IRInSubria collects, stores, documents and disseminates information on the scientific production of the University of Insubria from 2015, also for the purposes of research evaluation. 
The University research product repository is the only source of data for both internal and external evaluation and also automatically populates the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) research registry. 

Research training

Several figures contribute to the organization of events which address researchers: the Doctoral School, the individual Departments, the Research services. This results in a wide and balanced proposal for PhD students, professors, research fellows and personnel who organize research projects, which aims to provide specialized and interdisciplinary  expertise whose purpose is to promote the career development of researchers. 

Starting from 2021 these initiatives are articulated in a multi-year training plan for researchers

Part of this multi-year training plan is aimed at young researchers and is integrated in their PCDP Personal Career Development Plan
