Fabio Filicori obtained his degree in Electronic Engineering
from the University of Bologna in 1974. In the same year he began
working at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informatica e
Sistemistica of the University of Bologna, first as a Research
Assistant and later as an Associate Professor of Applied
In 1990 he became Full Professor of Applied Electronics at the
University of Perugia.
In 1991 he was transferrred to the Faculty of Engineering of the
University of Ferrara, where he was Responsible for the Degree
Course in Electronic Engineering up to 1995.
At present he is Full Professor of Electronics at the University of
During his academic career he has held courses in Electronic
circuit design, Applied Electronics, Industrial Electronics,
Electronics for Telecommunications and Electronics for Automation.
He has been Coordinator of the Doctorate Research Course in
Electronics, Computer Science and Telecommunications.
He has been a member of the Scientific Research Committee and
of the Programming Committee of the Faculty of
Engineering of the University of Bologna.
He has been the national coordinator for the Strategic Project
"Mathematical Models and Methods for Engineering" of the C.N.R
(National Research Council) and national coordinator of the
research projects "Modelli di rumore non lineari e progettazione di
oscillatori a basso rumore di fase per sistemi di telecomunicazioni
ad alte prestazioni" and "Modelli non lineari e metodi di progetto
per sistemi radio integrati a basso rumore ed elevata dinamica"
financed by the MIUR (Ministry of Education).
He has taken part in the work group of the MIUR for the
evaluation of research projects at a national level in the field of
electronics. For the MIUR he has also worked as reviewer of various
industrial research projects in the field of electronic circuits
He has been referee of research projects for the USA National
In October 2007 he became a member of the Work Group "Tecnologie
Materiali e Microgravita' "; he has also been a member
of the Technological Commission of the Italian Space Agency.
He has been a member of the Editorial Board of the journal IEEE
Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques and is a member of
the Technical Program Committee of the EUMIC Symposium in the
framework of the European Microwave Week.
He has been work-package leader within the European Network of
Excellence TARGET, aimed at the design of power amplifiers for
applications in the field of terrestrial and space radio
He has been scientific coordinator of various research projects
for the University of Bologna, financed by ESA, ASI and by various
industrial research laboratories (e.g. Magneti Marelli, Dassault
Electronique, Thales Alenia Space, etc..).
He is the author or co-author of about 200 papers published in
journals or international conference proceedings.
His research activities have mainly concerned circuit design
techniques for applications in the field of telecommunications and
industrial automation, the modelling of electronic devices and
systems, instrumentation and measurement techniques for the
characterization and performance evaluation of electron devices and
