A work and life experience: the “Join Us” project

Thursday 28 September, at the headquarters of Confindustria Bergamo, the final ceremony of “JOIN US: Talents for chemistry and polymers” was held, an experimental project of PCTO (acronym for Paths for transversal skills and orientation).

In this initiative, 9 local companies were involved (including Chemicals and those belonging to the Plastics and Rubber group) and 10 students from four technical institutes: two Sicilian, from Gela and Piazza Armerina, one from Ancona as well as the Bergamo-based 'ITIS G Natta', which last April hosted the 'Chemistry Olympics', where it all began.

During the final ceremony, all the kids presented a report of their work experience in the company, which was then commented on by each company tutor.

Mariella Giannattasio, President of the Chemicals Group of Confindustria Bergamo, also took part in the event, commenting positively on the initiative.

“Young people are the future of companies and for this reason it is important to listen to them and understand their ideas, putting them in contact with companies where these ideas can be realised”.
