To Venice it is born Centro Studi and Ricerca on the portualità

The Harbour Authority of Venice and the Venetian university athenaeums House Foscari and IUAV has undersigned a convention for the constitution of Centro Studi and Ricerca on the portualità, a new structure of study and search that will take care of port competition, coordination and cooperation, new systems of governance and planning participated, management of the conflicts, logistic integration between ports and other nodes of the transport.

Between the first initiatives of the Center figure a master in Port Economics and Management (PEM) that it will have beginning the next January and that is organized jointly between Harbour Authority and University House Foscari, realized from the House Foscari Challenge School and directed from professor Stefano Soriani. The master international is proposed to form highly specialistic professional figures, with necessary the managerial competences to the economic, territorial and environmental management of the ports. The initiative, entirely in English - they have evidenced the promoters - overwhelms a gap of the national and international formative market that in the field of the logistics centralizes the attention or on the side sea or the side earth, rather than to concentrate itself on the crucial node that is found to face the pressures on the two foreheads. The course enjoys the sponsorship and the collaboration of ESPO (European Sea Port Organisation) the association that reunites the European ports, and of Ferport, the European federation of the terminalisti: the two main associations of the harbour world will be involved in fact are in the seminaries collaterals that will take place in the course of the year that, at a later time, in order to offer to internship and formative experiences to the students of the master.

“the PEM - the chancellor of House Foscari has explained, Carlo Carraro - is a master international entirely in English language that composes a articulater and complex spread plan from House Foscari with the Harbour Authority. This plan previews the birth of a real Center of studies and university search dedicated to the thematic ones of the portualità. Post-bachelor is an initiative of excellence in the panorama of the university formation. The teacher come from our athenaeum, but we have previewed also a collaboration with teacher of the Iuav and Italian and foreign main experts of the university, not to case of university of great harbour cities like Antwerp and Rotterdam, or of university of the Mediterranean strongly specialized in the harbour and marine studies, like the University of Aegeus. It is formative producing of excellence with modules that preview the collaboration of experts and coming teacher of the world of the harbour enterprises and the marine and railway transport so to offer the contact directed with the professionals of the field as well as with the academic world and of the search. They are sure - it has concluded Carraro - than this new opportunity will succeed to offer to new chance occupations to our students, is in Italy that abroad”.

“In the investigations carried out from the Harbour Authority and House Foscari - it has added the president of the harbour agency of Venice, Paolo Costa - we have found an increasing question of formation advanced in this field above all in the emergent Countries that appear on the sea: pack-saddles to think to the ports of the Africa North and the Middle East or to those Indians and of the Asian south-east, on which the governments head in order to make to make to the Country a quality jump in the international commerce. Draft for we of the partner with which we converse daily that they need of manager with advanced formation and that international truths have felt which to make reference. These - it has specified - the motivations that they have pushed to us to collaborate with House Foscari in order to set foot in a master university able to equip to future port manager of the instruments necessary to win the difficult challenges that it is found to face the field. They are sure that between they someone will decide to operate to Venice, whose future of increase it has need of expert managers with a vision of wide breath”.

“Iuav, for how much of its competence - the chancellor of the Iuav University has said, Amerigo Restucci - it intends to join in the Center studies with the Master of the level in “Logistics and transports - Expert in the analysis, planning and appraisal of the systems of logistics and transport for the internationalization of the enterprises”, already to its sixth edition and that by three years it is proposed jointly to the Harbour Authority - CFLI Intermodal Consortium Logistic Formation. The objective of the formative participation - Restucci has remembered - is that to develop to strong professional competences in the fields of the logistics and the transports intended like strategic fields for the competitiveness of the enterprises and therefore legacy to objectives of economic development of the territory. The distance is characterized in the first place for a strong formed centered didactic structuring on a faculty mixed from university teacher and numerous external experts of elevated profile, able, on one side, to supply to the students the necessary cultural background and the necessary methodological instrumentation (didactic traditional), and, from the other side, “to carry in classroom” the excellence of the experiences of the field (studies of case, seminaries, etc). Ulterior characterizing element is represented by the strait tie with really involved external a selected number of partner in the formative activities and professionalizing, in particular for how much it concerns the organization of the internships. In this way - it has emphasized - the formative distance constitutes, in an optical of continuous formation, a “bridge” between the world of the university formation and the world of the enterprises supplying to the participants an elevated level and formative content that returns them suitable to pursue a professional distance of high profile”.
