On Wednesday, June 9, the UNISG presents the research projects of its professors, researchers and PhD students

The Research Day represents a significant moment of reflection for a young university such as Pollenzo – small in size yet strongly characterized by its academic identity and varied wealth of international presences. It’s a moment of sedimentation on the value of research, but, above all, it’s a chance to present the various national and international projects involving teachers and students and the network of partners and associations that collaborate with the university.

The focus of the UNISG Research Day 2021 is the European and Italian research trajectories for 2021-2027 (Horizon Europe and the related Italian National Research Program).

The event is held in English to allow all students and international partners to participate and can be streamed via  Research Day Online.
