As described in the University’s QA Policy Politiche di Ateneo per la qualità (currently available only in Italian), the University of Trento:

  • ensures the academic and research staff have the right conditions to be able to conduct their own research
  • promotes a critical analysis of the quality and the impact of all research
  • provides a periodic review of research outcomes and impact
  • invites researchers to respond to expectations and requirements of different sectors of society in terms of the research outcomes and knowledge transfer and thus shape their research projects to meet these demands.

Whether through the dissemination of outputs and the fostering of a scientific community  or through knowledge transfer to the broader society, the promotion of the excellence of its research is a fundamental part of the University of Trento’s Mission.

The University’s Quality Assurance Policy is available in the specific section:

Department/Centre Annual Research Repor (SUA-RD)

The Research Assessment Framework (VQR) aims to evaluate the outcomes of scientific research. The initial project, conducted in 2011, analysed the results of scientific research from 2004 to 2010. The call for the third edition of the exercise was published in 2020 and covers the four-year period 2015-2019.
