Students and teachers, outside the classroom, come in very close contact with social actors, using their skills and capabilities to solve concrete problems.

Teaching proposals are elaborated by Polisocial’s team and Teachers of the Politecnico di Milano in a close collaboration with a wide network of associations and organisations, public institutions, foundations and companies with a social purpose.

Polisocial promotes responsible practices of sustainable and equitable development in local and international settings, reflecting an interdisciplinary culture of social innovation and cooperation for development.

This line of activity intends to support the design and implementation of projects and programmes in the field of International Development Cooperation. Polisocial promotes technological cooperation to foster local independent development, creating experimentation and scientific research opportunities in unconventional and international arenas.

“Polisocial Award” rewards Politecnico best research projects with social purposes.

The projects are supported by 5×1000 fund raising campaign of the Politecnico di Milano.
