Raffles Milano - International Fashion and Design School

Italy Milan October 2018

The School that wasn't there. The one that the market had been demanding for such a long time. The one that breaks down the walls between fashion and design, between teacher and student, between past and future. The one that thinks and speaks in the language of the 14 countries in which it operates. The one in order to bring up the best students has chosen the best maestros. The school which is now here. The one where they teach you to face up to challenges that nobody has… [+] even thought about yet. The one where you test yourself to your limits and learn to play your side of the game...with the sense of the limits. The one where they speak your language... and another 13 too! The one you will never one to leave. Raffles Milano A new fashion and design school in Milan? Yes, and its name is Raffles Milano. A school with an unconventional spirit and method. A school designed for students who intend to look the future straight in the eye. And above all, a school that has gathered together a formidable team of lecturers, in many cases leading names on the international style and design scene. On the starting blocks, there are our Three-year Courses in Product design, Visual design, and Fashion design, in Italian and English, and a series of Masters to learn from the leaders. The strength of a network with no boundaries Raffles Milano comes to strengthen the existing international Raffles Group network, established more than 25 years ago in Singapore and now expanding energetically, with 26 colleges in 14 countries. The decision to include ‘Milano’ in the name reflects our striving for excellence and our profound affinity with a city that has long been recognized as the world capital of design culture. A school that gives a lot more The education method used by Raffles Milano draws its inspiration from the practice of the Renaissance workshop and aims at doing real work on real projects for real clients. From day one, lecturers and students are involved in a relationship with no separating walls. Lecturer-student dialogue, a constant quest for new paths and secure foundations for a process of individual and team growth that trains students for tomorrow by preparing them to experience it as a natural evolution of today. Students learn to measure up to the dreams and aspirations of the future. A school that is already a job Raffles Milano is the school that was not there, but that companies have been demanding for such a long time, just as strong in the field of practice as in the area of theory. All our projects have a purpose, a context, a stock of resources, a background of previous experience, a series of reasons why they happen and, of course, a series of walls to break through. This is what our students breathe in with every step they take. The foundation stone of our didactic paths is the working world. In our Three-year Courses, students learn by doing, achieving the closest bond between theory and practice, between idea and execution. In our Master's courses, students meet directly with the leading names in the market in the lecture room and have the chance to work with them side by side. [-]

France Caen Italy Padua Catania Spain Seville Madrid Barcelona Salamanca September 2018 + 5 more

Consortium Partners French part of the consortium University of Caen Normandie (UNICAEN), founded in the XVth century, hosts nowadays 26000 students in different branches. Its key feature in the context of the present project is twofold. First, its close links with GANIL. GANIL, including the high-intensity rare ion facility SPIRAL2 under construction, is one of the four largest laboratories in the world dedicated to research using ion beams. SPIRAL2 is complemented by two… [+] equipment of excellence (EQUIPEX), the next-generation spectrometer S3 and the experimental room for physics at low energy DESIR, both selected and financed by the National Agency of Research (ANR), led by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Since the very beginning, GANIL has actively participated in European projects in which it cooperates with many laboratories from the European Union and beyond. In addition, Caen University is also strongly linked to the project ARCHADE (resource and research center in hadrontherapy) launched in 2014. This center will have two independent superconductor cyclotrons: a proton therapy cyclotron for treatment starting operation in 2018, and a C400 cyclotron for ion acceleration up to Carbon for research purposes in hadrontherapy (physics, radiobiology, and clinic aspects), with first beams available in 2021. The physicists implied in the Consortium are responsible for the research programs in physics at ARCHADE as well as in the interdisciplinary programs for radiotherapy treatments. Italian part of the consortium The University of Padova has a long and well-established history in Nuclear Physics research which is strongly related to the Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (LNL) that is one of the four national labs of the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). The mission is to perform basic research in nuclear physics and nuclear-astrophysics, together with applications of nuclear technologies. More than 800 scientists from all over the world are involved in the ongoing research programs. Every day about 250 people work at LNL, half of them being INFN employees (physicists, engineers, technicians....) the remaining half coming from universities and research institutions in Italy and abroad. Strength points are the development of particle accelerators and of nuclear radiation detectors. LNL has been recognized at European level as a Research Infrastructure with Transnational Access. In addition, the Nuclear Research groups of Padova University have expertise on the nuclear structure at the limits of spin and isospin, nuclear reaction dynamics at low, intermediate and ultra-relativistic energies, nuclear astrophysics and civil security applications of nuclear physics. Padova is an 800-year-old institution with a long-standing tradition of scientific excellence and a commitment to freedom and diversity. The University of Catania is one of the first Universities in Italy, founded in 1433. It is closely related to the INFN unit in Catania and to the Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS). LNS is one of the four national laboratories of INFN. Founded in 1976 it currently employs about 130 people (researcher and technicians) and associates about 130 people among professors, researcher, Ph.D. and Diploma students from the University. It is an advanced development center for technology and instrumentation. The research activity is mainly devoted to the study of structure and reaction of atomic nuclei by means of both a Tandem and a Superconducting Cyclotron, in collaboration with more than 700 hundreds researchers coming from Italy as well as several European and non-European countries. A Tandem accelerator allows an intense activity in Nuclear Astrophysics measuring the cross section of interest for fusion nuclear energy and stellar nucleosynthesis (ASFIN2 project). Among the new projects in fundamental research, it is also worth mentioning a submarine laboratory installed at 2000m depth offshore from Catania, to be used for R&D related inside the KM3NET project. UniCT and INFN at CT and LNS, beyond the experiments at the frontier of the Nuclear Physics, are strongly active in several aspects of Applied Nuclear Physics such as accelerators technology, cultural heritage and Archaeometry with non –destructive techniques (LANDIS and PH3DRA labs), monitoring of Nuclear Waste, Laser Physics for Nuclear Fusion plasma and above all in Nuclear Medicine with a centre for eye-melanoma therapy and the projects CATANA, ELIMED, SCENT (see Form A.1.4). The students of EMJMD will be allowed to profit also from an on-going agreement between LNS and Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria Policlinico di Catania to have a direct experience of applied nuclear medicine. Spanish part of the consortium The University of Seville was founded in the late 1460´s. Today is one of the largest Spanish Universities with a number of students around 70000. it currently employs about 4000 people (including teaching staff, researchers, and technicians). Concerning Nuclear Physics it has expert scholars on theoretical nuclear reactions, applications Nuclear Physics to Environment, Medicine, Art and Archeometry, and analysis and characterization of Materials.

It is provided with two sources: a plasma source for gaseous substances and a sputtering source for obtaining practically any element of the periodic table from a solid target. The University of Barcelona was founded in 1450. Presently it has more than 80000 students and around 5000 people in the teaching staff. Concerning Nuclear Physics, it has expert scholars on many-body problems, theoretical astrophysics, and hadronic physics. It is linked to the accelerator ALBA which is a facility co-financed by the Spanish government and the Catalan government. It is a new generation of the synchrotron. ALBA is a circular-shaped machine, called a synchrotron, that uses arrays of magnets, called insertion devices to generate bright beams of synchrotron light. There are research lines on Accelerator Computing, Engineering, Experiments on material science mainly. University Complutense of Madrid (UCM) was founded in 1822. It is a large University with around 80000 students and 6000 people in the teaching staff. In 2009 the Ministry of Education awarded the highest mention "International Campus of Excellence (IEC)" to UCM. Concerning Nuclear Physics, it has expert scholars on theoretical nuclear structure, experimental nuclear physics, applications of nuclear physics to medicine and energy sources, and they are very actively engaged in experimental physics programs at ISOLDE@CERN (link sends e-mail), GSI (Germany) and ILL (France). UCM has close connections to CIEMAT (Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas) which is a public research body assigned to the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness focusing on energy and environment and the technologies related to them. Of particular interest for our EMJMD is the Thermonuclear Fusion Device TJ-II which is a heliac-type stellarator, which produces magnetically-confined fusion plasmas. The University of Salamanca was founded in 1218. It has around 35000 students and 2500 people in the teaching staff. Concerning Nuclear Physics, it has expert scholars on theoretical weak interactions and hadronic physics, experimental nuclear physics and lasers.

Applications in photonuclear physics, plasma physics, and proton therapy, among others. The EMJMD project will fully benefit from the complementary specializations of the partners. Committees Financial tasks will be mainly managed by the University of Seville as coordinating partner. For the rest of the tasks, four committees will be created in order to resolve the different issues related to the EMJMD. The committees are: Academic Committee: it is responsible for the correct implementation of the EMJMD and the general manager. It will be formed by one local academic of each full partner (universities), two persons from the associated partners, and one student from the coordinating institution. In addition, it is in charge of examination methods and the organization of the Master Thesis work. It is also responsible for the contents of the NuPhys EMJMD. This committee will have 3 sub-committees (one at each country). Each sub-committee will be presided by the academic that is part of the Academic committee plus two academics that belong to their own universities. The aim of the sub-committees will be to solve all the academic issues within their own university. The Academic Committee will also be in charge of obtaining the necessary number of internships for the training period in a company for all the students participating in the NuPhys EMJMD. The academic committee will also be responsible for the final assignment the internships among all the students according to the grading obtained by the students in the lecturing period, their preferences and the advice of the local coordinator in contact with students. Another important aim of this committee is to develop a joint and well-structured curriculum for the EMJMD that takes into account the best expertise of every full partner and the present needs of companies related to Nuclear Physics. NuPhys Secretariat: it is the executive board, in charge of executive management, communication with EACEA, administrative and financial management. It is located at the coordinating institution and is composed by the Consortium coordinator, one administrative assistant and supported by Contact Point EMUS. It is in contact with local administrative staff at partner institutions and supervises the exchange of students documents among partners.

IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca

Italy Lucca October 2018

School IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca is a public graduate school and research institute that focuses on the analysis of economic, societal, technological and cultural systems. The School has been under the direction of Prof. Pietro Pietrini since November of 2015. Since IMT’s institution by ministerial decree of November 18th 2005, the School has distinguished itself thanks to the quality and innovativeness of its research and doctoral program and its interdisciplinary n… [+] ature, characterized by the complementarity and discourse between methodologies drawn from economics, engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, physics, archeology, art history and the analysis and management of cultural heritage. The fusion between art and technology is also reflected in the School state-of-the-art campus, located principally in the newly restored San Francesco Complex. The entire campus is found within the historic city center of Lucca, which is completely surrounded by fully-intact Renaissance-era walls. The campus includes spaces for research and laboratories, courses, and living and recreation. The campus is completed by the IMT Library, which offers a plethora of resources and offers additional working and research areas for the IMT community, and the city of Lucca in general. Research and Educational Mission IMT researchers carry out cutting-edge methodological research to generate knowledge, apply knowledge to solve problems of an economic, industrial, societal and cultural nature, and transmit knowledge through highly specialized graduate courses and seminars. Starting from the overlying fundamental principle of scientific excellence, which applies to all areas and levels of the IMT research community, the School distinguishes itself through its interdisciplinary orientation to develop innovative research and acquire greater international visibility. The School’s interdisciplinary research program is articulated in four scientific macro-areas: Economics, Management Science, and Complex systems; Computer science and Systems engineering; Cognitive and Social Neuroscience; Cultural heritage. The School’s interdisciplinary research program is articulated in four scientific macro-areas of Economics Management science and Complex systems, Computer science, Systems engineering, Cultural heritage, with an additional area of Political History The School’s research is further organized into distinct yet multidisciplinary research units (RU). Most RUs are characterized by a pyramidal structure where the vertex is occupied by a prominent senior researcher, junior faculty members constitute the intermediate level, and the base is formed by a small group of doctoral students, actively contributing to the research as part of their studies. Other RUs instead are structured in a multipolar fashion, with highly specialized research centered on thematic nuclei and the contribution of diverse methodologies. The work carried out in the research units is intimately linked to IMT’s multidisciplinary Ph.D. program, which provides a unique and characteristic patrimony of competences within the broad framework of the analysis and management of a plurality of systems. The program is articulated in curricula that share common core courses and provide specialized training in the specific discipline of the doctoral thesis. At the end of the program, students can successfully face appointments in and outside academia because of their ability to recognize and solve new and increasingly complex problems.The hunger to learn, analyze and resolve problems, the ability to embrace an approach to problem-solving that is not limited by the confines of any single discipline, and the aptitude to quickly familiarize oneself with the tools and methods in fields outside of one’s own are the three talents that IMT aims to cultivate in its doctoral students. IMT receives thousands of applications every year for the program from every corner of the globe. Impact IMT makes an impact at various levels and in multiple spheres. In terms of research, despite its relatively young age, IMT already enjoys many concrete successes, hosting a variety of international, European and national research projects which account for nearly half of its yearly budget. Furthermore, the high scientific quality of the School's professors and researchers has recently been certified by the ANVUR (National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes). IMT obtained an excellent result, ranking first in area 13 “economics and statistics”, with an average score of 0.91/1 for the publications presented. Also taking into account the other scientific areas of the School, the comprehensive average score was 0.92/1, with an average of 0.98/1 in the areas of computer science, engineering, and mathematics. This represents an extraordinary success, as similar results were not achieved by any other university in all 14 of the areas evaluated. Research at IMT is also carried out in close collaboration with the local territory through various initiatives and projects in a variety of areas (tissue industry, healthcare industry, marine industry, ICT for smart cities and many others) in collaboration with the municipality of Lucca. IMT promotes higher education and research apprenticeships Companies can contact to IMT to activate higher education and research apprenticeship agreements with students that have been deemed eligible to enroll in IMT's Ph.D. program. Companies can also contact the School with profiles of interest (that are also in line with IMT's research agenda) to advertise in the next Ph.D. program call. More info on apprenticeships page. The School continues reinforcing its impact on the territory by intensifying its collaborations with businesses, public entities, institutions, schools and by continuing the successful OPEN IMT Conferences program of open-door cultural and scientific events.

University of Trento School of International Studies

Italy Trento October 2018

About our School Today, the phenomena of globalization and integration are pervasive and relevant. They are often perceived, on the one hand, as being distant, fragmentary and sometimes threatening, and, on the other, as providing opportunities for individual nations or groups of nations. Such ambivalence presents a formidable challenge to the ruling classes and to a national public opinion, a challenge that cannot be answered without the kind of integrated responses and… [+] interpretive approaches possible only within a multidisciplinary context. The University of Trento has responded to this challenge by promoting research, education and professional training in the field of international studies through the School of International Studies (SIS). Established in 2001 thanks to the close and continued collaboration between its component Faculties (now Departments) of Law, Economics, Sociology and Arts & Humanities, the School turned into a Centre of the University in 2012. The School is the only Graduate School in Italy offering advanced courses in International Studies for students who completed a three-year undergraduate degree. It organizes a two-year Master’s programme in European and International Studies – Laura Magistrale in Studi Europei e Internazionali (MEIS), a two-year Master's programme in International Security Studies - Laura Magistrale in Studi sulla Sicurezza Internazionale (MISS) and a three-year Doctoral programme in International Studies. These Graduate programmes form a natural continuation of the three-year undergraduate degrees offered by the School’s participating Faculties/Departments in the field of International Studies. As an advanced institute of interdisciplinary studies, the School of International Studies is unparalleled in Italy and, in the few years since its inception, has become a leading reference point in Europe for graduate teaching and research in Economics, Law, and Politics. Graduates have gone on to senior positions in international arenas as well as academic careers with postdoctoral and tenured positions in Europe and abroad. The School is a vibrant academic environment. Students, faculty members, post-doc researchers and visiting professors from all over the world participate in the School’s teaching and research activities. The School hosts international conferences on subjects ranging from the global economic order to topics related to the European Union, from international security to international institutions. These events complement the rich programme of guest speakers, including both academics and professional practitioners, and visiting researchers, all contributing to the creation of a stimulating intellectual community. The Departments of the University of Trento involved in the School are: Economics and management Faculty of Law Arts and humanities Sociology and Social Research [-]
