Mission: The University of Salento is a community, made up of students, professors and technical-administrative staff, which recognizes itself in the free promotion of research and teaching as instruments of human development, affirmation of pluralism and pursuit of equal social dignity, in full independence from any ideological, political, religious, economic orientation. Within the university community no one may be discriminated against, in any way or form whatsoever, by reason of his or her choices of study, research and teaching. The University of Salento guarantees its students equal opportunities and equal dignity by promoting merit and valuing excellence and supports applied and basic research, recognizing itself in the principle of evaluation. Alongside the two fundamental objectives of training and research, the University of Salento pursues a third mission, i.e. it works to promote the direct application, enhancement and use of knowledge to contribute to the social, cultural and economic development of the territory in which it operates. On an international level, the University of Salento pursues all forms of collaboration aimed at fostering knowledge and mutual enrichment between cultures, the circulation of knowledge and the exchange of students and staff.
Vision: Information not localized
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
