ESCP Europe_Studenti

Collective Project starts again for the third time: twenty student teams of the ESCP Europe Business School will work side by side with companies selected by SocialFare, BTREES and Réseau Entreprendre Piemonte.

Learning how to analyse market trends and compare competitors, planning communication and marketing campaigns, studying a product in order to improve its performance and measure results: these are just some of the activities of the students of the program  Bachelor in Management (BSc) of the business school ESCP Europe. For 5 months they will work as young business consultants side by side with some of the most innovative Italian start-ups.

 

Collective Project starts again for the third time. This year the projects are developed in collaboration with SocialFare, the first Italian centre entirely dedicated to social innovation, the BTREES media agency and entrepreneurial network Réseau Entreprendre Piemonte.

“Learning by doing”, the idea that only practice can really strengthen knowledge, has always been one of the teaching methods of the Business School, open in 1819, among the most prestigious globally, and the Collective Projects represent an opportunity for students to enter in contact with young and dynamic entrepreneurial realities. At the same time the project is for the start-ups an occasion to take intuitions which can come from young people, able to find new business solutions and favour their scalability on the market.

From biomedical to social-eating, from electricity to drones, from eco-friendly coffee capsules to job sharing platforms, the companies involved by the three partners operate in the most varied economic sectors.

Twenty teams will work closely with the 19 start-ups selected by SocialFare, BTREES and Réseau Entreprendre Piemonte with the aim of combining managerial training and entrepreneurship development. Students, with shared tools of Project Management and subject to close verification of work progress to increase their professionalism, will be able to share constructive experiences and personal growth, acquiring at the same time practical, managerial and leadership skills.

 

Of the 118 students of the Bachelor in Management who will take part, a good 82% come from foreign countries (Algeria, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Ecuador, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Japan, India, Iraq, Kosovo, Latvia, Luxemburg, Morocco, Norway, Poland, Peru, Czech Republic, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine, Hungary,  Uruguay, US, Vietnam) and participants are between 19 an 20 years old. At the end of the educational experience, which will be part of the academic assessment, they will have to present the project they have developed.

 

“The campus in Turin is strongly oriented to entrepreneurship and it has some with close relations with the business world. Collective Projects are a further opportunity for our business school to relate with other emerging and innovative entrepreneurial realities of the area. – said Francesco Rettalino, director of ESCP Europe Torino Campus  -. Already in past editions, mentorship programs of international students teams for the start-ups, proved to be an excellent  training, by offering the opportunity to develop new skills and implement what students have learnt during lessons.”

 

SocialFare will follow the development of projects by EcoStalla and Humus; BTREES the ones of Acus, Dynameet and Interlinea; whereas Réseau Entreprendre Piemonte will do the same for the companies Aizoon, Graziadio, Metroconsult and WllCom and the start-ups Biotechware, Gnammo, Goolbook, Immodrone, I-see, Orangogo, Tredivino, Vinnoxygen and Waycap.

 

 

“The partnership between ESCP Europe and SocialFare is going on and growing – said Laura Orestano, CEO of SocialFare – : start-ups with social impact, thanks to SocialFare, can become not only an incentive for the project involvement of the students of the bachelor, but also evidence of their growing interest for these topics. ESCP Europe and SocialFare have to ask themselves how to meet together the demand of knowledge, which is always more focused on social sustainability as result of new business models, which should  integrate the social value as a  fundamental element of the chain of values of any entrepreneurial and organizational action”.

 

“As communication agency, we want to cooperate in the growing of the innovation ecosystem of Piedmont and other areas – said Lorenzo D’Amerio, Innovation strategist of BTREES – . Renewing our participation to this initiative for the third time with ESCP Europe, Social fare and Réseau Entreprendre is a honour and for us it has a double meaning: give students the opportunity to try out their knowledge (in the field of market research, communication analysis, etc) in a practical and direct way, with the SME we work for and, at the meantime, provide an added value to companies we support. This year, we are going to involve in the project Dynameet, Acus and Interlinea”.

 

“We are very happy we have been involved in the ESCP Europe Collective Project  said Giovanni Radis, President of Réseau Entreprendre Piemonte -. The slogan of Rèseau Entreprendre is ‘to create new workplaces, we create entrepreneurs”. It is in this way that we nurture young talents, partnering them with senior entrepreneurs, who can make them grow. We really hope that we can give ESCP Europe students teams the opportunity to be a part of our associated companies and start-ups, because we give great importance to the binomial University/Company”.

Frida, ricerca

What do university teachers of the Università di Torino do when they aren’t teaching?

The curiosity to find out the life of teachers after lessons in classrooms or laboratories, with research, passions and ideas led FRidA – il Forum della Ricerca di Ateneo to come up with a new radio format “Fantastic Teachers and Where to Find Them”, anchored by Giulia Alice Fornaro and Fabiano Catania, in collaboration with Radio 110.

For the first time the passions of teachers besides professorship.

Stories of new projects, successes, challenges and difficulties, personally told by researchers of the Università degli Studi di Torino.

Two guests for the first episode of the new format

The first episode, recorded live at the Salone del Gusto-Terra Madre last 24th September, had two guests. Two “fantastic teachers” decided to take part in the program. The first one was Daniela Fargione, teacher of Anglo-american Literature. Since she found out she is coeliac she has become an expert of “environmental humanism”, because also literature and art can help in becoming aware of environmental problems. The second guest was Stefano Bechis, researcher at the Dipartimento Interateneo di Scienze del Territorio. He wanted to become a musician, but students protests against nuclear power led him to work with solar energy… in Africa!

To listen to their stories on FridA:

Episodio 1 – Sul filo della sostenibilità tra letteratura e cooperazione

Stay tuned… every Friday a new episode!

You can follow the anticipations of next episode (online on 5th October) on the social pages of FridA: Facebook and Instagram

Artissima 2018

“Artissima Experimental Academy” is now open: it is a new educational project, developed in collaboration with COMBO. The project will be open in Turin, Milan, Bologna and Venice in 2019. Artissima Experimental Academy will live longer than the 4 days of the event and it will propose, during the year, some events for art professionals.

The first event of “Artissima Experimental Academy” will take place in the fair from 1st to 4th November 2018 with the project DAF Struttura.

DAF Struttura is a free and experimental school, an environment full of lights and sounds, designed and built by Jan St. Werner, composer and co-founder, in 1993, of the electronic music group Mouse On Mars, in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg, where he teaches Interactive Media / Dynamic Acoustic Research. DAF Struttura, run by Zasha Colah, will be a stage, a sound performance, a space of work, the right place for intellectual thoughts, an archive, a radio station and a gallery and it will host international speakers, researchers, artists, and, above all, 25 students.

This traveling school-facility, modular and experimental and made of corrugated cardboard, will travel on the road till Turin and will be built again at Artissima by the students of the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg. Together with Jan St. Werner there will be two others teachers, Yael Solomonowitz and Marc Matter. There will also be some robotic and light installations, created by Moritz Simon Geist e Matthias Singer.

The teachers and artists collective will explore idiosyncratic methods of production, examine the basic principles of the acusmatic music and of the experimental research and invent new strategies for the presentation and the perception of the sound.

Jan St Werner is an artist and compositor of electronic music in Berlin. Better known as part of his electronic duo Mouse on Mars, Werner has also begun a career as a soloist, publishing, among others, Lithops, Noisemashinetapes e Neuter River. In 2013, St. Werner published Blaze Color Burn, the first of a series of experimental recordings with Fiepblatter and the Thrill Jockey Records, in Chicago. He cooperated with orchestras and groups such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Musikfabrik Köln, the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop and the Ensemble neoN of Norway. During the 2000s, he has been artistic director of the Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM) in Amsterdam. Werner has also been guest lecturer at the department ACT of Arts Culture and Technology of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. He is currently teacher of Interactive Media/ Dynamic Acoustic Research at the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg and he has directed a new field of studies on the future of record production for the New York University of Berlin.

home food

The University of Genoa introduces “home food”, lunch-rooms where students can heat up and eat   comfortably their homemade meals. “Siamo stanchi di mangiare in corridoio, di non trovare posto per studiare, di mangiare cibo freddo” (We’re tired of eating in the corridors, not finding a place to study, and eating cold food”) protested loudly, a few weeks ago, the Spazi-entiti of Turin, a group of students who, ant Luigi Einaudi Campus, denounced the lack of places to eat their homemade meals. While UniTo hasn’t lifted an finger, Genoa is an example to be followed.

The inconvenience of lunchtime is common. In Genoa as in Turin, students must organise their day at university, deciding what and where to eat, fitting in lunchtime between classes. So a few decide to take their food from home: cointainers and tupperwares. Then they begin looking for a place to eat their meal, unbdobtedly cold.

Paolo Comanducci, dean of Unige, has decided “di rispondere alle sempre crescenti richieste degli studenti” (“to answer the ever-growing requests from students”). Home food rooms are equipped with microwave ovens, tables and chairs, sinks for washing hands and free wi-fi. What about Turin? No concrete answer yet, but the University now has an excellent case in point to consider: the University of Genoa.

Enjoy-the-Difference

WHAT IS “ENJOY THE DIFFERENCE” (ETD)?

ENJOY THE DIFFERENCE is a project which started in 2011 from the collaboration between a group of students and professors of the University of Turin, Comune di Torino – Servizio Passpartout and some organizations.

The primary aim of ETD is combining students’ need to find accommodation at a reasonable price with the need of promoting independent life for disabled people, through providing accommodation and improving the social network. The people involved, university students and young people with motor or sensory disabilities, will be housemates on equal terms for a year, during which there won’t be any specific schedule to stick to. The project is for students of the University of Turin and for young disabled people, forming mixed groups of housemates.

WHY “ENJOY THE DIFFERENCE”?

The challenge is to show difference as an opportunity:

  • Because each person has the right at an independent life based on equality, as it is stated in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
  • Because acknowledging differences must be a starting point, where everyone can find opportunities for improvement.
  • In order to grow, to have new experiences, to put oneself to the test while meeting and getting to know other people.

ETD wants to promote a change of perspective: students and disabled young people together to overcome stereotypes and clichés. Disabled young people wanting to have fun and live their life instead of suffering because of their limitations, and students with a sense of responsibility, ideas for the future and the ability to invent new ways of participating, instead of listless and passive people who drag themselves from one classroom to the next.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

All university students and young people with motor or sensory disabilities who are looking for accommodation can apply to become future housemates!
It’s easy, just fill in the form online here: https://www.centrostudidivi.unito.it/progetti/etd

Murazzi Student Zone Re-Start

After being closed for 558 days, shovelling hundreds of kilos of mud, and uncountable hours of work, Murazzi Student Zone is reborn, with a Re-Start that presented the completely renovated study room.

A Re-Start after the flood

A year and a half ago, the Po River burst its banks, flooding the Murazzi arches. It was November 24, 2016, after days of torrential rain, when the Murazzi Student Zone was submerged: the big wooden gate was unhinged and tables, chairs and furniture were carried away.

Since its first opening on May 10, 2013, the Murazzi Student Zone has been a reference point for the student community of Turin and for freelancers, having a large number of talks, book presentations, exhibitions and courses, alongside the study room.

The new Murazzi

After being closed for 558 days, shovelling hundreds of kilos of mud, and uncountable hours of work, the Murazzi Student Zone is reborn, with a Re-Start that presented the completely renovated study room. Since November 2017, in fact, renovation work has restored electrical systems and plaster, as well as entrances, furniture and bathrooms.

Last Wednesday, June 6, 2018, the area was given back to the citizens, or rather, to those “special citizens”  who are the students, as councillor Marco Giusta defined them. “I’m dedicating this day to everyone who made this place become a reference point again, for studying and having fun, and the next exam session makes it an even more important area for all students”, he added. At the presentation press conference there was also Sergio Scamuzzi, vice dean for University Communication of the University of Turin: “If the Murazzi Student Zone didn’t exist, we would have to invent it”, he said.

A part of the city reopening, a place for studying, concentrating and sharing for many students who are getting ready to face the summer exams. An area of 650 square meters, coloured and lively, with a capacity of 270 people and free wi-fi. Everything located under ancient arches, along the constantly-flowing river and the vegetation of city parks.

Murazzi Student Zone is a project promoted by Città di Torino and the service for university guidance StudyinTorino.

 

Study well!

Follow the event on Facebook!

Thanks to the allocation of over 50 thousand euros, the Murazzi Student Zone will be a reference point again, a welcoming and pleasant  space along the Po River where young people and students can meet and study.

Following the disastrous effects of the 2016 flood, which made the building condemned, on November 25, 2017, an exact year later, renovation work began. Today, it finally ended. The electrical systems have been restored, as well as plaster; entrances; furniture and bathrooms.

Making the study room available is a part of the redevelopment of the arches of Murazzi del Po, where especially university students often hang out.
