Third missionCompanies, community and public engagement
We believe universities should not restrict themselves to teaching and academic research, but should contribute to supporting technological, economic and social innovation locally and nationally.
Third mission is the term used by all public universities to refer to their direct contributions to civil society.
The University of Verona seeks to provide opportunities for dialogue with businesses, other institutions and the community by regularly hosting events where academics and the public can exchange knowledge and learn together.
Many opportunities for companies that believe in researchCommissioned research, collaborations with spin-offs, consultations and scientific equipment, job seeking
UNIVR supports collaborations with companies by making university resources such as new technologies, research staff and facilities available for use in projects. We connect job seekers and job offers, putting companies in touch with young graduates through internships, work placements and graduate jobs.Read more
Public EngagementThe University and the city
The University organises and promotes meetings, conferences, shows, and events open to the city to disseminate scientific research even among non-experts and thus sharing knowledge, in a constant and fruitful dialogue with the city's institutions and the local cultural and social organisations.
The term ‘public engagement’ is used to describe this set of non-profit activities, aimed at achieving educational, cultural, and societal development, carried out for the benefit of a wide range of audiences other than students, academics, or business representatives.Read more
Verona Minor HierusalemMaking the most of our city, together
The University of Verona, in collaboration with Fondazione Verona Minor Hierusalem, offers a number of training activities for students as part of a project intended to recreate the history of Verona, once known as ‘Minor Hierusalem’ (small Jerusalem) by celebrating its historical churches. Among the activities available are lectures by experts, opportunities for internships (both curricular and for graduates) and dissertation work.
The project also provides young people with the opportunity to volunteer in the field of cultural heritage by receiving tourists and pilgrims in the churches that are part of the project. Each volunteer will be invited to take part in Art History modules, tour guides and lectures that will enable them to know more about Verona, its history and churches.Find out more
