Webinar | Doing Research in Knowledge-based Societies by Emeritus Professor F Maloberti


Circuits and Systems Society

We live in knowledge societies, which are societies where the primary production resource is knowledge. The change of nature also involves changes in the institutions that create knowledge: Universities and Research centres. The increased relevance of knowledge values much more the institutions but, at the same time, creates new obligations and challenges. The relationship with advanced industries, especially those in the electronics area, becomes crucial, and the so-called R&D activity must be considered appropriately.

The presentation discusses the above topics in a non-exhaustive manner just for providing elements of reflections to researchers and administrators.


Franco Maloberti received the Laurea Degree in Physics (Summa cum Laude) from the University of Parma, Italy, 1968, and the Doctorate Honoris Causa degree in Electronics from Inaoe, Puebla, Mexico in 1996. He was a Microelectronics Professor at the University of Pavia, Italy, the TI/J. Kilby Analog Engineering Chair Professor at the Texas A&M University, and the Distinguished Microelectronic Chair Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas. Currently, he is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Pavia, Italy.

Professor Maloberti has more than 600 IEEE publications, ten books and holds 38 patents. He was President of the IEEE CASS and the IEEE Sensor Council. He also served the IEEE in numerous responsibility positions. He received the 1999 IEEE CAS Society Meritorious Service Award, the 2000 CAS Society Golden Jubilee Medal, and the IEEE Millenium Medal. He received the 1996 IEE Fleming Premium, the ESSCIRC 2007 Best Paper Award, and the IEEJ Workshop 2007 and 2010 Best Paper Award. He received the IEEE CAS Society 2013 Mac Van Valkenburg Award. He is a Life Fellow of IEEE.
