The Software Engineering Research LABoratory (SERLAB) is a research laboratory of the Department of Informatics of the University of Bari directed by Prof. Danilo Caivano.

The mission is represented by its logo:

  • The blue sphere represents the knowledge acquired through empirical studies.
  • The red sphere represents the knowledge applied to the improvement of industrial practices.
  • The grey orbit represents the continuos academia-industry knowledge & Technological Transfer in the software engineering field.

In 2007 a group of SERLAB academics, young researchers and students founded a Spin Off company of the University of Bari named SER&Practices S.r.l.

SERLAB and SER&Practices represent a point of reference for local, national and international development in the field of scientific and industrial research.
