Our research

Research areas

The activities carried out at the Department involve various fields of research, ranging from environmental sciences to informatics and statistics, but also to technologies for the conservation of cultural heritage.

Our research topics intersect the ones related to the ecological transition and to digital transformation, which today are considered essential to the creation of a new, sustainable development of our society and our economy.

Our research — which is often interdisciplinary in its approach — is developed also thanks to collaborations with public institutions and local businesses, and it is financed by public competitions on a regional, national and European level.
