The 2021-2022 edition shows a clear ranking improvement of the University of Turin: moving up 36 places from last edition, it now places 485th, thus among the world’s top 500 universities individually highlighted in the ranking (the other universities are ranked by subject) The University of Turin places 13th out of 41 universities in Italy.

Ranking its best position ever, it is in the world’s top 37% of universities ranked by QS, while last edition it placed in the range 520-530th. In Italy, the best university is Politecnico di Milano (placed 142th in the world’s ranking), followed by the University of Bologna and Sapienza University of

Significantly, the University of Turin has improved its position regardless of the effects of thepandemic, which have been more dramatic for many international universities, causing them a demotion.

The first seminar on LGBTQ+ Rights was conducted on 10 May 2021 by the University of Turin, which systematically addressed the main topics connected to the LGBTQ+ community from a legal perspective.

The seminar was organized by Marco Pellissero, Professor of Criminal Law, and Antonio Vercellone, researcher in the field of Civil Law. 11 meetings took place, each of which dedicated to a particularly relevant topic for the LGBTQ+ community. Guests from all Italy were invited. Althought partecipation to the seminar was initially limited to students attending the fourth and fifth year of Law, after the first meetings the seminar was opened to the public.

The first meetings focused on topics that are dominating political debates, such as Civil Unions and Surrogacy. Alongside the legal topics, also interdisciplinary contributions, such as the historical excursus of Prof. Maya de Leo, and some speeches from LGBTQ+ rights activists
were made.

Politecnico di Torino, Università di Torino, Università del Piemonte Oientale, Università della Valle d’Aosta – Université de la Vallée d’Aoste and Università di Scienze Gastronomiche di Pollenzo have recently signed an agreement for the reciprocity of library services.

The commitment is to guarantee reciprocal access to library facilities, in accordance with the rules in force in each university. Users will be identified by presenting their university ID card or “smart card”. Thanks to the agreement, therefore, students, teachers and technical staff of each university will be able, free of charge and under a reciprocal regime, to use many of the services offered by all the libraries of the signatory universities: from home loan to
photocopying and printing services from the Internet – in compliance with the regulations in force – to inter-library services, that is the possibility of receiving at one own library volumes and copies of articles or parts of volumes owned by other libraries. Users from all the universities will also be guaranteed access to the bibliographic and documentary heritage of the universities, with the proviso that users will only be able to access electronic resources from the computer workstations available on the premises of the libraries hosting them.

It will also be possible to use the computer workstations and surf the web to carry out bibliographic research and access documentary resources, selected in line with the mission and objectives of study, research and documentation of the libraries.
The universities also undertake to cooperate in organising refresher and training initiatives for staff and in implementing further joint inter-library projects.
In this way, the foundations are laid for the implementation of projects aimed at innovating strategies and practices concerning both digital library services and the promotion of open access to cultural and scientific resources.

Finally, in the medium and long term, the wish of the promoting universities is to collaborate in the construction and enhancement of knowledge through the culture of books – paper and/or digital – in order to contribute to the social, cultural and economic development of the territory, thus favouring the achievement of common objectives in the field of Third Mission.
