The Department’s third mission

The Department of Earth Sciences “Ardito Desio” organises third mission initiatives throughout the year, with a view to contributing to the social, cultural and economic development of our region. 

The Department undertakes to enhance and disseminate knowledge by organising educational and cultural activities for the public. Moreover, it promotes technology transfer in the different areas of geosciences by undertaking commissioned research activities and providing services for third parties, as well as through the creation of spin-offs and the activities of its Valchiavenna Station.
