Third mission coordinators

Coordination of activities

Professors Tiziana Apuani and Patrizia Fumagalli have been entrusted with coordinating the Department’s third mission activities. They chair the Commission for Technology Transfer and the Commission for the Promotion of Geosciences respectively. 
The two commissions were created by two resolutions of the Department’s Council: the Commission for Technology Transfer by resolution no. 97 of 21 January 2019 and the Commission for the Promotion of Geosciences by resolution no. 86 of 7 June 2018. 

The Commission for Technology Transfer promotes and coordinates initiatives pertaining to the transfer of knowledge and technological innovations outside the academic community: spin-offs, services for third parties and intermediation structures for research enhancement. 

The Commission for the Promotion of Geosciences coordinates public engagement initiatives aimed at promoting and disseminating geosciences outside the academic community. Its activities include keeping contacts with schools, institutions and the Order of Geologists, managing the Department’s media visibility and participating in calls for the dissemination, promotion and development of geosciences (National Plan for Science Degrees – PLS, Inner areas, etc.).
