Dealing with a mission oriented research: UNIMORE experience - Donata Franzi (UNIMORE)

Often small systems are able to face big challenges in a smarter way than larger organization. Processes aimed at bringing out knowledge and skills may be easily promoted in order to answer future challenges.

UNIMORE, a networked campus located in the Emilia Romagna Region, is an academic community characterized by a wide range of expertise in fields spanning from medicine to climate change and social sciences and humanities.

Such a background knowledge allows to identify and evaluate:

  • strategies directed at solving concrete societal and/or technological challenges;
  • systemic approach to industrial and innovation strategies;
  • interaction methods between multiple actors along the value chain of research and innovation.

This is the approach to the missions outlined in Mazzucato report (M. Mazzucato 2017) adopted by UNIMORE interdisciplinary group. The presentation explains how UNIMORE acquired such approach along five main challenges.
