OGS has a notable vocation, which has been consolidated over the years, for skills development and international partnerships. On these grounds, the institute has launched a strategy based on the concept of knowledge exchange and where capacity building, understood as a process of continuous improvement of the individual, plays a prominent role. It is worth noting that the OGS is part of a well-known network comprising numerous international institutes and universities.
All this contributes to creating an extremely dynamic working environment that fosters the attraction and circulation of talent, while also stimulating partnership networks and international projects.
Indeed, OGS actively participates in several research networks, associations and consortia – a significant list when looking at the quality and international reputation of the institutions present.
Moreover, the highly multidisciplinary approach to environmental studies is an opportunity to work in an extremely active and advanced field of research that allows transferring scientific results from the research world to the productive sector and society, thus contributing to technological and socio-economic development.
The institute also aims at promoting both Science and Environmental Diplomacy by fostering international dialogue and encouraging international cooperation with a particular focus on the Mediterranean, Central European and Balkan regions, the Black Sea, Latin America, the Polar Regions and more recently Central Asia.
