Dr. Fini’s research has significant impact on policy and practice. For instance, the TASTE database, an outcome of the TASTE project, has been used since 2014 by ANVUR, the Italian agency for the evaluation of university research, as the starting point for the national evaluation of the external engagement by Italian academics, in reference to the 'Chapter on Academic Spin-off' (see MIUR - ANVUR - SUA-RD - Third Mission). Moreover, Dr. Fini has published four technical reports, assessing the state of the art of external engagement and impact by academics in Italy and the UK (see for example, Accounting for Impact at Imperial College London: A Report on the Activities and Outputs by Imperial Academics Relevant for Economic and Social Impact, 2014). Finally, his research has been featured in international popular press outlets, such as Nature.com, Times Higher Education and The New York Times, as well as in Italian ones, such as Il Sole 24 Ore and L’espresso.
By engaging the local context and municipalities, Dr Fini has contributed to develop the human and social capital of high-school students, young professionals and citizens in general. For instance, in 2016 in San Lazzaro Bologna, he has organised a seminar-serie entitled A context of excellence, the excellence in the context, focused on Agro-Food, Automation and Fintech industries, bringing together students, entrepreneurs, managers and policy-makers. Furthermore, since 2015 in Bologna, by joining a team of academics, managers and policy-makers, Dr Fini has developed reports and studies on the local attractiveness of the municipality of Bologna and of the Emilia Romagna region.
