The Third Mission of the University of Naples Federico II mobilizes and connects different actors and offers itself as a meeting space between the university community (teachers, staff and students) and the various economic and social stakeholders. Overcoming individualisms, it aims to adopt a common perspective for the future.

An ecosystem of innovation is a place of contamination of advanced teaching, research, public-private laboratories and the third sector to strengthen the social and economic effects of research activities.
