The research activity is carried out by a group of researchers who are members of the Ugo Bordoni Foundation and of the Department of Ingegneria dell'Energia Elettrica e dell'Informazione "Guglielmo Marconi" (DEI, University of Bologna), and is conducted at Villa Griffone. The area of research includes radio applications, particularly with regard to mobile and personal communication systems and management of the radio-electrical spectrum.

Since 1980 research, advanced learning, popularization and national and international scientific meetings in the mobile communications sectors have been carried out at Villa Griffone. Until the end of the 1980’s the original group of researchers at Villa Griffone contributed to defining GSM standards. Since then, collaboration with major research institutes, operators and European manufacturing companies has further continued with its participation in various European projects associated with the RACE program.

At the same time, the group took part in the European COST 207 research project, particularly in defining propagation models for land mobile communications. This research continued throughout this project's extensions, successively named COST 231, COST 259, COST 273, COST 2100, COST IC1004 and currently COST CA15104 IRACON (www.iracon.org).

Today the main areas of research and collaboration with national and international institutions are: prediction models, planning, radio access and environmental impact of radio systems.

Marconi was the creator of the present day civilization of the radio. All of those who, with spirit of initiative and perseverance, have brought us to the present stage of development have built on the foundations laid by Marconi. Everyone considered him the tutelary genius of their work.
