The Environmental Science and Policy (ESP) Department was founded in April 2017 with the aim of creating a hub of research and training in the field of Environmental Sciences.
Environmental issues are addressed in the broadest way possible, with the aim of developing a highly interdisciplinary approach.
The ESP group focuses on the combination of Natural, Economic and Social sciences, key variables in the solution of any sustainability issue. The Department gathers professors and researchers in the fields of Social Sciences and Humanities (SH), Life Sciences (LS) and Physical and Engineering Sciences (PE), gaining a complete outlook over the domains of agronomy, food, biology, chemistry, ecology, economy, physics, geology, management, mathematics, sanitary, toxicology and zootechny.
The staff includes 50 professors and researchers, of which 11 ordinary professors, 18 associate professors, 21 researchers, and more than 29 postdoctoral researchers, plus 12 administrative staff.
