University of L´Aquila

L’Aquila, Italy
On 11th October 1458 and again on 9th May 1464, the city of L'Aquila petitioned King Ferdinand of Aragon to open a Studium equivalent to those in Bologna, Siena and Perugia. Shortly before, the town had withdrawn support for the last of the Angevin and surrendered to the Spanish sovereign. The King granted this request, but there is no documentary evidence to suggest that the city authorities opened the Studium. On the other hand records do show that both before and after the date of the petition, citizens of L'Aquila (Fra' Giovanni da Capestrano, for example, and Berardino di Ludovico, nephew to the chronicler Francesco d'Angeluccio di Bazzano, who took a degree in 1474) went to study civil and canon law at the Studium in Perugia.

About

Since Act n. 240 dated 30th December 2010 came into force and the new University Statute was drawn up, the University of L'Aquila has restructured it's teaching and research facilities, opening in 2012 seven new Departments which promote, coordinate, organize and carry out research and academic teaching: Department of Biotechnological and Applied Clinical Sciences, Department of Civil, Construction-Architectural and Environmental Engineering, Department of Human Studies, Department of Industrial and Information Engineering and Economics, Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics, Department of Life, Health and Environmental Sciences,Department of Physical and Chemical Sciences.

The University of L'Aquila is responsible for running the Alpine Botanical Gardensituated near the cableway on the Gran Sasso, which extends for 3000 sq metres and conserves plant life from the Gran Sasso, endemic central Apennine plant life, primitive alpine plants, plants originating from the Eastern Balkans and medicinal plants.

Research and teaching in Physics benefit from its associations with the underground nuclear physics Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS). There in the 1980s theNational Institute for Nuclear Physics built beside the motorway tunnel through the Gran Sasso laboratories, where, protected by 1400 metres of rock, research in astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear physics and geophysics is carried out.

Professors and researchers of the University of L’Aquila have established links with the Gran Sasso Science Institute, an international PhD school and a center for advanced studies in physics, mathematics, computer science and social sciences located in L’Aquila.

The departments of the University of L'Aquila have also established links with research centres all over the world. Many are the research projects involving collaboration with high technology industries, such as for the world market Dompé Farmaceutici, a prominent company which has set up a firm and research centre in L’Aquila.

The research centres of our University are set up on the basis of multi-year projects between various university departments to carry out research work embracing multiple scientific areas, or to collaborate in the management of complex scientific apparatus or support systems, also involving other public and private institutions or individuals.
