Made in Italy Research Center - MADEINT
The Administration Council of UNINT established MADEINT (Made in Italy Research Center) within the Faculty of Economics on July 6th, 2015, and it collaborates with the CONFAPI (Italian Confederation of Small and Medium Industry).
MADEINT's goal is to carry out systematic and innovative research on the evolution of the structural and management characteristics of the different sub-categories of the Made-in-Italy, focusing on the SMEs' globalization strategies.
In this perspective, the MADEINT's activities are targeted to national companies working on foreign markets; public and private political decision-makers who promote and protect Italian productions; international and national scientific communities; and all the areas of civil society with an interest and reasonable understanding of the structure and the dynamics of the Made-in-Italy sectors.
MADEINT is behind the publication of a yearly "Report on Made-in-Italy", ad hoc studies and analyses, and management and linguistic consulting services to support the globalization strategies of Italian SMEs.
MADEINT and the Faculty of Economics have a close synergy, especially with the Master's Degree in International Economics and Management - curriculum "Luxury Goods, Made in Italy and Emerging Markets" with the laboratories, Master theses, and learning by doing projects on the dynamics and companies of the typical sectors of Made-in-Italy.
It also promotes and organizes seminars, scientific conventions and meetings with entrepreneurs and managers of prime Italian companies, national and international academicians and experts from public or private institutions.
Researchers, professors from Italian or foreign Universities or institutions, and recognized experts in the scientific areas of MADEINT are invited to join the Research Center. The process can be found in the rules and regulations.

Laboratory of Mathematical Sciences (LabSciMat)
UNINT University established a Laboratory of Mathematical Sciences (LabSciMat) under the guidance of Prof. Giandomenico Boffi, full professor of Algebra, whose aim is to promote research in, application and spreading of mathematical science without forgetting its history and origins; and to promote a dialog between mathematics and other sciences and with all faces of human experience. Scholars both from within the University and from other institutions cooperate with the Laboratory.
The Reasons for a Laboratory of Mathematical Sciences
"Mathematical Sciences" - as shown for example by the eponymous center at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom - includes not only mathematics but also statistics, econometrics, computer science etc. and best responds to the vocation of a University such as the Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma - UNINT.
The term "Laboratory" is not merely a reference to the availability of suitable resources for automatic calculation; rather, it highlights - more than "center" or other similar terms - the idea of ongoing creative work embodied by this initiative within the context of the University.
Research, applications and dissemination, inside and outside of the University
Research and application in certain areas of mathematics, statistics and econometrics in synergy with scientific and university circles in Rome and other locations, addressing industrial research. Special attention to ongoing update of school teachers and innovation in teaching, also addressing the epistemology and history of science.
Dialog with other sciences and with all faces of human experience
First and foremost, dialog with the other sciences cultivated in a university with UNINT University's vocation (economics, law, etc.). Also open to themes such as mathematics and the arts (music, cinema, ...), mathematics and philosophy, science and theology, etc.

National Academy for the Study of Insurance and Financial Intermediary Security (ANSSAIF)
A Service and Research Center named ACCADEMIA NAZIONALE PER LO STUDIO DELLA SICUREZZA DELLE ASSICURAZIONI ED INTERMEDIARI FINANZIARI - ANSSAIF (National Academy for the Study of Insurance and Financial Intermediary Security) has been set up within the University. The Center acknowledges the complexity and high degree of specialization and interdisciplinarity of the competences required for the fine-tuning and study of new technical and organizational security measures.
The purpose of the Center is to improve the resilience of insurance companies and financial intermediaries by creating and fostering:
- research and studies on national and international best practices;
- synergies with enterprises and among enterprises that operate in the supply chain (supply chain security);
- match between demand and supply of organizational and technical countermeasures, with certification of their effectiveness and quality;
- raising awareness among citizens, especially students, towards issues concerning the protection of persons, goods and data from the risks of loss of confidentiality, integrity and availability, through:
- surveys among citizens to gauge their sensitivity to security-related issues, such as risk perception, ability to evaluate means of payment, etc.;
- teaching courses for students;
- courses for enterprises;
- institution and implementation of university Master's degrees;
- student involvement in research activities with insurance companies and financial intermediaries, with the clear objective of creating awareness among young people by adding knowledge of Security issues to their study courses, whilst also facilitating their approach to the professional world.
Civil Protection and Emergency Academy
Since its foundation in 1996, UNINT University takes part in the progress and cultural integration process, promoting an international and dynamic dimension – knowing that education and university research represent an essential resource for the country. In this Mindset, UNINT founded the Civil Protection and Emergency Academy, a Didactic Hub meant to train new professional profiles in terms of civil protection at L’Aquila.
The law №225 from 24-feb-1992 and its subsequent amendments deeply innovated the civil protection regulations, giving specific tasks to mayors, province presidents and region presidents. The mayor is the heart of civil protection at a communal level and therefore is personally responsible (both in civil and criminal courts) for the safety of the people when a disaster strikes (see the many convictions). For a mayor to serve as Local Authority for civil protection, they must have the necessary training. Such training must have the support structure for the decisions that must be made since the prevention and organization phases of the communal civil protection system and in the operative phases after the emergency. The right training can therefore help mayors and presidents of regions or provinces avoid or reduce the heavy responsibilities that are linked to their role as Civil Protection Authority. Considering that the initiative goes beyond the local level and into the provincial, regional, national and European levels with its socio-economic and cultural implications, UNINT activated the didactic hub in L’Aquila for the following sectors:
- Civil Protection Management (University course);
- Emergency economics (University course);
- A vocational training course for Civil Protection Officers working in local bodies;
- A vocational training course for Civil Protection Volunteers;
- An observatory on the field to check the tools and means dedicated to civil protection;
- Pre-event communication.
For each activated initiative, UNINT will make up to 5 seats available for people working for provincial or regional administration.
Goals of the Didactic hub:
- Assist the decision-making process to avoid natural phenomena turning into disasters.
- Give the local autonomous bodies specific knowledge on the problems linked to risks, vulnerability and the decisions that must be made.
- Create “new professional profiles and careers” that do not exist yet but are needed for the safety of the day-to-day lives of citizens, with multidisciplinary skills and able to manage an emergency and uncertainty.
- Provide administrators with highly specialized professionals who will assist them in their role as civil protection officers.
- Train the personnel according to the guidelines of the department of civil protection.
- Train the personnel to manage communications with the media and the people before and during an emergency.
- Continuous education for staff and volunteers.
- Assist local administration in evaluating risks and preparing civil protection plans.
On March 14th, 2014, the Protocol of Agreement was signed between the municipality of L’Aquila and UNINT University for studies, research and training in the field of civil protection. On October 24th, 2013, UNINT had already signed a Protocol of Agreement with the province of L’Aquila for the same purpose.
UNINT is located in the historic center of L’Aquila, in via dell’Arcivescovado, 8.
