The Master Scientific commette the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences of the Polytechnic University of Marche promoted and organized this project in partnership with important humanitarian organizations and actors, such as INTERSOS, the Italian Red Cross, Emergency and Think Global.  The Master comes from an idea by Professor Maurizio Bevilaqua, Professor Claudia Paciarotti and Dr. Lodovico Mariani, who first identified the need to establish a master’s degree in logistics at university level in Italy, an experience that was still lacking in our country.

 

“A valuable choice that reaffirms our confidence in the social responsibility that scientific research and university education are called to take”, says Professor Maurizio Bevilaqua, Director of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences of the Polytechnic University of Marche.

“Skills, awareness and knowledge are the preconditions of any intervention, even more in the field of humanitarian logistics where every minute less can make a difference to people’s lives. Hence the commitment undertaken by our University, in collaboration with important humanitarian organizations, in developing a joint educational path, aimed at training the necessary skills of future “logistics professionals”, says Professor Claudia Paciarotti of the Marche Polytechnic University .

“Goodwill is not enough to make a good humanitarian operator,” says Dr. Mariani, expert in humanitarian aid and collaborator of the university for the design of the Master. “From Afghanistan to South Sudan, from Sri Lanka to Yemen, in emergencies related to conflicts or natural disasters, I realized how much the mastery of technical skills for using the latest generation humanitarian response tools, both fundamental to act in an effective and timely manner and to guarantee to thousands of people the best possible help “” This is why we wanted to put together a team of experts in various disciplines to support students, to offer them skills that can not only form the new generation of humanitarian workers, but also provide updates to those who have been doing this for years. “

 

“INTERSOS ‘investment in this new bet was great. The intent is to contribute to qualifying operators able to respond to the complex challenges posed by an increasingly complex international scenario and to increase the response capacity of organizations involved in the sector “, says Davide Berruti, Personnel Development Coordinator of INTERSOS.

The Master will last one year, will be held in English and is intended for a maximum of 25 participants. The enrollment opens on the coming days and the course starts on January 2020.
