Imamoter is a research Institute of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR). Its headquarter is located in Ferrara and it has a Secondary Unit in Turin, inside the premises of the CNR Research Area.

Imamoter established on 15 June 2002. It results from the incorporation of two formerly existing CNR Institutes: the Institute for Earth-Moving Machinery and Off-Road Vehicles (CEMOTER) and the Institute for Agricultural Mechanization (IMA).

Imamoter aims at being an excellence centre for advancing, fostering, promoting and disseminating knowledge and technologies for design, production and use of agricultural and construction equipment. Sustainable development, energy efficiency and safety underpin the research actions, bridging Key Enabling Technologies with industrial application in: power transmission, unstructured robotics, man-machine interfaces, advanced materials, physical agents, interaction of machinery with environment.

Education and training are among the targets of the Institute. Researchers run several courses at the Universities of Turin and Ferrara, Post Graduate Masters and several industrial courses in the field of fluid power technology, material science, acoustics and safety of agricultural and earthmoving machines.

IMAMOTER is organizer of the exhibition "Nanoworld (Nanomondo), journey into the world up to -9", being held at the Natural History Museum (Museo Civico di Storia Naturale) of Ferrara (Italy) from October 27, 2018 to June 16, 2019.
