MIT’s motto “Mens et Manus” perfectly applies to the talent for integrative invention which has distinguished Italy since the Renaissance. Italy’s many excellent science labs and export-oriented companies offer many opportunities to MIT students and faculty.
More than 50 MIT students a year obtain research, work and teaching internships in Italy through our program. The MIT-Italy Seed Funds facilitate numerous research collaborations between MIT faculty and their counterparts at the Milano and Torino Politecnici, and the Universita di Pisa.
