Neri is the Academic Sponsor of Italy’s first Higher Education Course in Outdoor Experience Design: a new specialisation for architects and designers set up by POLI.design-Consortium of Milan Polytechnic for those intending to specialise their knowledge in designing outdoor spaces, in line with the evolution of the marketplace and with aesthetic communication. The sixth course, scheduled for Milan from 2 to 27 July this year, will be aimed at graduates – preferably in architecture – and at designers, engineers and professionals in the industry, from Italy and abroad, who intend to perfect their skills in the development, design and furnishing of outdoor spaces for the public and private sectors. Courses are taught by top staff from Milan Polytechnic, who will develop the style themes as part of the design and furnishing aspect, together with specialist professionals who will develop the business, technical and sociological themes to give an all-round view of the sector. Collaboration with specialist companies will give course participants the chance to enjoy constant contact with those already active in the industry. The results of the research and applications developed in the final work project of the course will be presented to the media at a preview at SUN 2012, industry expo at Rimini Fiera and part of the events planned for POLI.design. With this sponsorship programme, Neri offers several bursaries to those students who, according to the course teachers are seen to be the most deserving. More info here.
