The Teaching in the Field agenda promotes interaction between Politecnico’s educational mission and local communities, in order to establish a synergy between learning, action and field experience.
Students and lecturers get out of the classroom and come in close contact with social actors, employing their own skills and capabilities to seek solutions to actual problems.
Educational proposals are drawn up by the Polisocial team together with teaching staff from the Politecnico, in close cooperation with a wide network of civil society organisations, public institutions, social foundations and companies.
As regards “Cooperation and Development“, Polisocial encourages sustainable and equitable development practices internationally, especially in local contexts, while promoting an interdisciplinary culture of cooperation, social innovation and responsibility.
Polisocial supports cooperation projects promoted by the Politecnico di Milano, particularly those in the field of technological cooperation for an autonomous and local development, in line with our University’s identity.
Cooperation and Development at the Politecnico also means providing the community of researchers, lecturers and students with an opportunity to do research and experimentation on the ground, in foreign countries, and often in unconventional fields.
