The Italian Bio-pharma leader Dompé in the city L’Aquila has launched a new Educational resource program for schools and teachers to promote Biotechnology to the younger generation.
Even though Italy has a large and international network of public and state universities and schools offering degrees in higher education, it is always a country associated with a lack of innovation and progress in Academia. But this could all be about to change!
‘GENEration Biotechnology‘ is the new project sponsored by Dompé, a leading Italian bio-pharmaceutical company. Starting in January 2016, students of lower secondary school age will be able to be introduced to Biotechnology within their current curriculum in schools.
Dompé’s strategy is targeting the fundamentals of the Italian educational system. The new project has been introduced this 20th December in L’Aquila by Nathalie Dompé, (Head of Corporate Social Responsibility) and Stefania Pezzopane (professor of Molecular Biology at the University of L’Aquila).
The initiative aims enhance awareness towards the importance of Biotechnology and the role that can play in the future of new generations.
