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.

Upcoming Events

Guided by the careful  and wise University decision to transition to virtual learning and the rapid spread of COVID-19 all  Spring semester events of the Italian Research Institute of Georgetown College are canceled.  Confronted  with a challenging global and local outbreak of the virus which affects many aspects of our life, we are committed to ensure a safe environment for everyone.  We hope to reschedule the events in the future.  We are grateful for your support of our events.
