AlmaGoals shows the commitment of the Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda.

AlmaGoals presents the University of Bologna contribution to the advancement of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, by presenting the information described in the University 2017 Report on U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.

The report was formulated by the Scientific and Technical Committee for Social Reporting at the University of Bologna from October 2017 to May 2018. The data presented herein refers to 2017, as well as A.Y. 2017/18 for teaching data.

Each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals is reported on in relation to the four dimensions of activities carried out at the University of Bologna (teaching, research, third mission and institution, where available) using a set of metrics specially formulated to match and integrate with the institutional documents adopted by the University of Bologna. In AlmaGoals teaching, research, third mission and institution projects are presented in further details.

The data comes mainly from the University Data Warehouse, a database powered by the Alma Mater Studiorum’s management systems, also drawing upon ad hoc surveys by the coordinators of the study programme, content analysis of research projects and cooperation programmes, and SCOPUS queries.

For full information on metrics and methodology please consult the Methodological Note on the Report available for download here.
