Varvel SpA is amongst the supporters of the Italian Universities Newspaper, a paper which is designed to encourage dialogue between the academic world and the universe of production.
Helping young people enters the world of work and encouraging development through dialogue between the worlds of research and production. With this in mind Varvel SpA, a Bolognese company which has been producing reducers and speed variators for the world market for over sixty years, has chosen to support The Italian Universities Newspaper.
The publication, which was established in 2014 in synergy with the University world, the Italian Conference of University Rectors and Confindustria, is a Web Journal which aims to bring the university system closer to the world of enterprises. The project, fully supported by Varvel, aims to provide a vehicle for useful news for these two universes, which in Italy are not so used to interacting in a fluid concrete fashion. The objective is to allow knowledge of the economic world to emerge through company presentation data sheets including core business, possibilities for internships, needs and professional profiles being sought. In fact, the university world creates the Italian Universities Newspaper by means of a container for all the information it considers useful for students, the faculties and research.
Companies also have the possibility to make themselves known through this tool, providing the study hubs with news concerning projects, investment, case histories and new solutions being put into practice in their sector, pointing out needs, requests and possibilities in terms of employment or in depth study for theses and doctorates.
This level of attention for young people, which has always been an integral part of Varvel’s philosophy, put into practice through study visits, meetings with students and school children, collaboration with university research centres and full support for undergraduates and post graduate students. An effective collaboration since 2009 has enabled Varvel to obtain «Ok Intern Badge», a recognition the “Republic of Interns” awards to enterprises which promote interns in compliance with the “Charter of Interns’ Rights”.
“A socially responsible company carries out its mission through actions of various kinds – states Francesco Berselli, President of Varvel SpA – amongst which showing responsibility towards the younger generations. To create development we need well-educated young people and industry must foster access to the world of work by also providing direct experience or knowledge of the dynamics which characterize the manufacturing sector”.
“As we are a company specialized in mechanical transmissions which can be customised and are rigorously made in Italy, operating throughout the world – declares Mauro Cominoli, Managing Director of Varvel SpA – we need to give space to educated young people. It is unrealistic to think that young people can respond to the needs of enterprises unless we foster knowledge of the reality they aspire to become part of. Furthermore, indicating what the requirements of industries are is the best way to allow them to prepare themselves in the best way possible so as to create a fruitful alliance”.
