniMiB will lead the Dissemination activity.
The expertise in advanced IC design will be merged with the automatic design concept to improve design portability, with the design benchmark of a DC-DC converter.
