The first edition of the University Festival is the biggest event ever organized by University Network, the Italian startup created in 2015 by a group of students from Milan’s State University. University Network follows about one million students throughout their university process: orientation, education path, and completion. The University Festival is the biggest university event ever organized in Italy, and will take place on May 13th in Milan, at the Talent Garden in Via Calabiana. An entire day dedicated to education, technology, and sustainability. The event will be presented and hosted by Antonella Arpa, whose influencer name is Himorta, and Chiara Piotto from Sky Tg24. The university event will continue from 10:00 in the morning until 1:00 at night and will involve workshops, speeches, street food and music.
The promoters of the University Network event are the Confindustria Lombardia, the National Association of Young Innovators, and the European Commission. The collaboration of the City of Milan and the participation of institutions and promoters are indispensable. Included amongst the sponsors is Tucano, which will play the role of supporting partner and will offer all participants shoppers and foldable backpacks. Ambassadors, on the other hand, will receive the Melange neoprene covers, iconic products perfect for protecting laptops and, finally, journalists and event sponsors will receive Piego travel sets.
