The University of Siena has dedicated offices to facilitate technology transfer and relations with the world of business.
The Liaison Office was set up to:
- help disseminate the results of research performed within the University’s departments;
- support the competitiveness of small and medium sized businesses, especially in southern Tuscany.
Both a source of information and a sorting house, it matches the specific scientific and technological competences that the University can supply to the demands of businesses, and vice versa.
It also facilitates the creation of common projects involving the University’s research centres and businesses.
The Liaison Office is the University’s point of reference regarding:
• Spin-off companies;
• Technology Transfer.
The University of Siena’s Placement Office is a point of contact between young graduates and businesses.
It helps students and new graduates enter into employment in businesses and public and private bodies both in Italy and abroad.
The Placement Office also deals with setting up and managing work experience placements, both as part of degree courses or after graduation.
