The University of Siena has just launched the programme for the Millenials.
'Millenials create the future' is a programme funded mainly by the MIUR, Italian Ministry of Research and Education. MIUR is also a major partner of the Programme.
The aim is to support, through multiple initiatives, the Millenials in the definition of the future.
One of the first initiatives is 'Millenials Lab', a series of 10-day workshops where 30-40 Millenials from all over the world gather and discuss on a specific topic and make concrete proposals.
A contribution for travel expenses will be given to participants. University of Siena will host participants without any charge at its residential centers in the centre of Siena.
The first workshop goes from 10-20 May , on the issue of the future of Europe. Europe will collapse without new ideas coming from the youngest.
Workshops will be held at the Santa Chiara Lab.
Santa Chiara Lab is a gorgeous former monastery in the center of Siena who has been transformed in a Innovation Center. It includes also a Fab Lab.
The call for participants is already available on the Web site (this first initiative is limited to European students because of the specific topic).
More information on the Programme is available online.
