Sponsoring the University or a structure

Sponsorships are permitted in order to aid the University’s pursuit of its institutional purposes, with the exclusion of all forms of conflict of interest between the institutional activities of the University and the activities of the sponsor(s), or for obtaining cost savings and/or new income for the University.

The University and its structures associates its image with that of the sponsor through sponsorship contracts in order to support:

  • Cultural events organised by the University and/or its Departments

  • The supply of works, goods and services as laid down in the Code of Public Contracts (Italian Legislative Decree 50/2016) 

  • Services provided by the University to its own internal and external users as part of its institutional activities.

Sponsorship contracts may be signed with one or more private and public parties, businesses, foundations and non-profit associations.

The visibility of the sponsors is permitted exclusively within the sponsored event.

Sponsorship proposals are assessed by the University’s Institutional Brand and Sponsorships Board.

Sponsorship proposals must be sent to ARTEC – Settore Affari generali e coordinamento fundraising per la Terza Missione, .

Technical sponsorships pertaining to the supply of products identical or similar to those in the University’s merchandising collection

Each technical sponsorship proposal pertaining to the supply of products that are identical or similar to those in the merchandising collection on which the sponsor proposes to place the University’s Brand – or a more specific brand (campus, department, etc.) – associated with their own, must be submitted to Alma Mater Foundation (FAM), which holds the licence to create merchandising with the University’s Brand. 

FAM will evaluate each individual case in order to ensure that the sponsorship is compatible with agreements in place with third parties for the use of the University’s Brand on merchandise.
