UniTrento only has one degree course of the five included in the disciplinary area of Geology-Biology, that is Biomolecular science and technologies at CIBIO - the Centre for Integrative Biology. Universities must offer courses in at least the 50% of the degree courses included in each disciplinary area for courses to be evaluated, that is why the CIBIO course has not been evaluated.
