About SoSMSE

University of Genova - Physics Department

Welcome to the web page of the SoSMSE Summer School!

The school 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.

To this goal the students will attend to lectures in Economy Management, Project Management, Communication, Technology Valorization, Risk Capital and  Funding, Patent Law, New Methods for Information and Communication, and Personal Professional Project.

At the end of the school the students will be asked to prepare a Personal Professional Project.

Courses will be given in English by professionals and teachers. Lectures of Industrial Experts will be given, too.

The school is devised as an Intensive Program and, therefore, it exposes the students to a rather demanding schedule. However, these efforts will be requited in various ways, for example in terms of soft skills acquired by the students by the end of the courses.

The School will be held in Genoa, a historic city facing the Mediterranean Sea. A nice excursion is foreseen, too, as part of the social program entailed by the School.

We look forward to meeting you in Genoa
