Departments of Excellence

The Departments of Excellence represent an innovative policy with strong economic support, provided for by the budget law of 2017. This intervention aims to identify and fund (in five-year sessions and within the 14 CUN areas) the 180 best public university departments. These are departments which stand out for the quality of their research output and development projects.

The Department of Health Sciences  and the Department of Translational Medicine figure among the funded 180 departments for the 2018-2022 period, amounting to a total of 14.6 million Euro (7,309,355 Euro each).
