DISI is involved in projects aimed at three main targets:
- Education and Mobility Projects
are projects whose main goal is to provide fellowships (e.g. at the master and doctorate level) for students (graduate and undergraduate) and to fund mobility to Trento and from Trento for students, DISI members, visitors and collaborators. These projects are funded by many different entities, private and public (e.g. funding agencies, companies)
- Industrial Projects
are research, consulting, technology transfer, ... projects funded by companies and other entities
- Research Projects
are research projects funded by funding bodies (e.g. the European Community, the Ministry of education)
At the same time the Department of Trento University is one of the main players in research and development of the Information and Communication Technology sector at local, Italian and European level.
