By enhancing mobility and cooperation between institutions, it is intended to pool skills, platforms and resources to provide joint study programs or modules covering the themes of engineering, socio-economic and natural sciences.

"This is an opportunity for our students - said the rector Gerardo Canfora - for both didactics and research. The goal is to immerse our children in a dynamic international context that is in the process of germination. Very promising in terms of opportunities and confrontation because you can leave from Benevento and reach Europe without giving up your roots ".
