Dear student/graduate of any subject, do you think you know how to reduce food waste from houses? Do you want to contribute in the realization of a new, flexible and sustainable domestic scenario, linked to preparation and conservation of food? THIS CHALLENGE IS WHAT YOU NEED!

Food waste, caused by the great availability of food at home, is not only a problem of economic resources being wasted, but it also affects natural and energy resources, used is every process of the food chain. Food waste is becoming an always more emerging problem and solutions are close to 0.

This challenge wants to find new and more efficient ways for the conservation of food: ways specially designed for every food and to value the impact on domestic habits.

The fridge is an important part of a paradigm based on speed of preparation and meal consumption, which encourages the spread of pre-cooked foods, leading to the problem of the disposal of the packaging. To which scenarios can lead the introduction of new food conservation methods?

What is “C.Lab – Torino” – Contamination Lab?

C.Lab is the first Italian Contamination Lab as the result of the collaboration of two universities

 

 

A space for students and PhD students of the Politecnico and Università di Torino to discover new learning models and develop innovative projects. C.Lab TORINO – Contamination Lab Torino in promoted and financed by the MIUR: it is the first and only one in Italy to be the result of the collaboration of two universities.

A place where students and PhD students of different subjects can meet and where contamination and intersection of knowledge and points of view enables to try new learning models and to develop innovative entrepreneurial or social projects, with a strong connection with the territory. This is the idea that inspired the Contamination Labs: places created inside universities in order to give students “a stimulating environment for the development of innovative entrepreneurial projects”, as the guidelines of the MIUR, which promotes the initiative, explain.

C.Lab TORINO will offer to students of the Università di Torino and Politecnico an informal and creative environment, where they can follow innovative extracurricular university courses, in order to get new skills and propose innovative solutions to the emerging challenges of the territory and markets.

C.Lab TORINO was created to find solutions to the challenges that society, companies and institutions will issue to the 100,000 students of “Torino Città Universitaria”. Through the contamination of different skills , students and PhD students, to which the project is addressed, will receive useful tools to face the labour market from the entrepreneurial point of view, by finding innovative solutions, with the possibility to set up new start ups.

From the educational point of view, C.Lab TORINO proposes labs on computer “challenges”, based on three main policies: proposals of students and PhD students, in a bottom-up logic; proposals of universities, on significant themes for development of territories; proposals of companies, public and private institutions, to face critical themes.

The project C.Lab TORINO is part of the prospect of the Entrepreneurship Education, with the aim of creating social value and promote entrepreneurship culture, innovation and sustainability.

The C.lab TORINO wants to give an important contribution to the development of the city and the territory, expanding the action of universities in Turin, favouring citizens and the local reality.

The conditions of this collaboration between the two universities are the incentive to start productive relations between the main actors of the area, for the sharing of knowledge and skills, aimed at achieving a bigger competitiveness on the international and national market.

With a total funding of about 900,000 euros (of which 300,000 euros from the MIUR and almost 600,000 euros from the Politecnico and Università), C.Lab TORINO is among the 16 winning projects selected among 68 candidates from universities from all over Italy.

When the racket engines were started up, I fulfilled the biggest dream of my life.” For almost 7 months Samantha Cristoforetti has been into orbit around the Earth on the International Space Station. In her book “Diario di un’apprendista astronauta” (Diary of an apprentice astronaut), she tells the busy life on board, with the amazed eyes of who becomes, day after day, a space human being: from science to repairing the toilet, from the arrival of cargo spacecrafts to walks in the space with the colleagues, from alarms to routine, from big events to little discoveries, from  rites to cutting hair. The journey which took her up there was long. Years of absolute dedication from her childhood dream, years spent with suitcases in the hand through three continents, through occasional meetings and  strongly wanted encounters, through languages and cultures, nature and technology, efforts and long waits, joys and sorrows: all in order to learn how to become an astronaut. Samantha Cristoforetti will tell the story of the long journey, which took her to the launching pad and the days she spent on board the Space Station.

Samantha Cristoforetti was born in Milan in 1977 and she grew up in Malé (Trento). She got the master’s degree in Mechanical and Aerospsace Engineering  at the Technical University of Munich, after an Erasmus in Toulouse and an year in Moscow, for the research thesis. From 2001 she attended the Accademia Areonautica (the Italian Air Force Academy), getting a degree in aeronautical science. She got the licence of military pilot in the US and then she was allocated in the 51° Storno di Istrana, on a AM-X aircraft. She is officer of the Areonautica Militare, with the rank of captain. In 2009 she entered the Astronaut Corps of the European Space Agency and in 2012 she was detailed to the Expedition 42/43 on the International Space Station, a long-term mission at the disposal of the Italian Space Agency. The launching of the spacecraft Soyuz took place on 23rd November 2014 from the cosmodrome Baikonur, in Kazakhstan. Samantha spent 200 days in space, sharing her experience trough her logbook and on Twitter (@Astrosamantha).

 

The meeting is organized by the Politecnico di Torino and Unione Industriale di Torino, in collaboration with ASI, ESA and the publishing house La nave di Teseo. Moderator: Michele Bellone, scientific journalist.

codice fiscale
A desk for foreign students

 

From today, September 3rd, to September 21st will be set up the temporary desk for the issue of the fiscal code to foreign students, who are arriving for the new academic year. Thanks to an agreement between the university and the Italian Agency of Revenue (Agenzia delle Entrate), also in 2018 newly enrolled foreign students will be able to integrate in Italy more easily.

In this way, in fact, foreign citizens who arrive in Turin for studying, teaching or research will be able to get the fiscal code straight in Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, at the enrolment office of the Politecnico di Torino, without going to the Italian Agency of Revenue. This is the second year the students have been given this opportunity, thanks to the good results of last year: in 2017, in fact, during 12 days in which the desk was open, 480 people used this service.

Getting a fiscal code is essential for a stay in Italy: not only is it the first step to enrol in university, but it is also useful for other practical aspects such as signing a rental contract, purchase of a SIM card for you telephone and much more.

The temporary desk will be open until 21st September 2018, from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
