On 7 June, the “Centro di promozione accademica per l’orientamento allo studio in Italia – Uni-Italia” was officially presented at the Villa Farnesina in Rome. The presentation was attended by the Director of Institutional and International Relations of the Universidad.es Foundation, César Álvarez Alonso. The other main European agencies, the British Council, the German agency DAAD and Campus France were also represented at the event.

The Uni-Italia association has been set up by the Italian government to promote its university system throughout the world. It is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education, Universities and Science, the Ministry of Interior, and the Fondazione Italia Cina. As well as its headquarters in Rome, Uni-Italia also has three centres in the Chinese cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, underlining once again China’s importance in the international mobility of university students.

The presentation was attended by the Minister of Education, Universities and Science, Francesco Profumo and by various officials from the Ministries of Foreign and Home Affairs. The representatives of the European agencies joining Álvarez Alonso were Antoine Grassin, Director General of Campus France, Ulrich Grothus, Vice-General Secretary of the DAAD, and Jo Beall, Director of Education of the British Council. The President of the EAIE, Gudrun Paulsdottir, was also present.
