Research for Global Challenges

Ca’ Foscari is highly committed in achieving excellence in research, developing international partnerships and funding promising researchers. Our Research Institutes will enforce this engagement by promoting an interdisciplinary approach to research.

New pharmaceutical compounds to treat serious diseases

Scientists from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédéralede Lausanne (EPFL), the University of Padova and the Ca' Foscari Department of Molecular Sciences and Nanosystems have developed a new way of rapidly producing and isolating thousands of macrocyclic compounds, a family of molecules that are of great interest to the pharmaceutical industry.

Dancing Museums: a new way to enjoy art through dance

Ca' Foscari's contribution to the Dancing Museums project, curated by Susanne Franco, aims to explore the new ways of enjoying art through dance and performance, as well as new approaches  of museology and art management towards the active engagement of an increasingly varied and large audience.
