About the Institute
The Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI) is an institute of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). The Institute is located in the CNR Research Area of Pisa. ISTI was constituted in September 2000 as a result of a merger between the Istituto CNUCE (CNUCE-CNR) and the Istituto di Elaborazione dell’Informazione (IEI-CNR). ISTI is named in honor of Alessandro Faedo, former Rector of the University of Pisa and President of CNR, in recognition of his important contribution to the advancement of Information Science and Technologies in the Italian academic communities.
