As every Wednesday, we keep on posting our partner’s presentations. The RIPEC partner presenting itself today is Università degli Studi della Tuscia – Viterbo.
The University of Tuscia (UNITUS), established in 1979, is a public medium size university, counting about 320 teaching staff and 300 administrative staff members taking care of about 8.000 students, active at all levels of studies: undergraduate, masters, PhDs and specialization schools.
Its vocation by birth is mostly agriculture but over the years the University has developed and carried out several projects and activities in any field of study of the six departments which the University is made up of. Students can in fact choose among 15 Bachelor’s degrees, 18 Master’s Degrees, 2 single-cycle degrees and 7 PhD courses, split out in six departments.
With 3 Departments awarded the label of Excellency and financed with 22 million euros, 21 national financed projects and 33 international projects, 19 out of them within the Horizon programme, the University of Tuscia ranges among the most active universities in Italy.
The number of Inter-institutional agreements, which cover all the member states, and of the incoming and outgoing students, confirm a strong international dimension that the University of Tuscia has been developing over time. This international dimension has been massively increased by the funds of a wide ICM KA107 project which counts 26 partner countries, 59 Universities covering 4 continents.
