PRIN PNRR: 14 Bocconi Scholars FundedTHE TRADITIONAL CALL FOR PROJECTS OF RELEVANT NATIONAL INTEREST WAS JOINED THIS YEAR BY ONE RESERVED FOR RESEARCH PROJECTS IN LINE WITH THE GOALS OF THE NATIONAL RECOVERY AND RESILIENCE PLAN
Fourteen Bocconi scholars have been awarded a total of about €1.4mln in funding under the Ministry of University and Research's PRIN 2022 PNRR call, which this year joined the traditional call for projects of relevant national interest (PRIN).
The PRIN program is designed to fund public research projects in order to promote the national research system, strengthen interactions between universities and research institutions, and encourage Italian participation in initiatives related to the European Union's Framework Program for Research and Innovation.
In the case of the PRIN 2022 PNRR call, funding was reserved for research projects in line with the objectives outlined in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), that is, projects in five well-defined areas: sustainability and protection of natural resources; circular economy; biodiversity and ecosystem services; environmental quality; and human well-being. “To this end,” the call stated, “the PRIN program funds two-year projects that by complexity and nature may require the collaboration of multiple professors/researchers. Depending on the nature of the project, the research team must consist of at least two research units from different universities, organizations or institutions.”
In 9 of the 14 projects funded, the Bocconi scholar is the principal investigator of the research.
The researchers who were awarded funding are: Massimo Anelli, Stefano Breschi, Nicolò Cavalli, Giacinto Della Cananea, Vincenzo Galasso, Giulia Giupponi, Pamela Giustinelli, Carlo Lucibello, Donato Masciandaro, Zachary Parolin, Igor Pruenster, Julien Sauvagnat, Hannes Wagner, Kai Zhu.
