OUR AIM

The Italian Society aims to create a platform and network for those interests in Italy to discuss and contribute meaningfully to Italian economic, political, scientific and cultural matters. The society is open to all and affiliation to the University of Cambridge is not necessary. At the moment we are particularly interested in including career opportunities for our members as well as improving our social corporate responsibility. We would be very happy to build partnerships in those areas with other organisations.
