The International Mobility at the University of Trieste

Universities are crossroads of knowledge.

Following the Lisbon strategy, which emphasizes the creation of a more competitive and dynamic knowledge-based society, international mobility and internationalisation of the universities may represent a strategic tool for a social, cultural and economic development of a country. They can be considered as a challenge and an opportunity for the involved Higher Institutions to enlarge and enrich their range of the courses offered.

The internationalisation of its system, which has been started by the University of Trieste since long, is perfectly in line with these points and lies also in the strategic position and historical international vocation of the city of Trieste.

The University of Trieste is actively involved in different Programmes at a European level (LLP Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Alpe Adria, Bovec Summer School) and within wider European (Tempus) and international frameworks (ISEP Programme, International Mobility Grant Programme, Marco Polo Project).

A focus of the Programme

The main objective of the International Master’s Degree in Neuroscience is to provide a multidisciplinary training in both basic and applied neurobiology, spanning from single molecules to whole organisms in normal or pathological conditions. Students will be introduced to new tools and methods enabling them to investigate how the brain works, interacts with the body, drives behavior, and forms the basis for the complex biological machine, which has allowed humans to achieve amazing milestones in artistic creativity, technology, and invention. Students will acquire strong professional skills for the development of fundamental knowledge and innovative therapies and diagnostics for more than 1,000 nervous system disorders that affect over 1 billion people worldwide....
