Third mission

Sapienza is committed to promoting and fostering the application, valorisation, dissemination, and transfer of knowledge, know-how, and technologies. To this end, in addition to the two main purposes of the University, teaching and research, it develops concrete actions by interacting with other institutions, the productive fabric and society in its various forms and articulations.

These activities, therefore, relate to two main areas:

  • valorisation of research, which includes the management of intellectual and industrial property, academic entrepreneurship and technology brokerage and transfer structures
  • production of public goods, which includes the management of cultural goods, health protection, continuing education and public engagement, focusing on cultural activities of public benefit, science dissemination, citizen involvement in research, interaction with the world of education.

With this in mind, Sapienza provides its know-how and high-quality expertise in the various fields of scientific knowledge to contribute to the social, economic and cultural development of contemporary society.

Sapienza for businesses

Sapienza promotes relations with companies through a series of collaboration opportunities related to the use of its patent portfolio, participation in spin-offs and start-ups, creation of proof of concept and attraction of business ideas through acceleration and incubation. Our University also supports the creation of public-private partnerships aimed at joint participation in research competitions and calls for national and European funding.

Sapienza for young people

Sapienza contributes to the promotion of scientific and civic education by encouraging the involvement of schools through the implementation of numerous paths for transversal skills and orientation, guided tours of museums and libraries, as well as events and seminars on the dissemination of science aimed at young people and children, orientation activities for graduates and career services for graduates.

Sapienza for conscious citizenship

Sapienza contributes to the development of the territory and society by promoting public engagement, social inclusion, active citizenship, health protection, continuous training and professional development. It also contributes to enriching the city's cultural offerings by organising artistic, musical and theatrical events, scientific education projects and public service events and seminars.
