Why Prato and Europe?

Our proximity to the cultural, intellectual and industrial wealth of Europe enriches our teaching and learning.

We use European sites, global expertise and international peer groups to create a unique experience for our students. The Centre also acts as a research incubator by enabling networks of global expertise and specialists to convene on issues of international relevance and complexity in a strategic location.

The city of Prato provides a rich environment for teaching, learning and intellectual enquiry.

The centre engages with local institutions and industry to bring both depth and relevance to its programs ensuring they ‘make sense in place’, while actively contributing to the contemporary challenges of the city and region.
