PERT (The Process Engineering Research Team) is composed of professors and researchers of the Department of Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering of University of Genoa who are involved in study and research in both traditional and innovative fields of Process Engineering with particular interest in the interaction of technology and the environment for the promotion of sustainable ecological and human development.

PERT is developing an efficient collaborative network with other research institutes and industrial concerns for the clean production of energy from renewable or traditional sources.

PERT is involved in many national and international projects that aim to promote awareness of and attainment of common objectives in the field of Process Engineering.

PERT is primarily involved in teaching the Principles of Chemical Engineering and its related fields within undergraduate and post-graduate courses in Chemical Engineering and Civil and Environmental Engineering.
