International Education Projects

The University of Bologna partners with five dynamic international consortia, known as Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).

Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) are promoted by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). These KICs’ education programmes have the objective to stimulate and deploy the knowledge triangle (networking among education institutions, research organisations and business) via innovative education projects.

Each KIC comprises a consortium of representatives drawn from industry, the academic world and research. Their actions enable students to participate in advanced, international education projects on topics addressed by those KICs in which the University of Bologna is a partner.
