Erratum to: The Agreement Between Columbia Law School of New York and the Faculty of Law of Sapienza University of Rome

Developing a Project with High Level Expectations

Imagining to edit a book about the connections between Sapienza and the American and Canadian Universities with which it has agreements is a very ambitious project indeed. The aim of this book is twofold. First is a collection of all agreements and projects in order to show the level of cooperation of Sapienza University with American and Canadian Universities. Second is a sort of “business card” of Sapienza in order to be shown to other universities and expand our connections.

Canadian Experience with University of British Columbia

As many of us are aware, international exchanges and participations between Universities and their scholars, provide significant benefits within the cultural, scientific and social aspects. Sapienza University of Rome is making an effort to expand its program to encourage further such exchanges with Universities on a worldwide basis, in the hope that its scholars may continue to derive such benefits.

International Cooperation of Sapienza University

University education represents the last and the highest level of education in a student’s career. One of its distinctive elements, in comparison to other levels of formation is that on this very phase, for the first time during the study period, one tries to make the theoretical knowledge go outside the university and make the student take his first steps in the real world. This appears to be of very high importance especially nowadays when there are no limits for communication and travelling, which hampered this process in the past. As for students, university education incites professors and researchers to discuss and exchange with colleagues their theories, elaborated outside the national borders, amplifying the impact of their offer on the process of “culture” formation and transforming it into a highly requested competence just when young people enter the labor market. Thus facing external realities has more value when perceived through foreign institutions, information and experience, both intellectually and physically different from one’s academic origin.

The Cooperation Between Italy and the United States

The Cooperation Between Canada and Italy

The Embassy of Canada to Italy is honoured to have the opportunity thanks to this publication to highlight the strong ties that exist between Canada and Italy. The academic world is a source of strength and of great collaboration between our two countries. To date more than 170 agreements have been signed between Italian and Canadian universities. This is only an indicative number of course, formal and informal ties, joint initiatives and projects between institutions in our two countries continue to flourish thanks to a growing awareness of the potential represented by such collaborations. As H. E. Peter McGovern, Ambassador of Canada to Italy recently stated in reference to the latest edition of the Canada-Italy Innovation Award, an Embassy initiative that exactly celebrates these types of connections between our research institutes: “Italy’s interest in Canada is a great source of pride for us and an incentive to further strengthen our commitment towards reciprocal exchanges in the field of Science and Technology and Innovation thereby stimulating the economic development and prosperity of our two countries. When the Comprehensive Trade and Economic Agreement (CETA) between Europe and Canada comes into force it will become even easier to build these important bridges between Canada and Italy in the academic, research and innovation sectors.”

The Honors Center of Italian Universities: H2CU

The recent reform of the Italian university system allows students to easily continue their education on an international level and to acquire a degree abroad with no bureaucratic or administrative difficulties. International cultural exchanges in the field of research should now be considered a necessity. Projects promoted with the objective of internationalizing research have been innumerable. The multiplication of these exchanges is so vast that it is difficult to establish a record of formal and informal activities that have brought doctoral students, postdocs, researchers and faculty members to other countries. The aim of the H2CU Center is to optimize this potential for Italian students and researchers. Indeed, the H2CU project was created with the intention of establishing a Center of excellence for organizing international academic programs that can issue qualifications recognized in Italy and the United States.

Global Engagement at UC Berkeley

The University of California, Berkeley, has a long and rich tradition of scholarly interactions with the worldwide academic community that span the time from her establishment in 1868 to the present. Coordination of these many interactions and activities is currently vested in the campus’s Global Engagement Office (GEO), to facilitate and coordinate all such activities, from the pursuit of individual research collaborations to multi-lateral institutional alliances.

The Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America in Columbia University

More than 4 years ago, we had a promising encounter here at the Italian Academy. We brought the Director of Sapienza’s H2CU together with two brilliant Columbia professors from Italy, and discussed ideas for a joint Columbia/Sapienza program. Universities often sign agreements, but these agreements rarely lead to real-world programs that are so successful. That first meeting at the Academy led to many others, giving birth to one of Columbia’s most innovative and attractive programs. Each of the persons and institutions involved in it has enriched the program with valuable skills, expertise, and enthusiasm, making it a unique entity.

Collaborative Agreements in the Context of NYU as a Global Network University

The founders of New York University (NYU) chose in 1831 to move education out of the “ivy tower” and created an institution that was to be “in and of the city”. Since its inception, NYU has been providing its students with the opportunity to create new knowledge through research and discovery, to pass on knowledge to the next generation, and to apply knowledge in solving problems of societal significance. NYU has also been taken seriously its duty to prepare its students to become engaged and contributing citizens. The rapid spread of technology and information, the interdependence of economies, the transnational nature of major human challenges, and an increasing embrace of diversity have added new challenges to universities in the twenty-first century. NYU has responded to this globalization and “flattening of the world” by becoming a university that is now “in and of the world”, i.e. NYU prides itself to be a global network university.

Scientific Academic Cooperation Between University of Montreal and Sapienza University

Scientific academic cooperation between Italy and Canada is a core element of a bilateral relationship for interacademic collaboration, projects and agreements between specific teams who work in theoretical and applied research, or developed technological applications with subsequent industrial exploitation. In recent years academic cooperation has deeply increased thanks to the extent of collaboration between Italian and Canadian research centers and institutions. A number of disciplines with a scientific or social research orientation have been explored. A particularly fruitful synergy has enabled ideas circulation, international mobility, and a proliferation of funded projects. Over 3,000 Canadian scientists, 117 cooperation agreements between institutions of the two countries, three Italian scholars associations in the provinces of Quebec (in which academics, scholars and scientists of all disciplines participate), Ontario and of British Columbia enable important bilateral academic relationships and transversal cooperation between research and production systems.
