I want to study for a PhD in robotics. The research laboratory is a renowned one but the associated university is not. In fact, the laboratory is part of a research institute.

Do you think that would be a desadvantage knowing that I intend to work in the industry after the Phd and not in academics?

The university means something, but the reputation of the professor you will work with means much more. There are some top professors at "modest" universities. I assume that if the research lab is renowned it is for the faculty, not the overall institution of which it is a part.

And many people here seem to want to suggest, mistakenly, that some given university is not "renowned". Not every place is Oxbridge or MIT/Harvard, but plenty of great research comes out of those other "lesser" places. And even the "renowned" places may not excel in every field.
