Warsaw University of Technology and EU Project Management
Three Collegio Nuovo Students - Sara Franzone (Political Sciences), Marianna Gortan (Medicine), Ludovica Tursini (Political Sciences) selected to attend the annual festival of Warsaw University of Technology - WUT (November 14-15th 2014). On this occasion they will also take part in a workshop on the project management  and writing of projects within the framework of the European Union call for proposals. WUT is a founder member of EucA.

Tursini's account: What I appreciated most of this experience in Warsaw was the visit to P&G where a woman from the staff explained to us what to be a leader actually means. It was very useful to understand how important is to make people be self-confident and to encourage them - by doing they can gain results more easily: that is the role of a good leader. Another useful activity was the workshop consisting in making up a project to be submitted to the UE. We were in groups of four people and we had to think about every aspect of the project and then present it in few minutes after that they had taught us the right method to do that. It was a funny way to learn how to behave in this kind of situations meanwhile knowing people from other countries and their way of thinking.
