Our Mission and our Values
We promote knowledge creation, transfer and progress to meet the increasing demand of advanced education and research in our society.
We are a scientific community of a long tradition, made up by professors and researchers; we all work in the broader context of the international scientific community. We are an independent forward-looking community, open to the world and to the future.
We foster study as a key factor for personal development and individual enrichment. Our aim is to guide and encourage students to make the most of their capacities.
We firmly believe in scientific progress and do our best for its enhancement. We give our contribution for the improvement and welfare of our society, through the diffusion of knowledge and educational tools.
