Pa.S.T.I.S. promotes, implements, and coordinates research, consultancy and training activities, with the aim of sharing knowledge and developing projects involving subjects interested in scientific research, new technologies, use of the media, innovation processes and environmental sustainability. These activities are carried out by the members of the research unit both through studies and research commissioned ad hoc and through specific consultancy and training activities aimed at entities and professionals. There are five research areas within which PaSTIS activities are distributed.
Pa.S.T.I.S. aims to intervene in the context of innovation by offering knowledge and tools useful for mediating between experts, citizens, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and other actors. The paths developed along the five areas led Pa.S.T.I.S. to collaborate, among others, with the National Institute of Astrophysics – INAF, SINCOTRONE TRIESTE – SCPA, the Permanent Observatory on the conditions of young people of the Veneto Region, the Experimental Zooprophylactic Institute of Venice, the Teaching Laboratory of the Planetarium of Bologna and the Veneto Regional Committee for Communications, the Center for Voluntary Service of the Province of Padua and the Federation of Artisan Entrepreneurs of Vicenza.
