Franco Bontempi, Coordinatore scientifico Professor Bontempi is full Professor of Structural Analysis and Design in the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Sapienza University of Rome since 2000. He is currently responsible for the courses of Structural Analysis and Design, Steel Structures, Structural Fire Design. His main research interests are the structural analysis and performance based design of high-rise buildings and bridges, leading a research group among the most active in the field of numerical analysis and structural modeling. He was part of the scientific committees for the new Italian Building Code (Norme Tecniche delle Costruzioni) and for the Messina Strait Bridge. He was also involved in consulting activity on Offshore Wind Turbines and high-rise buildings. He serves frequently as special expert for forensic engineering hearings, regarding structural collapses. He is also member of the board of directors of the Science and Technology Research Center for Cultural Heritage Conservation (CISTeC - Centro di Ricerca di Scienza e Tecnica per la Conservazione del Patrimonio Storico-Architettonico). 5. People5/35 5/61 5/61Ing. Chiara Crosti, Co-founder & CEO Chiara Crosti received her bachelor and master degree in Civil Engineering from Sapienza University of Rome and a Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from the same school in 2011. She collaborated actively in various national and international projects. In particular, during the Ph.D. she worked for almost two years at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, USA). Her expertise is in the numerical modeling and the assessment of the structural safety of structures and bridges. She also deals with the design and rehabilitation of structures under fire. She was involved as consultant in forensic engineering disputes. Since 2008 she is teaching assistant for the class of Structural Analysis and Design and since 2013 for the class of Structural fire safety in the School of Civil Engineering of Sapienza University of Rome. She also teaches classes for Professional Engineers.Ing. Stefania Arangio, Co-founder & Director Stefania Arangio received a 5-years Laurea degree (equivalent with MEng + MSc) in Civil Engineering from Sapienza University of Rome, and a Ph.D. from the same University in Structural Engineering in 2008. During her Ph.D. she spent several months abroad at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech, USA). Then she had a post-doc position in a project of the Italian Council of Research (CNR) on the structural assessment of urban areas subjected to geological and hydrogeological hazards. During the post-doc she spent some work periods abroad: she was visiting scholar at the City University of New York (USA) and she had a contract with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, USA). Her expertise is in the structural monitoring of buildings and bridges and the structural assessment of the built heritage. She was involved as consultant in forensic engineering disputes. Since 2005 she is teaching assistant for the class of Structural Analysis and Design in the School of Civil Engineering of Sapienza University of Rome. She was also appointed Professor of Precast Structures (2008) in the School of Engineering and Static behavior of the structures (2009) in the School of Architecture Ludovico Quaroni. She co-authored two technical books on steel structures and she teaches classes for Professional Engineers. 6. People6/35 6/61 6/61Ing. Francesco Petrini, Co-founder & Director Francesco Petrini received a 5-years Laurea degree (equivalent with MEng + MSc) in Civil Engineering from Sapienza University of Rome, and a Ph.D. from the same University in Structural Engineering in 2009. Then he had a post-doc position at Sapienza and worked on the Performance-based wind Design of structures and bridges. He worked also as consultant in the field of complex structures. He spent research periods abroad at the Louisiana State University (USA) and in Greece at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). His expertise is in the numerical modeling and the performace-based design of buildings, bridges and special structures subject to wind and seismic actions. Since 2005 he is teaching assistant for the class of Steel structures in the School of Civil Engineering of Sapienza University of Rome. He was also appointed professor of Structural aspects of Engineering (2009) and Structural reliability (2008) in the School of Engineering and Static behavior of the structures (2009) in the School of Architecture Ludovico Quaroni.Konstantinos Gkoumas, Co-founder & Partner Dr Gkoumas holds a 5-year Laurea degree (equivalent with MEng + MSc) in Civil Engineering from the Sapienza University of Rome, and a Ph.D. from the same University in Transportation and Infrastructures (with a Thesis on operational research). Dr Gkoumas is currently a research associate at the Sapienza University of Rome (ITALY). He is a registered engineer in Italy (Rome) and Greece since 2004. He has a professional activity of three years at the Co.Re. Ingegneria (2005-2007). After obtaining his Ph.D. he conducted research on different topics of public transport and structural robustness. Dr Gkoumas spent research periods abroad at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA), at the Lehigh University (USA) and the Harbin Institute of Technology (PRC). In 2009 he won a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD - Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) and he spent a research period at the Institute for Numerical and Applied Mathematics of the University of Goettingen (DE). The current field of research of Dr Gkoumas is Energy Harvesting (EH), focusing on the numerical modeling and on innovative and practical aspects . 7. 7/35 7/61 7/61UNIVERSITY OF PAVIA Prof. S.
