Free University of Bozen-Bolzano


Despite its recent foundation, unibz in the past few years has already established itself as an important research institution, both in Italy and abroad.


If, on one hand, many of our research projects tackle global environmental, economic, social or technology topics, on the other hand many are deeply rooted in our region. They address the current issues of sustainable use of resources, socio-economic development and lifelong learning within the Alps. The main features of our research are interdisciplinary collaboration and interaction with local companies.

Six PhD programmes help us train a new generation of researchers. Projects with external sources of funding are supported by regional, national and international institutions.

Main Research Areas
