Policies and principles
The University’s strategic framework reflects a deep commitment to promoting scientific research and its social impact, which involves an open and continuous process of communication, collaboration and exchange between itself and society, governmental institutions, funding bodies, and the world of business and services.
The University aims in particular at:
- increasing its capacity to attract talented researchers from abroad and in all scientific areas
- supporting the modernization of its laboratories by means of long-term investments in the development of large, technologically advanced infrastructure
- strengthening the University’s main research actors and their capacity to best reflect the University’s strategic objectives.
The University organises its activities according to the following precepts:
- responsible research and innovation (RRI)
- open science
Together with LERU and the international scientific community, it promotes basic research within European universities and contributes to both the development and the updating of research principles and standards.
Following the principles that lead to responsible research and innovation means involving society in the processes that support scientific production and that orient innovation toward the advancement of shared values.
The University adheres to and supports the principles of open science, a global movement created to render processes of production, validation, dissemination and evaluation of science transparent.
The State University is the only Italian member of LERU (League of European Research Universities), the association of university bodies for the promotion of basic research within European research universities.
