Università degli Studi di Roma 'Tor Vergata'  was established in 1982 and designed on the model of Anglo-Saxon campuses: it stretches on 600 hectares and hosts important research institutions, such as the National research Council (CNR) and the Italian Space Agency. Many other centers are located close to this University, e.g. the Institute for Renewable Energies (ENEA), The European Space Agency (ESA-ESRIN), the National Institute of Astrophysics and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics. Their presence has contributed to develop the university as a dynamic research pole. Its mission is to contribute to achieve a truly sustainable development though training and education, scientific research and education and technological/social innovation, according to the Sustainable Development Goals approved by the United Nations in September 2015.

The University  has a research center and three Master programmes in the area of procurement:
- Proxenter: an interdisciplinary research center on Public and Private Procurement and on Supply Chain, Management, which works with governments, institutions and companies;
- International Master in Public Procurement Management: an executive programme (supported by the EBRD) aimed to train international senior officers on strategic and state-of-the-art approaches in public procurement;  .
- Master in Procurement Management, a one year Master with three specializations (the Private sector, the Public sector and the Defence sector);

- a track of the MSc in Business Administration fully focused on Supply Chain Management. It aims to prepare students for a career in supply chain in manufacturing/service companies and management consulting firms.
