Title of the event Location Date Speaker’s name
The University offers undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as PhD Courses in Agriculture, Engineering, Economics, Medicine and Marine Biology
Ancona is a city and a seaport in the Marche region, as well as its capital city It is located on the central Adriatic coast and it is one of Italy’s most important ports Population – 102,997 inhabitants ANCONA (main campus and administrative offices) Other sites are distributed all over the Marche Region: - Ascoli Piceno - Fermo - Macerata - Pesaro - San Benedetto del Tronto
The oldest Universities of the Marche Region (Urbino, Camerino and Macerata) date back to the Middle Ages After the Second World War there was an attempt to create a unified University with faculties across the whole Region. The attempt wasn’t successful and each University went its own way.
1959 – start-up of the Faculty of Economics and Commerce in Ancona 1969 – start-up of the Faculty of Engineering 1970 – start-up of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery 1986 – start-up of the Faculty of Agriculture 1991 – start-up of the Faculty of Science, with a strong focus on marine science (due to the importance of Ancona as sea-town)
UNIVPM at a glance students 650 administrative staff 5 PhD schools 35 specialization schools (in the field of medicine and surgery) 46 degree courses 12 Departments 700 professors/ researchers

The Faculty was founded in 1986 It is equipped with computer-science classrooms, an experimental farm of around 180 ha, a botanical garden (Selva di Gallignano), a livestock breeding, some greenhouses. The staff collaborates with many foreign Institutions (e.g., Cuba, South-Africa, Spain, Sweden, Canada, China) in order to allow researchers and students to participate in international exchange programs.

Sciences The Department of Life and Environmental Sciences (DiSVA) was established in 2011 by merging a number of laboratories involved in a wide spectrum of fundamental and applied research topics. The department includes more than 100 scientists and technicians that conduct research in areas such as analytical and organic chemistry, biophysics, cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics, microbiology and biotechnology, viral, prokaryotic, fungal, algal, plant and animal systematics, physiology and reproduction, marine biology, ecology, eco-toxicology, oceanography, Earth sciences, risk reduction and civil protection. In the last five years, scientists from DiSVA published more than 650 papers in international peer reviewed journals, on average cited more than 2500 times per year (ISI, Web of Science). These scientists directly collaborate with numerous research centers and Large Scale facilities worldwide coordinating and carrying out several national and international research projects (including EU programs from FP5 to FP7) and some of them participate in the National Antarctic Research Program and are involved in international expeditions to the Arctic and the world's oceans. DISVA is a local unit of several research consortia (e.g. the Italian Consortium for Marine Science - CoNISMa, the Italian Consortium for Physics of Matter - CNISM, and the High Tech Recycling Center - HTR), and hosts the headquarters of the Italian Association of Oceanology and Limnology (AIOL), the Italian Society of Ecology (SITE), the Italian Society of Neutron Spectroscopy (SISN) and the Italian Zoological Union (UZI). It also hosts the editorial office of several international scientific journals (e.g. Chemistry and Ecology, Advances in Oceanography and Limnology, Marine Environmental Research, TheScientificWorldJournal: Biophysics). Three academic spin-off companies (Oceans Soc Coop, Ecotechsystems srl, and EcoReach) have been initiated by DiSVA's scientists and graduate students.

UNIVPM fosters INTERNATIONALIZATION as one of the top priorities of the university strategic development plan INTERNATIONALIZATION is necessary because of: 1.International policies (European Union and Bologna Process) 2.National policies (Ministerial regulations and recommendations) 3.Local policies and pressures (Adriatic-Ionian Macro-region)
International UNIVPM: Agreements with foreign universities/institutions Participation in international networks International courses Joint programmes Mobility (Students and Staff) MOBILITY IS ESSENTIAL FOR INTERNATIONALIZATION Benefits for the individualBenefits for the institution intercultural experience added value to CVs opportunity for career development improvement of academic collaboration dissemination of innovations international dimension of research student recruitment
