The Department of Environmental Science and Policy (ESP) was born in April 2017 with the aim to create a research and training facility specifically devoted to the environmental sciences, characterized by multidisciplinary skills required for an integrated analysis of the environment.
The Department addresses the environmental subjects in their broadest context, focusing on the coexistence, in the same scientific frame, of the widest expertise background and on the development of a multidisciplinary method.
One of the most relevant aspect is related to the integration of the natural sciences with the economic and social ones, each of them being essential in every sustainable solution to environmental issues.
Professors and researchers of the Department of Environmental Science and Policy belong to different but complementary subject areas. They propose to pursue the three missions of the university institution – research, training, third mission – by developing scientific research activities of advanced training, provision of information, knowledge dissemination and technological transfer in the environmental field, thereby contributing with their own skills to a shared effort of multidisciplinary analysis and synthesis.
