Jump start a project with Italian colleagues
The MIT-Italy Seed Funds enable MIT faculty and research scientists to initiate transatlantic projects and collaboration with the Politecnico of Milano and the Politecnico of Torino. Applicants are encouraged to involve MIT students in their projects.
Help us create opportunities for MIT students
MIT-Italy matches about 50 MIT students with all-expenses-paid professional internships and research opportunities annually. Encourage your students, both undergrads and graduate students, to take advantage of this unique MIT program. We can help you find labs and departments that will host MIT students in Italy, and may be able to help funding their stays at labs you’re collaborating with.
