Focus on enhancing talent and a new way of doing research working together with Universities

“Telecom Italia has launched a new model for relations with Universities which focuses on enhancing talent and a new way of doing research working together with Universities (even physically, setting up joint workshops) for the industrial transfer of innovation. Up to now we set up more than 330 high apprenticeship contracts for students soon to graduate in engineering or economics and we financed around 130 doctorate scholarships and trained more than 50 graduates (with specialist degrees) in 3 II level Master's degree courses completely financed by Telecom Italia”. Ida Sirolli, People Value - Telecom Italia

Addressed to over 160 graduates with a Degree in Engineering and Economics, the aim is to acquire highly skilled people interested in pursuing high level university research on specific projects of interest to the company.

The students are working on research projects in groups of three, formed by two engineers and one economist, in order to ensure an interdisciplinary approach and promote team work, with support of over 70 tutors.
