A VOID ONLY PRECEDES A FALL?

THE BEAUTY OF EMBRACING NEW PERSPECTIVES

Third Mission

As well as its two main missions of education and research, the University pursues a third mission, the promoting the direct application and use of knowledge to contribute to the social, cultural, and economic development of civil society. To do this UNINT endeavours to create direct links with the territory and all its parts.

UNINT sees “Public Engagement” as the whole range of non-profit educational, cultural, and developmental activities in society, and to this end promotes the following activities:

  • Publication of work by the academic staff at national and international level;
  • Participation of the academic staff in radio and television programmes at national and international level;
  • Active participation in public meetings organised by third parties (e.g. science cafés, festivals, scientific fairs, etc.);
  • Organisation of public events (e.g. Researchers’ Nights, Open Days);
  • Communication-oriented training days (for technical, administrative, and academic staff);
  • Publications (printed and digital) intended for other addressees (e.g. university magazine);
  • Interactive and public web-sites and blogs;
  • Access to museums, hospitals, sport facilities, libraries, theatres, and historical university buildings;
  • Organisation of concerts, exhibitions and other leisure activities open to the community;
  • Participation in developing programmes of public interest (policy-making);
  • Participation on committees setting technical standards and norms;
  • Health protection initiatives (e.g. information and prevention days;
  • Guidance and interactive initiatives for secondary schools;
  • Initiatives in collaboration with third parties to promote urban development projects or territorial enhancement;
  • Public initiatives for children and young people;
  • Initiatives of participative democracy (es. consensus conferences, citizen panel).
