Ca' Foscari University of Venice, Italy, is pleased to invite you to its first Staff Training Week entirely dedicated to its Library system.

In 2018 Ca’ Foscari University of Venice will celebrate its 150th anniversary: established in 1868 as the Regia Scuola Superiore di Commercio, the first business school in Italy, it had prestigious alumni such as the first governor of the Bank of Italy Bonaldo Stringher and economist, deputy and minister of the kingdom Francesco Ferrara as its first Director, and among its founders Luigi Luzzatti, founder of the banca Popolare di Milano and Prime minister from 1910 to 1911.

Ca’ Foscari now has more than 20 thousand enrolled students, is third in Italy for the quality of its research (ANVUR) and has a strong international nature and ambition, with its degree programmes and its recruitment to attract the best talents worldwide.

The University Library System (SBA) includes 4 main libraries (Arts and Humanities, Economics and Management, Languages and Cultures, Science and Technology), holding about 1 million books and 4,400 periodicals and providing access to a wide range of electronic resources. Each library is located in a unique building, where dedicated staff daily creates and manages local and international projects. 

For accommodation support, selected participants will contact the University Housing Office.
