The Georgetown University Italian Research Institute, housed in the College, was established in December 2013 to promote, identify, facilitate, and support the advancement of contemporary cutting-edge Italian research in medicine, the sciences, technology, environment, engineering, international affairs, finance, industry, the arts, design, literature, and film.

The Institute serves as a bridge to encourage collaborative engagement between Italian and non-Italian scholars and leaders. To achieve its goal the Institute hosts distinguished thinkers and leaders in their fields to present their research, share their vision, and address challenges confronting research & leadership.
