The protagonists of IPPI!
The idea of the partnership is to actively involve students who personally contribute to the realization of the activities and products, “infotainment tools”, intended to entertain and inform.
Students will be able to learn the concepts of protection, counterfeiting and creativity by collaborating with Spanish students.
Schools and classes that actively participate in the project:
- Istituto Maitani: Tecnico Amministrazione e Marketing, Tecnico Costruzione, Ambiente e Territorio 3AFM/CAT
- Liceo Majorana: Liceo Scientifico, Liceo Scientifico – opzione Scienze Applicate, Liceo linguistico Classe 5SA1 Classe 5SA2
Collaborating with us
To enhance the resources and tools created within the project, the Chamber of Commerce of Umbria has created fruitful collaborations with national stakeholders, partners in activities aimed at young people and job orientation.
Junior Achievement Italy
With the collaboration of Ja Italia we could present the project and test some tools tested to a wider, inter regional audience of teachers and students; we could go deeper in the concepts of innovation and protection of intellectual property as an asset for business development and local economy.
Junior Achievement is the largest non-profit organization in the world that prepares young people for entrepreneurship and their future work, through practical and experiential teaching methods and programs.
In Italy, JA was founded in 2002 with the aim of taking an active role in renewing education and disseminating educational initiatives in schools to guide young people in their future choices by supporting teachers with volunteers in the adoption of skills teaching.
JA Italia participated in the National Coalition for Entrepreneurship set up by the Ministry of Education which developed the syllabus “Education for entrepreneurship”, based on the European framwork ENTRECOMP.
Thanks to the distance learning enhancement in an covid-19 context, JA Italy is experimenting with new PCTO formulas (paths for transversal skills and orientation) based on experiential and digital teaching. The validity of this formula has been recognized within the Digital Solidarity initiative.
As part of the activities of the Italian Finance Police aimed at combating the various illicit phenomena that threaten industrial property, “Made in Italy”, copyright and consumer safety, a meeting was held with the students in which they were recounted the counterfeiting experiences discovered by the operations of the Italian Finance Police in particular in the clothing and accessories sector and shown concrete cases of obvious false and false author.
