Why is it important to talk about third mission?
The Shifters answers this question. The project says a lot about the importance of the third mission, to such an extent that it is tailor-made on the knowledge of University. With an artistic language it disseminates the research and tells the weight of the third mission in today’s context. It explains the reason for a leap that University has the task of achieving: the transition from theory to practice, the enhancement of university knowledge and finally its expendability. The researches in fact have an outlet, they are not ending in themselves. Indeed, they are born in order to be applied throughout the territory. There is a benefit to public society, a public service that the university makes to the community to increase the value of living together.
If you tell a story, then everything changes.
