Third Mission organization and governance
Among the objectives of the University Strategic Plan, of Departmental Three-Year Plans, and at the heart of the Third Mission, are enhancing our research products and know-how, developing innovation initiatives, promoting cultural, sporting and artistic activities.
The Deputy Rectors contribute to the governance of Third Mission activities within their respective mandates: research and innovation, Third Mission, impact and cultural activities. The network of departmental delegates for the Third Mission cooperates with the Deputy Rectors, ensuring coordination between University and departmental activities, and overseeing monitoring and impact assessment processes.
Professor Marina Carini, who teaches Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, is Deputy Rector for the Third Mission, Cultural Activities and Social Impact.
Full Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, she is Deputy Head of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, as well as President of the Intradivisional Group of Pharmaceutical Analysis of the Pharmaceutical Chemistry Division (Italian Society of Chemistry) and Arbitrator of the Italian Society of Cosmetic Sciences.
Professor Maria Pia Abbracchio, who teaches Pharmacology and specialises in multiple sclerosis treatment, was appointed Vice-Rector and Deputy Rector for Research and Innovation by Rector Elio Franzini.
Full Professor of Pharmacology at the University of Milan since 2002, Maria Pia Abbracchio leads a research group of 12 scientists at the same University. She is a member of the Interdepartmental Academic Board of the degree programme in Pharmacy and of the Academic Board of the PhD programme in Experimental and Clinical Pharmacological Sciences.

The monitoring process was developed with the support of the Innovation and Knowledge Enhancement Division which, among others, assists University governing bodies and supports faculty members at all stages and in all organizational and administrative aspects. Moreover, Third Mission activities are supported by the UNIMI Foundation, within the framework of innovation and knowledge transfer programmes.
The monitoring process currently unfolds on several levels based on guidelines and surveys inspired by the Guidelines for Third mission and Social Impact Reporting (2015-2017) issued by ANVUR in November 2018. Third Mission activities at the University and its 33 departments were monitored for the 2015-19 period.
Furthermore, in line with the 2020-22 departmental planning cycle, a further periodic monitoring system of Third Mission activities and their impact was launched, which is integrated with the Strategic Plan and the Departmental Three-year Plans.
The expertise of our academic community is given visibility through the Expertise & Skills platform. With a view to the next University Research Assessment (VQR), we are developing case studies on the economic, cultural and social impact of our activities.
Per le attività di Terza Missione il bando VQR richiede che l’Università degli Studi di Milano, strutturata in 33 Dipartimenti, presenti 17 casi di studio.
La DIVCO, allo scopo di selezionare i casi di studio da presentare in risposta al bando VQR, ha chiesto due casi di studio a ciascuno dei 33 Dipartimenti di Unimi, redatti sullo schema previsto dallo stesso bando VQR.
Al di là della selezione per il bando VQR, tutte le proposte avanzate dai Dipartimenti verranno valorizzate attraverso diverse modalità comunicative.
