Olivetti Design Contest

It’s called Olivetti Design Contest, the Industrial Design competition promoted by Olivetti, the famous company of Ivrea, protagonist of an age-old history of research and innovation and operating still today in the ICT sector. The contest, which takes place this year for the third time, is addressed to students of some of the most prestigious Italian and international institutes. Among the ones of Turin there are the IAAD – Istituto d’Arte Applicata e Design and the DAD, il Dipartimento di Architettura e Design del Politecnico di Torino.

The contest will award a prize to the projects that will present an original contribution to the realization of a smart chair and/or a fiscal printer. The jury will examine the projects, considering conceptual elements of the work, the quality of the realization and the possibility of development from the commercial point of view, taking of course into account the values of Olivetti: guidance to the client, innovation, experience, excellence and proactivity.

There will be three winning projects, to which, for each one of the two topics will be given a prize of € 2,000 (first place), €1,500 (second place) and €1,000 (third place).

The participation to the contest is free, and it is possible to participate for the design of both topics or just one. All participants have to be students enrolled in the universities and academies pointed out in the 2nd point of the current regulations at the moment of the first sending of materials.

If the project is developed by more than a student, all the team will participate in the contest.

Digital works will have to be sent by email, at the email address

How is the brain organized from the hierarchical point of view and how complex is its functioning? What is the link between the mind and the brain and where do our thoughts come from? Modern neurosciences propose a multi-line approach in order to answer these questions. This approach involves the molecular aspects, but also the psychological, psychiatric and pharmacological ones.

The Summer School “Brain and Gut Neuroscience: From Molecules to Mood”, organized by the Research Institute for Quantitative and Quantum Dynamics of Living Organisms – Center for Medicine, Mathematics & Philosophy Studies together with Bromatech, Politecnico di Torino, Società Italiana di Biologia Sperimentale, wants to present a complete vision of the human brain from both the hierarchical and the functional point of view.

The hypotheses of the cognitive neuroscience use theoretic suppositions of the physics of the XIX century. Specifically, the neural net models of the “emerging conscious experience” are based on analogies with the relationships between crystal molecules, fluids and gases and use chemical hypotheses about the appearance of thoughts, states of mind and perceptions starting from the chemical modulation of the synaptic interaction in neurons.

However, the science of the XX and XXI centuries offers probabilistic perspectives from where to study the link between the mind and the brain. The quantum mechanics and the quantum field theory gave the physicists more “degrees of freedom”.  Relatively new derivations of the quantum physics are the quantum information theory, the quantum cryptography and the quantum computing that, together with the so-called quantum biology, pave the way for new cognitive paradigm and a new psychological literature.

The study of these theories can offer new perspectives for the research on the genesis and the nature of mental illnesses.

The course will be given at the Politecnico, from 26th to 31st August  and 50 doctors from all over Italy and about 15 students of technical and physical subjects will come to Turin. They will be discussing this topic with 15 international speakers. Among them there will be Ted Dinan (Ireland), Gustav Bernroider (Austria), Paavo Pylkkanen (Finland), Mark Rasenick (Chicago, USA) and Italian lecturers Massimo Cocchi , Francesco Cappello, Giuseppe Vitiello and Alessandro Vercelli.

Bronze medal for the Politecnico di Torino

94% is the percentage of the students who find employment within an year after graduation from the Politecnico di Torino. This data was confirmed by the new world Graduate Employability Rankings 2019, by the prestigious British QS Institute. The Politecnico di Torino is once again on the international podium of universities which guarantee job prospects to its graduates.

The ability to ensure that its graduates will find an occupation has always been one of the qualities of the Politecnico di Torino. Yesterday, 11th September 2018, the Politecnico was awarded the bronze medal, ranking third in the world (not far from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO University) and the Politecnico di Milano) according to the Graduate Employment Rate, one of the five indicators of the ranking on the employment of graduates, which this year has analysed 500 universities worldwide.

The criteria followed are: the employer reputation, partnerships with companies, the success of graduates in their careers, the presence of companies in the campus and the rate of employment of graduates within an year from graduation. It’s thanks to this last indicator, calculated as the proportion between the percentage of employment of graduates and the average of the Italian universities taken into account, that the Politecnico di Torino ranked third worldwide.

The Politecnico was also good for another indicator, according to which the university ranks second in Italy: the employer reputation, which assesses the reputation that the university has according to the employer. All in all, taking into account the five indicators and the importance they have in the ranking, the Politecnico of Torino is once again between the 121st and the 130th position and so it is in the first quartile of the best universities in the world.

“These results, which have not changed in the percentage of students employed compared to the ones of last year, show how the education of our students is still highly regarded in the labor market. The third position in the world awards our policies, which are successful despite the choice of the Politecnico di Torino to serve the country by welcoming a lot of young people and keeping taxes low. Italy, in fact, really needs graduates if it wants to remain an advanced country (as OECD has just reminded us). Thanks to the actions arranged to professionalize degrees and by proposing a didactics more and more focused on the student and enriched by the presence of entrepreneurs and professionals, we can improve even more this already impressive result”, said the rector Guido Saracco.
