Learning outcomes

This seminar series is part of a broader project meant to improve social wellbeing in the Veneto region thanks to workshops on financial and economic education. In particular, this series includes 12 seminars managed by professors of the Department of Business and Management and the Department of Economics, about topics of specific interest in Economics, but of general interest for everyday life.

Involved institutions: promoted by the Veneto Region and implemented by the University of Verona, in cooperation with the other Universities in Veneto (Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, IUAV University of Venice, University of Padova).
Users: Bachelor's and Master's students of the School of Economics and Management.


The 12 lectures will be covered in remote mode during the first semester of the academic year 2020/21. Registration is required through the website www.ilfuturoconta.it for each single lecture that the student plans to attend. The topics covered are identical and presented both in Verona and in Vicenza, usually on Tuesday in Vicenza and on Thursday in Verona. The full schedule follows, with an indication for each lecture of the speaker, the title of the lecture and the link for the registration.
Beware: all the lectures are held in Italian.
