The Alma Mater Studiorum, the oldest university in the Western world, paves the way for innovation through an increasingly rich programme catalogue, cutting-edge research and a constant and increasingly broad international perspective. As a comprehensive research university, Alma Mater invests in the multidisciplinary cross-cultural approach and in the inseparable connection between research and teaching.

Within the INCA project, members of two different departments of the University of Bologna are covering important and multidisciplinary aspects of the research: the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, to which Edoardo Mollona, the project coordinator, belongs, the Department of the Arts and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

Role in INCA: The members of the Department of the Arts will be leading WP1 (the Theoretical Framework), the members of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering will lead WP3 and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, including Edoardo Mollona, will be leading WP4, WP11 and WP12, as well as the whole project, apart from having a crucial collaboration and participation role in all work packages.
