The University of Warwick has announced a collaboration with Università Ca' Foscari in Venice spanning a number of activities. As well as opportunities to develop joint courses, the agreement includes a 2-year postdoctoral position based at Ca' Foscari researching the history of the relationship between Venice and Asia. In addition Warwick will work with Ca' Foscari to deliver the long-running Warwick in Venice programme, enabling Warwick students to benefit from the new closer links during their term in Venice.
Professor Stuart Croft, Vice Chancellor and President, University of Warwick said:
"Since our foundation the University of Warwick has been proud to be an international university, with Warwick maintaining a presence in Venice for over fifty years and building new partnerships through the EUTOPIA alliance. I’m delighted that our new collaboration with Università Ca' Foscari will provide students with the ideal opportunity to study and live in one of Europe’s greatest cities as part of their course."
The Rector of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Prof. Michele Bugliesi, commented:
“We are very proud to be launching this collaboration with the University of Warwick, one of the most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom, which marks another important achievement in the internationalization process of Ca’ Foscari; thanks to this synergy we will be contributing to make our University an increasingly cosmopolitan university in terms of education and science, with the presence of students and researchers from all over the world. In Ca’ Bottacin, already home to international centres of advanced research, Ca’ Foscari and Warwick researchers will work together to study the history of Venice over the centuries and its connections with Asia.”
