University of Bologna - Department of management
The University of Bologna (UniBo) has been recognized as the oldest university in the western world, and as the venue where, on 19 June 1999, took place the meeting among ministers of higher education from 29 European countries to sign the Declaration of Bologna, the gateway of the process aiming to harmonize higher education systems across Europe known as the Bologna Process.
Its organization has been shaped, since 1995, in a Multicampus structure, so divided into 11 faculties, 33 research departments as well as 5 operating branches (Bologna, Cesena, Forlì, Ravenna and Rimini), aiming to provide 143 first-level degree courses, 98 specialized degree courses and 9 European specialization courses; post-graduate studies have been organized trough 14 Doctoral Schools, with more than 300 graduate-level programs and approximately 1,800 PhD students. Thus UniBo may be considered as one of the largest in the country as well as ranked among its first top level universities.
The University of Bologna is one of the most proactive Italian universities both in research and technology transfer, at least since 2004: at the national level, the University ranks second for competitive research funding from the Italian Government, whereas, at the European one, it has successfully participated in FP6 with a total of 114 projects (in 14 projects as coordinator) funded by the European Commission in all its specific programmes. In FP7 our University has presented over 1100 projects achieving total financial aid of about 73 million Euros with 228 funded projects - acting as coordinator in 44 of them. For the Theme 8 - “Socioeconomic sciences and Humanities” (SSH) of the Cooperation programme, the University has been involved in 10 projects (in 2 as coordinator).
