The school has come to its twelth edition, having started in 2009 as a Lifelong Learning Programme in the Erasmus Programme (2009-2014), now continuing in a self financed mode, as envisaged by the European Commission (EC).
SoSMSE deals with the necessity to fill the gap between the scientific and technical knowledge acquired by the students at the University, on the one hand, and the requests they will have to face in their work career either in academic institutions or industry, on the other hand: in other words with the necessity to develop entrepreneurship. This last issue continues to be a pivotal point for the EC, which has recently launched The Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan.
To this goal the students will attend to lectures in Economy Management, Project Management, Communication and Pitching, Technology Valorisation, Risk Capital and Funding, Patent Law, New Methods for Information and Communication, and Personal Professional Project.
All the lecturers are scientists and engineers who have learned the subject they teach hands-on, in years of experience, which gives a uniquely focussed perspective to their lectures.
