ReForm is the acronym derived from Research Platform

In line with the strategy of CDI assumed at institutional level, ReForm-UDJG represents a modern organizational framework for an efficient use of the university resources (human resources, strategic infrastructure) for multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary extensive research, competitive at the regional, national and international levels with strong scientific, technological, cultural and social impact.

ReForm-UDJG integrates the work of performing research units with that of doctoral schools in order to increase efficiency, scientific performance, impact and visibility.

The development strategy of ReForm-UDJG is derived from the National Strategy for Research, Development and Innovation 2014-2020, the National Competitiveness Strategy 2014-2020, the European Commission's CDI Strategy (2014-2020) and the UDJG's approach to the scientific research and artistic creation as set forward in the Research-Development-Innovation Strategy (CDI) 2016-2020; Strategy for the internationalization of CDI activity 2016-2020; CDI-UDJG Operational Plan).

The ReForm-UDJG activity will be structured in the following areas:
  1. Engineering sciences, exact sciences and natural sciences
  2. Social sciences, humanities and arts
  3. Biomedical sciences, sports and physical education sciences
The priority objectives of ReForm-UDJG are:
  1. To create a regionally representative research platform by concentrating resources and prioritizing their allocation, by encouraging multidisciplinary partnerships and approaches, with the assessment of their fundamental and applicative impact in order to facilitate innovation.
  2. To focus resources on research and innovation areas of scientific and technological relevance, with potential demonstrated by relevant results, with visible impact to the economic and social environment.
  3. To develop a stimulating environment for the fundamental and applied research.
  4. To internationalize research, development and innovation activity while increasing visibility in strategic areas.
  5. To perform research, development and innovation activities in compliance with society's needs so as to address global challenges of national and international relevance.
  6. To expand the competences of the human resources involved in research so as to transform research, development and innovation into a factor of scientific progress and economic growth.
