Explanation:
From the other questions you have asked I gather that this is some ssort of institute, school or research centre that has been set up as an offshoot of the university that originally founded it.
I would work around "interdisciplinarietà" as I suggest.

Explanation:
"spiccata" might be "noteworthy" here - e.g. still today the most noteworthy characteristic is the fact that it is based on an interdisciplinary approach - which MIGHT be OK but it is a bit stilted I would agree, but then so might the original...
