The University of Padova fosters top-quality research activities and actors in all scientific areas, increasingly attracting public and private funding. 5.2% of Italian public funding for scientific projects of national importance are awarded to researchers at the University of Padova, whereas European funds for research projects at Padova have soared by 40% over the last three years. 28 projects are funded by the European Research Council (ERC). These are ground-breaking research projects, led by excellent scientists who chose Padova to carry out their outstanding research activities.
The university research is deeply connected with its territory, as witnessed by the high number of ongoing contracts with public and private bodies for experimental activities. Commercial research services alone account for 32% of departments’ income. A particular effort is being made to enhance cooperation between university research groups and the industry, with special emphasis on SMEs in North-East Italy. On top of that, a mention is worth to the almost 50 spin-off companies established within the University of Padova and supported by its start-up incubator.
