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 creates continual opportunities for dialogue with businesses, other institutions and the community through events where academics and the public can exchange knowledge and learn together.
University’s events and initiatives
Kidsuniversity – which aims to convey the pleasure of doing research to children aged eight to thirteen – is where university teachers hold lectures and workshops for primary and secondary school students to stimulate their curiosity and critical thinking. Moreover, school teachers can benefit from qualified training courses and workshops.
On the last Friday of September, throughout Europe, citizens have the opportunity to learn about the latest scientific discoveries and research produced by universities: they can visit research facilities that otherwise wouldn't be open to the public, take part in experiments and simulations. The University of Verona opens its laboratories in the morning to high school students, while on Friday evening the real Researchers’ Night is held, featuring exhibitions, debates, experiments, workshops, and a great final show.
Bringing citizens closer to the world of research through a series of events held in the Osterie (taverns) of Verona, to communicate the outcomes of scientific research in a pleasant and informal context. This is ‘GoToScience’, an event designed with the aim of engaging the general public in learning about the studies currently carried out by researchers or teams of the University of Verona, while sipping a ‘goto’ (glass of wine).
The Museum represents the Computer Science Department's commitment to preserving the memory of the evolution of automatic computation and the machines that characterised it, as well as looking towards the future by sharing historical results in technology research and scientists' lives with the next generations.go to site
