Luiss University, in collaboration with Dire and Association Le Reseau, organises a series of workshops on the topics of Innovation and Sustainability, Branding and Made in Italy, Leadership and Food Security organised as part of the third edition of the Luiss Diaspora Programme. Also explored in depth will be the issue of Rome’s Expo 2030 candidacy and the very valuable contribution that diasporas can provide in supporting it.
The Programme was first launched in January 2021, after a phase of concept development and context analysis, but also in response to the needs of the University and its associated community to be able to count on the constant growth and exchange of opportunities fostered by the multi-ethnic context. The idea, through the activities of the Diasporas Program, is to value communities of foreign origin by helping to give them visibility.
The third edition, which officially kicked off on 23 February last expands on a key element for the University and for the growth of the various stakeholders involved, namely research. The new structuring and organization of the program in the form of Research Seminars as well as Master Classes occurred in response to the need to address certain issues within the research framework and emphasizes the need to build bridges of intellectual collaboration on cutting-edge topics.
We interviewed Marco Francesco Mazzù, Professor of Marketing and Head of International Orientation at Luiss Guido Carli.
