The University provides support for political decision-making, with a view to making the Region more dynamic, liveable and capable of attracting persons from outside, building on the cultural and symbolic traces that we leave in the areas we serve. In the meantime, the University is strengthening its role as an intermediary between global and local knowledge, becoming an essential cross-disciplinary player in order to guarantee the openness of the region and the ability to absorb external changes, as well as to attract the young and experienced workforce who generally represent the principal drivers of economic development and social change.
