University and research
The topics at the core of the organization’s activities are deepened and developed by the Italiacamp team also through specific academic research paths, publications and university courses.
Italiacams’s path in the field of research is structured through the foundation of monitoring centres and university research centres. Moreover, to date, scientific papers and research papers have been published on the topics of innovation and social impact, conducted by
team members themselves and in collaboration with institutes and universities.
With this in mind, the organisation’s activity is proposed as a connection and contamination between the academic and corporate worlds, a dimension unprecedented in Italy, in which corporate and research objectives are complementary.
