The Progetto Rocca intends to create an MIT-Politecnico network of scholars and young researchers who stay in touch past their research stays at MIT and Politecnico or their joint collaborations.

Rocca Fellows and Alumni have already built a strong community in Milano and Cambridge and an active Rocca Fellows Group on LinkedIn. All Rocca Fellows are expected to join, keep in touch and contribute while at MIT and afterwards. Please join here.

To all new and continuing Rocca Fellows: congratulations, welcome and Buon Lavoro!
