Despite its recent foundation, unibz in the past few years has already established itself as an important research institution, both in Italy and abroad.
If, on one hand, many of our research projects tackle global environmental, economic, social or technology topics, on the other hand many are deeply rooted in our region. They address the current issues of sustainable use of resources, socio-economic development and lifelong learning within the Alps. The main features of our research are interdisciplinary collaboration and interaction with local companies.
Seven PhD programmes help us train a new generation of researchers. Projects with external sources of funding are supported by regional, national and international institutions.
unibz is taking part in various research projects funded by the European Union such as ERDF (EFRE-FESR), Horizon, Interreg Italia-Österreich and Life.
The Research Committee advises the university on all matters related to research.
boris is the research information system of unibz.
bu,press , publisher of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano founded in 2005, assists unibz researchers with their publishing activities to make the research findings accessible to an international public.
Academia is a popular online science magazine produced by EURAC and unibz. Published in three languages (German, Italian, English), Academia reports comprehensively on the research of the two institutions. Reports and interviews cover current science topics from around Europe, and informative photo stories and illustrations help to make even the most complex subjects interesting and easy to understand.
