Presentation of the Summer School in China – Edition 2012

Il 16 maggio viene presentata ufficialmente la settima edizione della [apre una nuova finestra] Summer School in Cina/Executive Education Training Program[apre una nuova finestra] che si terrà nell’estate 2012 presso la Peking University School of Government, Beijing (PRC).

All’evento prendono parte alcuni dei partecipanti alle precedenti edizioni (2006-2011) e sono in programma testimonianze in video di chi ha trovato lavoro in Cina e racconta la sua esperienza direttamente dal Paese del Sol Levante.

Rivolta in particolare a studenti e laureati di scienze politiche, economia, lingue, filosofia, scienze ambientali e ingegneria, la Summer School è però aperta agli studenti di qualsiasi disciplina.

In  programma per la nuova edizione due curricula paralleli: “Summer Institute on Climate Change and Environmental Protection” (SICCEP)” e “Summer Institute on Intellectual Property Rights and China” (IP-China). Il primo affronta i temi del cambiamento climatico e della protezione dell’ambiente, mentre il secondo si focalizza sulla proprietà  intellettuale e il trasferimento tecnologico.

Entrambi i curricula sono riconosciuti dal Consiglio nazionale forense come attività formative nell’ambito della formazione obbligatoria per gli avvocati, con l’attribuzione di 24 crediti formativi.

Le domande di partecipazione vanno presentate entro il 25 maggio via mail all’indirizzo summerlawinstitutesuzhou@unimi.it a cui si può scrivere anche per ottenere tutte le informazioni. I partecipanti all’edizione 2012 attualmente iscritti provengono, oltre che dall’Italia, da molti paesi europei e asiatici,  dal continente africano e dal Sudamerica.

La Summer School in China – Executive Education Training Program è nata dalla collaborazione tra diverse università europee. Oltre al nostro dipartimento di Diritto pubblico, internazionale ed europeo e Diritto processuale civile,alla Cattedra di Diritto del commercio internazionale di Nerina Boschiero e alla cattedra di diritto comparato di Antonio Gambaro sono infatti coinvolte alcune facoltà, dipartimenti e cattedre umanistiche, giuridiche ed economiche delle università di: Torino, Piemonte Orientale, Pavia, Insubria, Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Lund, Provence Aix Marseille e Carlos III de Madrid.

Questa rete di partner universitari ha presentato lo scorso anno un progetto dal titolo “GOING EAST. Enhancing Asian research cooperation in higher education for the challenges of global. Id. 2011/1410” finanziato dalla Fondazione Cariplo, che garantisce a ogni ente partner il finanziamento di due borse di studio a favore dei loro studenti che partecipano alla Summer School in China.

La Summer School in Cina (diretta da Paolo Farah) è diventata parte integrante dell’attività di internazionalizzazione prevista dal progetto – coordinato da Barbara Pozzo dell’Universita Insubria e da Piercarlo Rossi dell’Università del Piemonte Orientale – per favorire la mobilità di docenti e ricercatori e le relazione con i paesi emergenti.

16 maggio, ore 12.30, aula 304, via Festa del Perdono 7.
