International Network Routes towards Sustainability
The aim of Routes towards Sustainability is to develop interdisciplinary research on sustainable development and to activate teaching programmes at a graduate and postgraduate level.
At the beginning of 2012 the University of Ferrara took upon itself the task of constituting an international network on the topic of sustainability by contacting nine universities with which scientific collaboration had been consolidated over the years.
The rationale was elaborated and circulated among the prospective partner universities, aimed at preparing the ground for the official launch of the network which took place in October 2012.
The collaborative research projects carried out and the double degree programmes designed in 2013 and 2014 testify to the numerous approaches through which the operative feasibility of the network has been tested and strengthened.
