Currently Involving Projects
The project NOTAE represents the first attempt to investigate the presence of graphic symbols in documentary records as a historical phenomenon from Late Antiquity to early medieval Europe. Graphic symbols are meant here as graphic signs (including alphabetical ones) drawn as a visual unit in a written text and representing something other than a word of that text.

 Past Projects
VOICE is a virtual business incubator for startups. Its uniqueness is that it is globally accessible around the clock, open to anyone with an interesting idea, unlimited in space, open and practically boundless in providing services, information and practical guidance, in contrast to the traditional - physical - incubators.
TOBI is a large European integrated project which will develop practical technology for brain-computer interaction (BCI) that will improve the quality of life of disabled people and the effectiveness of rehabilitation.
