After the legal establishment of the status of Universities in Italy as training institutions for High School teachers the role of the Department of Mathematics increased and it became one of the main centres of initial training of High School teachers. A new phenomenon in recent years is the activation of different forms of interactions and collaborations with High schools as courses (with participation of many talented students from High Schools), mathematical competitions, meetings with High Schools teachers.
The Department of Mathematics has a well-developed system of International Relations. There more than 20 bilateral Socrates agreements with Universities in different countries in Europe. Recently 4 new bilateral Socrates agreements have been activated with some East European Countries. Members of the Department of Mathematics take part and organise the preparation of talented students in Mathematics for different Mathematical competitions.
