FBK is made up of seven research centre, whose activities and production are available at



The Software Engineering Research Unit (SE) aims at investigating two strategic areas of software development, for which the available technologies are largely unsatisfactory: (1) Requirements engineering; (2) Code analysis and testing. In the first area, the scientific challenges deal with the explicit representation of autonomic behaviors (e.g., those of self-adaptive systems), of the normative constraints and of requirements engineering for distributed software development. In the area of software testing, the challenge is to automate the generation of the test cases, the detection of faults, their localization in the code and the application of counter-measures.
