While waiting for the First National Forum of Cooperation, on Monday, October 2 a new stage of the project "International cooperation - Our future in the world" will be held in Sassari. The Italian Director of the Agency for Development Cooperation, Laura Frigenti is currently visiting Italian universities to provide professional advice for young people interested in international cooperation and provide them with the tools to meet market demand. The director will meet the students of the University of Sassari at 3.00 pm at the SEGNI classroom in the Viale Mancini department.

This national tour includes a series of "Info-days on job opportunities in the field of International Cooperation".

Job opportunities will be presented to the youth and participants will be informed on how to apply for scholarships offered by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) for the year 2018.

These meetings are part of the process leading to the First National Forum of Cooperation. Ideas and initiatives of special interest will be explored and prepared to be discussed during the Forum to boost international cooperation.

In Sassari, this meeting is particularly important as it will be held during the inauguration of the three-year degree course on "Safety and international cooperation": a new training program the University of Sassari launched for first time at national level in 2016/2017.
