She has an active role in the activities related to European Projects and she is co-author of publications in international scientific journals.

Patrizia Fulle is the responsable of the Administrative Office. She has experience also on EU project financial reporting. She received a laurea in Foreign Languages from Univ. Perugia. She joined Scriba in 2006.

Pierpaolo Greco is Senior Application Scientist, in Scriba Nanotecnologie since 2009. He got a PhD in Chemistry (2009) and a Laurea in Environmental (Chemical) Engineering (2005), Univ. of Bologna. His competences are design, fabrication and integration of microfluidics devices and patterns, finite element calculations, development of unconventional lithography, laser prototyping on new materials for organic electronics. He is principal investigator in EU Projects. He authored 12 publications in international scientific journals.

Serena Lanza is responsible for external and commercial relations. She joined Scriba Nanotecnologie in July 2009 where she works on laser scribing, testing on new material and development of new product lines. She is in charge of the participation of Scriba Nanotecnologie to the Emilia Romagna High Technology Network. She has a Laurea in Biology at the University of Genova (1996), where she specialised in preparation techniques of biological samples and structural research with optical and scanning electron and transmission microscopes (SEM, TEM). She is co-author of 7 publications.

Vitaliy Parkula joined Scriba R&D team in September 2015 in the framework of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action iSwitch. He holds Master Degree in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering from University of Algarve (Portugal) and he is attending Laboratorio di Elettronica Organica in University of Modena to pursue research for doctoral thesis under the supervision of Prof. Fabio Biscarini.In Scriba he will be focused on electrical characterization of organic printed transistors fabricated by laser lithography and flexographic printing on flexible polymeric substrates.

Meenu Selvaraj joined Scriba R&D team in February 2018 in the framework of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action iSwitch. She holds Master Degree in Nanoelectronic Systems from the Technical University of Dresden (Germany). In Scriba she will be focused on the microfabrication of electrodes exhibiting a variety of geometries using several precursors (gold nanoparticles, conductivepolymers or graphene oxide), by means of IR laser printer set-up developed by SCRIBA.

Chiara Taddei joined Scriba team in April 2018 in the framework of MADIA project, for the development of a microfluidic tool for early diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases. She received a Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of Naples “Federico II” (2012) and in 2017 she got a PhD in “Industrial Product and Process Engineering” at the same university and in collaboration with the University of Strasbourg. Her research interest includes the synthesis and characterizations of colloidal photonic crystal and magnetite nanostructure for use in chemical sensor based on fiber optic technology.
