Study and Research Center

The Fondazione Campus’ Study and Research Center – founded in 2008 by a group of scholars from the Universities of Pisa, Milan Bicocca, Pavia and Lugano and by qualified professionals in the field – carries out research activities in a multidisciplinary and international prospective in the area of tourism and, more generally, in the ’cultural heritage of the territory’ (local development, art, cultural management).

The Center’s strong point is to develop a synergy between university education and managerial formation. As a consequence, the Center offers educational activities in the conviction that the way to do business with a level of excellence is achieved only through the relation between the above mentioned instruments (research and managerial activities).

Coordinated by Prof. Enrica Lemmi, the Center collaborates with a team of specialized researchers, who study the territory and tourism in their multiple aspects.



The Center carries out its activities through a methodology based on the following prominent points: multidisciplinary, internationalization, networking, laboratory use, empirical verifications, continuous exchange of ideas with public and private players, models of quantitative measurement.

The Center is interested in developing research projects pertinent to the study of governance, developmental policies and enhancement and promotion of the territory’s resources.
