Nor is it responsible for the information obtained by users on websites accessible by hyperlink. Any responsibility regarding the content and the use of external websites lies directly with their owners and/or managers.

Cookie Policy

The TERRINet project website uses cookies, which are short strings of text sent from the website server to the visitors’ browsers and are automatically saved on their PCs for easy navigation and maintaining user status information when accessing reserved areas or language preference information.

Cookies created on a visitor’s computer do not contain any personal identification data and do not compromise his or her privacy or security.

What types of cookies are there?

For the purposes of the provision of the Guarantor of privacy No. 229 of May 8, 2014, there are two main categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

1) Technical cookies are used only to “carry out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or as strictly necessary for the provider of a company service, of information explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide the service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code for the Protection of Personal Data).
They may be divided as follows:

  • session cookies, which guarantee normal navigation and use of the website allowing, for example, authentication and access to restricted areas;
  • analytics cookies, similar to technical cookies where used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate, on the number of users and how they visit the website;
  • function cookies, which allow browsing according to a set of selected criteria (for example, language) in order to improve the service rendered.
  • The use of technical cookies, usually installed by the website owner or manager, does not require the consent of the interested party.

2) Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences shown while surfing the net. Given the considerable invasiveness in the privacy of users, the European and Italian legislation requires that users be properly informed about their use and express their valid consent.

The use of profiling cookies requires the user’s consent.

The provision of the Guarantor also distinguishes between website manager cookies and “third party” cookies, according to the different operators who install cookies on the user’s terminal, depending on whether it is the manager of the website that the user is visiting (which may be synthetically indicated as “publisher”) or a different website that installs cookies by means of the initial website (so-called “third-parties”).

In this respect, the publisher is on the one hand the data controller of the cookies installed directly, and on the other, a technical intermediary between third parties and users. The publisher, however, is exempt from the obligation to provide information and obtain consent to their installation for cookies installed by “third parties”.

What cookies does the TERRINet project website use?

The TERRINet project website uses the following types of cookies:

  • session cookies: they are temporary and allow users access to personalized services and to take full advantage of the website’s features.
  • analysis cookies: with the help of Google, they allow the performance of visitors traffic analysis. The information thus gathered has no personal significance as the data are collected and analyzed anonymously. The TERRINet project makes specific use of Google Analytics cookies in the manner shown on this page.
  • social cookies: they are supplied directly from the social media domains that the TERRINet project website hosts through links to official pages, sharing buttons and links. The use of these buttons involves the exchange of information with these websites, therefore the management of the information and how to eliminate it is regulated by them and the School encourages users to consult the respective privacy policies for each of the websites in question.

Coronavirus pandemic

Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,

we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.

However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.

The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.

Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts. 

For any additional questions, please, contact us at info@terrinet.eu

 Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future. 

Stay safe.  

TERRINet team
