Partnership with the University of Eastern Piedmont on construction materials
Buzzi Unicem and the University of Eastern Piedmont (UPO) at Vercelli have entered a 9-year agreement to broaden their knowledge and collaborate on the development of innovative materials and solutions for construction of the future.
During the period of the partnership, our company will set up laboratories on the modern UPO campus in Vercelli to conduct R&D and chemical, physical and instrumental analyses in a dynamic and stimulating environment, and thus also contribute to the cultural and scientific growth of the students and teaching staff. Buzzi Unicem will provide funding for a fixed-term research position and a scholarship for a three-year doctoral research program.
The goal of the partnership is to leverage the synergies between the basic academic research and its industrial application. UPO will also be able to expand its materials science and technology educational programs by offering students and researchers work and study experiences within a business context through an agreement with Buzzi Unicem to engage undergraduates and young graduates in internships.
