IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca (  is an international Graduate School and Institute of Technology that strives to reach the fusion of theoretical comprehension and practical relevance. The following goals are at the core of IMT's mission statement:

                    to establish itself as a research center that promotes cutting-edge research in key areas, structuring its Ph.D. Programs in close connection with research activity;

These objectives are met by means of the fundamental principles (the IMT Policy) adapted by the governing bodies of the Institute.

Within the IMT Graduate School, the integration between research and education is designed around two broad multidisciplinary research areas which, while stemming from the fundamental concept of "The Sciences of the Artificial" (Herbert A. Simon), sustain the School’s PhD programs.

As an Institute for Advanced Studies, IMT is characterized by its mission to reach the international research frontier and to contribute to push it ahead, concentrating its activities within a limited number of key areas. Moreover, the Institute relies upon an extensive network of scholars and on a variety of contractual solutions to attract a persistent flow of visitors, active in research, teaching, and supervision.

IMT’s identity as an Institute of Technology is defined by the aim of integrating relevance and excellence in research. Against this background, IMT has decided to adopt an innovative organizational model for its activities, which will evolve around a platform called the IMTLAB.
