Offices in the World, Ca’ Foscari inaugurates Moscow Information Corner

After Suzhou and Baku, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice inaugurated a new milestone of its internationalization process: the Ca’ Foscari Moscow Information Corner, hosted by the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, began its official activity on Wednesday June 19.

The inauguration ceremony, with the participation of Rector Michele Bugliesi, has been the right occasion to present the mission of this new Russian corner and the internationalization goals in Ca’ Foscari’s strategic plan for 2020, which involve shaping and nurturing a thoroughly international profile through an active global presence

The collaboration between our University and the Higher School of Economics began in 2012, with a first partnership agreement that later brought to the launch of an exchange program for students. This cooperation is now about to be further consolidated thanks to the on-site presence of the latest Ca’ Foscari representative office, that will help open new possibilities in fields like joint research and internship offers for students.

The first practical steps of the Ca’ Foscari Moscow Information Corner will involve the organization of intercultural master classes by a Ca’ Foscari doctoral student for HSE students studying Italian,  while in Venice, students from HSE Lyceum will be involved in the Discover Ca’ Foscari Week, a summer orientation experience organized for international high school students on Ca’ Foscari’s campuses.

Future projects will revolve around important initiatives such as the Erasmus+ ICM program for student, faculty and admin staff and the creation of a new double degree program in Modern Asian Studies.
