offered by the School of Innovation

SOI has been offering a package of courses to mainly Master (“laurea magistrale” and Master) and PhD students from different departments. This tailor-made package of course provides students with relevant tools to analyze and promote innovation processes in technical, scientific, social and humanistic fields. SOI students also use interdisciplinary laboratories, which facilitate the entrepreneurial vision of innovation.

The 12 ECTS must contain:

  • at least 2 ECTS from the category “Essentials”
  • at least 2 ECTS from the category “Domain”
  • at least 4 ECTS from the category “Specialization”

Participation is mandatory for at least 80%.

  • SOI free mover: if you just select a few courses.
  • SOI full student: if you aim at the final certification.
