Field Experience for PMC Master students!
A Training Team for a Local Development Project in L’Aquila with the PMC Master students
The PMC Master programme, training future high-level project designers specialised in international and local development programmes, culminated in the Field Experience: an opportunity for putting into practice the skills acquired by the students and for the improvement of the planning capacity of local actors with the support of the resolution of problematic situations in the area.
During 3 intense days of work in L’Aquila, the training team, composed of 16 students of the Master PMC in Project Management for International Cooperation and Alessio Di Carlo, Co-Director of the Master, supported a very heterogeneous group of local and national stakeholders to identify and formulate a local development project to be presented by the municipality of L’Aquila to the European Programme UIA (Urban Innovative Actions).
“I congratulate again the Master Co-Director Alessio and Cinzia for guiding us throughout the whole workshop. It has been one of the most amazing experiences because we tested our skills acquiring more awareness on the things learned throughout the course”, said one of the students involved in the Field Experience.
The students had the opportunity to be an active part of a real project process, a full immersion with local and national non-profit organisations, with institutions, for-profit companies and university to apply, in a real context, all the tools acquired during the Master.
Using the words of our students: “The most interesting aspect was that it has been a real experience in contact with the problems and needs of people, discovering how ideas and suggestions can grow up from a common shared situation of information and emotions”.
