Vision: VISION Politecnico di Torino is an academic community committed to generating and sharing “polytechnical knowledge” for effective and sustainable development of society at global, national and international level. Being an academic community implies: Valorising our people, who all commit themselves to working individually and collectively in a rigorous way; fostering the development of diverse and constant interactions among them. Encouraging a growing openness towards the interaction with other communities and organizations: Italian and foreign universities and research centres, the alumni community, firms from any industry sector and size, spin-offs and start-ups, public and private institutions, as well as the various components of the civil society. Putting the generation and sharing of “polytechnical knowledge” at the heart of our policies implies: Working in the complex cultural scenario which is nurtured by scientific, engineering, architecture, planning and design disciplines, blending them together and with human and social sciences with a design perspective. Promoting an effective and virtuous development at political, economic, social and environmental level. Putting the generation and sharing of “polytechnical knowledge” at the heart of our policies also implies: Assuring and improving the effectiveness of the processes that enable the three University missions. Adapting these processes to the current rapid pace of change.
