Strategic Plan 2022-2027

The Strategic Plan is the programming document outlining the University mission, objectives and strategic areas of intervention.

I am proud to present to the Alma Mater community and the society in which and for which we operate, the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan that will set the direction of our actions for the next six years.

This Strategic Plan is the result of participated discussions within the Academic Bodies and all University entities. It is the sixth Strategic Plan of the University of Bologna since 2007. The first and only one during my mandate as Rector, as it will cover its entire duration: our intention is for strategic planning to also reflect the objectives that aim to take advantage of the opportunities set out by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP).

But this is not the only novelty. The 2022-2027 Strategic Plan includes annual monitoring and reviews every three years, in order to progressively focus on our development objectives; next to the traditional areas – teaching, research, and third mission – it also includes people, acknowledging that our community is the pillar of all our future actions and at the same time it deserves to be the centre of care and attention; it is based on the main principals of our Regulations, which are translated in tangible objectives and open to new rights; the objectives also include relations with the Health Service.

For these and other of its characteristics, the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan reflects and represents the acknowledgement that we can provide a huge contribution to the creation of public value. It is defined by strong values, decisive policies, and ambitions worthy of our history and ideals.
