ADAPT – Adapt is a non-profit organisation founded in 2000 by Professor Marco Biagi with the aim of promoting stud­ies and research in the field of labour law and industrial relations from an international and comparative per­spective. Our purpose is to encourage and implement a new approach to academic research, by establish­ing long-term relationships with other universities and advanced studies institutes, and promoting academic and scientific exchange programs with enterprises, in­stitutions, foundations and associations.

For these purposes, Adapt:

- collaborates with the “Marco Biagi” Centre for In­ternational and Comparative Studies at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia;
