Research & Innovation
UNICAM, availing itself of a tradition acquired throughout more than six hundred years of its history, pursues the objective of spreading, among increasingly diversified users, the high quality of its research and training activities that find opportunities for development even in applied research opportunities that arise, such as territorial instances. In this sense, as part of its mission, UNICAM shows its willingness to present itself as a polycentric university system, capable of promoting, with its very presence, the historical and environmental qualities of the surrounding area, an important factor in connection with the production situation expressed by the economic system of the region of Marche, characterised by a widespread distribution model.
The particularity of UNICAM is the ability to give rise to interdisciplinary connections, starting from the three coexisting fundamental levels of knowledge it comprises (humanistic, scientific-technological and design-related), providing the civil society, and the labour and production market, with the increasingly advanced tools for controlling the complexity factors that characterise the new globalised world. The strategic objective of UNICAM, as reiterated also in the strategic planning document, is the improvement of the quality of research and higher education, in order to confirm and strengthen its role in the European Research Area (ERA) and in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), and to contribute to the economic and social development of the Country and of the Territory of reference (third mission). To this end, in agreement with the University Schools (institutions of higher education and research), specific lines of research have been identified, based on objective strengths, verified over the years through the indicators commonly used by the international scientific community for the evaluation of research, and also by the national project of evaluation of the research quality, conducted by ANVUR (Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of the University and Research Systems). The lines of research are developed within the Schools according to the following scheme, which shows the transversal nature of subjects with respect to the knowledge featured in the University.
