The goal of the research unit is to set up projects and training activities in the field of logic and computational thinking, as mainly referred to the structure of language, computation and communication.
The unit also serves as consultant in - and provides support to -- projects and activities by third parties, that involve the development of logical skills, both directly, and indirectly. LogLab has a record of scientific collaborations with both public institutions and private companies, with which it sets up agreements and conventions about technology transfer in its research field.
The unit supplies its own activity by deploying its members for the purposes of outer projects. It also plays the role of a connecting node in a network of different realities such as schools, universities, private companies and public institutions, by coordinating projects and resources, and by distributing the required skills.
The built-up of the research unit itself is the natural consequence of the role played by its members in a variety of training activities at University of Florence, which are oriented towards prospective students and are concretely witnessed:
(i) by the project “Dialogare” on the development of logical skills, supported by the Italian Ministry of University and Research - MIUR;
