Politecnico di Torino (www.polito.it) was founded in 1906 and has its roots in the Technical School for Engineers created in 1859. It is internationally ranked among the most important universities in Europe for engineering and architecture studies, with 33,000 students (out of which 15% are international students coming from over 100 different countries). Politecnico is a center of excellence for education and research in engineering, architecture, design and planning and it works in close cooperation with the socio-economic system. It is a comprehensive Research University where education and research complement each other and create synergies in order to address the needs of the economic system, of the local community and, above all, of its students. In November 2013, Politecnico was awarded by the EC with the label “HR Excellence in Research”, recognizing its commitment in offering to researchers coming from all over the world a positive and challenging environment. Politecnico is part of many public-private international inter-university networks (CESAER, CLUSTER, E.C.I.U, EUA, CMU). Politecnico can count on a great experience both in scientific projects and administrative management with more than 230 FP7 projects (66M€). In this regard, it is currently involved in 142 Horizon 2020 funded research and innovation projects (about 50M€).
