University of  L’Aquila

Logo_Universita_degli_Studi_dellAquila-240x300The University of L’Aquila dates back to the XV century, and currently comprises 25.000 students and 45 different first degree courses, ranging from Arts to Physics and Engineering, and 22 advanced degrees in all the fields of modern advanced studies. In a recent independent study, it was ranked among the best Italian Universities for its ability to attract private funds, and, as far as the students in the field of physics is concerned, three of the six ERC Starting Grants awarded by Italy in 2007 were assigned to former PhD students of L’Aquila. Research is coordinated by 19 different departments, two National Centers of Excellence established by the Italian Ministry for Research (the DEmbedded Controllers, Wireless Interconnect and Systems-on-chip (DEWS) Center of Excellence, and the Center of Excellence for Remote Sensing Techniques and Numerical Modeling for the Forecast of Severe Weather Events (Tecniche di TElerilevamento e Modellistica Numerica per la Previsione di Eventi Meteo Severi: CETEMPS)) and three Centers of Medical Research. Due to the geographical location in the center of the Italian peninsula, the scientific research is developed cooperatively with universities such as those established in Rome, Florence, Naples, Bologna, Padua and Milan. It hosts a large community of scientists, ranging from particle physicists (Gran Sasso National Laboratory, underground facility for the study of passive particles of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics) to physicists of condensed matter, a part of which has given rise to a National Laboratory within the National Research Council (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche: CNR). In optics and photonics, the University has a long tradition shared by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information (DIEI) and the Department of Physics, recently fortified by a Center for Electronic Microscopy. The DIEI (Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica e dell’Informazione) hosts the research in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the Faculty of Engineering. Research is promoted in a multidisciplinary environment through workshops, laboratories, scholarships for post-doctoral studies, financial support for technical training and scientific dissemination. The University also holds a PhD program, and the degree and post-degree students represent integral part of research initiatives. The DIEI is supported in part by funds from the University, and partly through national and international collaborations, research projects, and programs for industrial R&D. It has 50 permanent research members and 20 temporary employees, and it is one of the largest departments of the University of L’Aquila. It possesses an excellent experience in basic research. Its scientific production covers a wide range of key sectors with a strong multidisciplinary vocation, with activities ranging from traditional controls, telecommunications and informatics, to pioneering initiatives in economics, mathematics, physics, biology, electrical technology, electronics and automation.

The University of L’Aquila is Partner of RadioLabs since 2005.

University of Roma Tre 

Logo_Roma_TreThe University of Rome “Roma Tre” has been founded in 1992, and it is the “youngest” university of Rome, currently counting forty thousand students.
It comprises 8 faculties and 29 departments that offer a total of 30 first degree courses, 45 advaced degree courses, 66 Masters, 9 improvers course, 16 Doctorates, 5 PhD schools and 2 schools of specialization.
In the implementation of new courses, defined according to the needs of a labor market with European and international dimension, “Roma Tre” is fully engaged in offering training to achieve high levels of skills and research preparation
In the University “Roma Tre” it has been introduced a service quality control, as well a service of monitoring and managing education, which ensures efficiency and promotes the motivation of those who work and study in the Uinversity.
“Roma Tre” is a vital lever of urban development of the capital, and an active center of cultural production with an international dimension; it devotes energy and resources in designing and organizing conferences and seminars, which represents occasions for reflections and for meetings with leading personalities in the field of culture, research, social and political context.

The Scientific Research, along with the training, holds a fundamental function of the University, and represents the necessary premise for teaching. It is the engine of critical knowledge, creativity, innovation, competitiveness and quality in teaching activities.
“Roma Tre” promotes research activities by supporting the departments with actions aimed at the development of basic research and laboratories, the promotion of international knowledge sharing, the recruitment of young people to consolidate with co-financing researchers recruitment, the strengthening of research allowances, PhD Schools international relations.
Autonomy’s planning and management of departments is a prerequisite for the effectiveness of these activities. The Departments, constituted on a disciplinary basis, receive an annual contribution from the University which covers the funding for scientific research, research allowances, and for all the other initiatives linked to research, and autonomously plan, manage, and finance researches, by defining their own development and choosing how to select the research activities to be funded. The approach based on the worthness of the performed research is emerging as an important complementary element in the autonomous planning.

The University has promoted a project for an integrated Research Registry office, with the aim of providing an informatic tool for documenting and monitoring the research activities, and for transferring the results of “Roma Tre”.

The University’s interest in technology transfer and in the creation of new businesses, in particular spin-off, is rapidly increasing as part of the actions aimed at expanding and strengthening the interactions with the already existing production system. “Roma Tre” supports their departments and research groups in the promotion, participation and management of projects in public-private partnership, aimed at establishing the conditions and the government value chain, starting from the creation of know-how till its practical use, in order to promote competitiveness and innovation based on knowledge. The target areas are representative of the regional context, and regard areas traditionally linked to innovation, such as ICT, audiovisual-multimedia, aerospace, microelectronics, biotechnology, environment and territory, but also cultural heritage and public administration.

The University of Rome “Roma Tre” is Partner of Radiolabs since 2006.
